Default Market for used 8" track-loc 3rd member?

Hey, I'm looking to swap 3rd members this winter and try a TrueTrac diff... so wondering if there's much of a market for a used TrackLoc posi? I'd prefer to just sell the entire 3rd member and order a complete unit, but if buyers shy away from used then I'll just swap the carriers and hold on to the TrackLoc for a spare probably... It's an 8" diff.

Anybody have an idea what it'd be worth?

used 8 inch trac locs can be hard to come by. A used third member with a good ratio I would value around $300-$350

it's a 3.80 ratio. That's lower than I was hoping/expecting though.

Is it Traction-Lok or Equalock?

I hope that was a rebuilt (with gold plating) and ready to drop in. I tried selling my freshly rebuilt NINE inch trak-lok 3.50 gears for $350 and didn't have too many interest buyers (that also wanted to pay shipping).

I'd expect to pay around $300-350 for a USED 8-inch Traction-Lok unit, tops, as you're going to have a minimum of $125-150 in parts and a few hours labor invested in making it "fresh", and that's reusing the gearset.

problem is the weight and shipping.

i'd gladly pay $400 for a good condition trac-lok 8" with a 3.80 gearset, but once you tack on a couple hundred in shipping its not worth it.

The shipping is less than you think- I don't think you'll have any trouble selling it but it depends on how "used" it is. Re-builr ones run $800 on ebay +shipping + core. Most people want a trac-loc, that said the gearing is a little steep (unless your doing a t-5 swap. Perfect gear for that. John

Saw the orig post, $500 was the magic number, I think that's fair, and mine has maybe 5000 miles on it or less, and still works well, new owner should get a lot of years out of it still.
