    When I went a while ago I remember it being around $250 or a little higher. You had to pay for everything on the axle not just the complete axle assembly. I just looked it up to see though and found this:

    Axle Assy, Truck D To D $150.25 with a $35 core
    Axle Assy, Rear - Straight D To D $100.25 with a $35 core


    And here's that tracker for the motor swap I mentioned earlier. Waiting on an email still.

    Pull a part, $180. It really depends on who rings it up, but these were priced correctly as rear axle, disk brake type, with the core charge.

    They rang up the first one as $140 and I was handing her the money and some other girl walked up and said that was wrong and changed it to $180 because it was disks. So, Tripp's and Richard's were both $180. Dad got the deal of the day because the same smart *** that corrected her on the 8.8s said the HP30 was a drum brake rear, for $105, and I didn't correct her.

    If it is a good running complete tracker for your motor swap I wouldn't pass it up over $50 bucks. That being said I would think he'd take $500.

    Agreed, don't miss out over $50. If it runs well its worth it. If it is a 4 speed auto it should have 5.13 gears. You can sell the complete rear and the front third to someone with sami axles for a few bucks, and scrap the rest for $200-$300.

    If it's the 3 speed, gears should be 4.30.

    I feel like I see ppl run the autos a lot behind those motors. Is it a good set up like that?

    Probably my favorite samurai built by G-fab. Gotta love the woodgrain creepers.

    I've seen a few but never really paid attention if they were 3 or 4 speeds. Also don't know how well they hold up. It would add some complications to the swap because the tracker/sidekick doesn't use a divorced tcase. Depending on the length you could probably use a 2wd tracker trans into the Sami tcase or you would have to build new mounts, use tracker case, and new driveshafts.

    Yeah I am keeping the samurai manual trans. I had fun wheeling the manual last time out and with the low gearing and lack of wheel speed I would like to have that kind of control and I might as well keep the 6.5 t case. The ease of the swap is also part way in that reason. Waiting on an email from this guy, I wish he posted a phone number.

    Um, why are the only two colors available Black and Pink. Really! Pink!

    Ol powerstroke kept throwing P0405 code for EGR low circuit voltage. So bought the replacement EGR valve to swap them out. $241.38... dang diesel parts ain't cheap.

    I haven't had any problems besides the code except when I towed the trailer to Charleston and back to get the Samurai, the last hour of the trip coming home it went into limp mode limiting the amount of boost the turbo made and the truck was a dog. Never did it again after that, but still is throwing the code.
