D44 & 9" run $300 - $350.
I ass-ume you have stock D35 and 8.8, which are probably in the same range.

here's one to go in the pile too. how much with a Ford 7.5" rearend with 4.27 or 4.56 gears? (i've yet to blow mine up, and at 275,000 km on it, and YES, I HAVE BEEN TRYING! i've yet to kill it) mind you, i'm only 2wd, but i'm running 30s, and i do occasionally like doing a smoke-show, burning out, or just plain laying rubber through an intersection, which i can on a dry day with 3.45 gears and a 2.9L with a 5 spd........... they're tougher than most people give 'em credit (oh, and forgot my 1/2 km long brakestand i did a couple years back up at cascade falls for a couple Mustangs. you guys may have seen it, i killed my A4LD (front bearing was missing, clutches missing), killed my back brakes, and killed a new 205/14... but no dead 7.5"er........

opps, and almost forgot, split the torque converter too. you can still faintly see the mark today, from the road off of Sylvester that goes directly to the falls, to the speed limit sign way down in the distance....

get a locker, and a bit bigger tires. sounds like you could snap that 7.5 in no time :)
Pretty hard to cause catastrophic damage to an open diff!

With the stock limited slip my Dad's 7.5" rearend went KABOOM on the way home from its first wheeling trip. Start shopping for a new rearend now, cause its gonna go once you get offroad.

Hey, Dan!
He's been beating the HELL out of his 7.5 as long as I've known him!!! Mine has a T-case in front of the 7.5, with 4.10 L/S, and all I end up breaking is driveshafts (catastrophic explosion about every 14 months). I've been beating the hell out of mine, too

the factory 4.10 is very strong however if you go after market in an extreme ratio such as 5.13 you will start blowing rear ends on a weekly basis the 8.8 in a 5.13 is a much more reliable way to go

been there done that

i've been beating the **** outta my 7.5" (and i think it's still full of water from my little "vedder canal" escapade), and i'm very surprised i haven't blown it. however, i'm welding up the spare carrier i have really soon, and then we'll see how well it'll stand up to the abuse. also, i'm only 2wd, so no major gear reduction to kill it.

you know those 7.5 are pretty damn tough. I welded the gears in my buddies 83 ranger, with a 5.0 under the hood, 3.73 gears. and 38`` tsl-sx swampers, he doesnt wheel it too hard but on the street it sideways and brake stands all the time and after about 6 months he broke his first axle shaft, sideways out of the gas station and when he came off the curb and the tire touched ground again, it was all over. now its got a Dana 44 with disk brakes from a Lincon
