Ford wants how much ?!?!?

I was at the Ford dealership getting a couple parts and for laughs I asked the service department for a price on converting my existing 3.27 rear end to a trac-lok rear end.. Not an entire pumpkin swap, not an upgrade to 3.73's, but just a quote on using my existing gears, pumpkin, etc and installing whatever was needed to add the trac-lok.

Ready for this...


$1465.00

The trak lok unit is only about $275 iirc. That's one hell of a lot of labor cost.... even at today's rates.

Sometimes, we just need to remember what the rules of life really are:
You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Actually its near $500 from the dealership, they don't do the FRPP pricing. I learned this just trying to get some different shims for mine.
