LINKS! that currie 9" is goin to be 'spensive

$1500:

with they curry 9" and all the CV and axles from RCV, this whole conversion, minus custom arms and fabrication, will be at almost $4000!

This whole project would probably cost up to $10K with most fab shops including parts, material and labor.

Yeah right try at least $15k to $20k. Steering alone for this would be $4k+

what all would go into the steering if you were to do it?

I was thinking of switching over to a steering box down the road anyways, they seem stronger.

To make a setup like this worth it a Howe rack would be the way to go, swingset would be a bit goofy with a center link setup

Gah! I have been looking for a used front diff to do this very thing! But.... no luck. So I was looking at curry. Also search around on the pirate4x4 forum. There have been quite a few discussions about doing this very thing

This is why you see so many KOH rigs going to TTB beams. $5k vs $20k. And actual performance gains of the arms is minimal.

But WAY better than a solid axle! I love the idea and always have. Just not ready for an engine to move back while I'm still enjoying long trips.

What hubs were you planning on running? Stock unit bearings? We were planning on a custom 4wd set from bms around $3500-4500

Also i think your numbers are a little off on the currie. I was quoted around $3500 for a complete front diff about 6months ago with arb locker. Maybe i should re call and check those numbers.

rcvs were right on though about $2500.

this is an old ass thread... but you could use dana 44 (or even 60 for that matter) and then just run a u joint outer CV inner in the same style that solo does the taco kit.
