Please post some pics and gotchas.....I am doing the same thing, have done a bunch of reading and have the parts sitting in my garage.

Kinda depends on condition demand and location. Probably best to try and sell on a 4runner/taco forum for SAS upgrades. Or here to for someone building up a buggy/wheeler and going arbs.

Have they been rebuilt? Axle seals leaking? Super clean or super rusty? Etc.

Club member here picked up a pair for 500. And I've seen 800-1200 range it seems. Of course when you find one someone that doesn't want them then someone else gets a great deal. Pull a part yard here is 185 per axle but you never see cruisers.

I am also in the same boat. I maybe should have asked the same question, but its too late now. I am selling mine to the guy im getting the locked axles from. Mine have 208k on them, and have not been rebuilt and do leak, but no rust. I had no idea what they were worth and accepted his first offer of $500 for the pair. He is picking them up and delivering the lockers though. I don't think its a horrible deal. They wont sit around the garage for who knows how long and I don't have to ship them.

I'll buy a rear of anyone for ~$300. I'm in central/northern, CA between Modesto and Stockton. Willing to drive to get it. I don't even need the diff, so you can keep that and make some more $...
