What does a good 9 inch rear cost?

I was thinking about putting a 9 inch rear in my51 f1 it has a 302/aod &
the original 51 rear with 3:73 gears in it.i might be able to pick up this old
65 ford f100 with a 352 (i think that is what it is) & 3 on the tree with a
9 inch rear for about $350-$400-the truck body is shot it has been sitting
for 3 yrs

Around here, you could pull the rear end and sell the rest for $350.00 scrap.

Depends on what you call a good 9 inch. A good 9 inch to me would be around $2800. That gets you a nodular case with a Daytona pinion housing, 31 spline axles, a Dura Grip or Detroit Locker and a new heavy duty housing. Almost any 9 inch that you get from a salvage yard or out of something old is going to need a complete rebuild, and it's probably going to have 28 spline axles and a standard differential. Figure on at least $400 for the rebuld and another $900 or more to replace the axles and differential.

Great buy. Yea, like you said, most people can get by with something stock. I like big blocks, 4 speeds and big tires, so stock isn't going to hold up to what I would put it through.
