I understand now

I had never done the math on what it REALLY costs to build an axle. I have always been like a lot of folks, thinking that D60's in the for sale section must be lined with gold. I'm building one for myself, and I'll tell ya, that chit adds up QUICK!

My Amazon shopping cart has just about everything I'm gonna need, including Grizzly, R&P, etc. I'm looking at $2 large, and that's without CrMo's. I'll love it when its done, and luckily, I'm not having to check couch cushions to do it. But damn its an eye-opener.

Can't wait to start putting parts together and then seeing the benefits of the beef.

No kidding tell me about it, I figure im over 3 on mine. It is nice to be able to stomp on the gas pedal and not really worry about stuff breaking though, knock on wood.

Ya, ARB, chromo 35s, CTMs, 538s, Dedenbear knuckles, drive flanges, not cheap at all, get it together it is worth beating the snot out of it and not worring about breaking, it's the rear you have to worry about, 35 spline chromos. Haven't broke it yet on 43s...well worth it. L
