Default 7.5" Rear End

My welded rear end is taking it's sweeeeet toll on my front tires and my wallet accordingly.

I need another 7.5" carrier.

I would like a Limited Slip or a locker of any kind.

If someone's got an open carrier for free/$uber cheap I'll take it, As later down the line I'll drop a lunch-box insert locker into it instead.

I have 3.45 gears in mine, and I have no idea if 7.5" rear ends have a carrier break like Dana axles do.

I'll take a whole axle to save setup costs for sure. I have 9" brakes so anything with 9" or 10" is obviously fine. No abs or anything (83)

Let me know what you got!
I'm in Denver/ CO
WIll drive 500mi + for the right deal

I got a 7.5 we just took from my dads truck. Has a 4.10 open diff. Brand new brakes hardware and drums. It will need a new brake line from wheel to wheel. Brand new bearings in the carrier, gears have around 1500 miles on them. Chrome diff cover

That'd be sweeeet but 4.10's won't do it for me.

I've got 3.45's and want to keep them/ or go LOWER numerically ( I have very small tires and a 4spd lol)

I got the 3.73 gears that we took out of it. jfyi. He was looking to get 100 beans for the whole rear end. I guess we could sell the carrier out of it, if you could get away with that, then just keep your gears. just throwing it out there!
