    I agree. Those should be pretty common in the yards. Good luck.

    I'm in Indiana but I have a Chevy rearend that came out of an 86 1/2 ton. I had it redone with an Auburn locker and 3.73 gears.

    In 1986 they quit putting 350s in 1/2 tons and had that worthless 305 guttless wonder. After my 86 had about 70,000 on it, I redone the rearend so that truck had a little guts. My wife wrecked it after 6 months of the rearend being done. I saved it and the 5 speed manual trans as I thought I could find a use for it.

    I do not know if it will fit your truck or not. It cost me 800 years ago to get it fixed up. Thats why I bought the truck back from the insurance company when my wife totaled it. Sold the motor to a neighbor kid as it was fixed up a little bit as I really got tired of it being a gutless wonder. Scrapped the rest. Wife got hit in drivers door by a little Dodge car that litterly went under the truck. Bent the frame, nobody hurt, lost a nice truck.

    Give me a call if interested 1 219 872 7282 Michigan City, Indiana 46360

    If you feel like driving this far to pick it up, I'll gladly sell it to you. Auburn makes a good locker.
