I lost my damm catalog but that looks like a decent deal for a upgrade to better axles for the weekend wheeler. what were they $1200 rear $1300 front ?
I wish I had the loose cash aroundI couldn't believe it. You can get a bolt in replacement for probably cheaper than buying lockers, gears, and alloy shafts.
since you have to go ahead and buy the gears... just spend a few more pennies and get some ProRock 60s with the gears you want, and then be done with the end of the drivetrain.I wish I had the loose cash around
I would pick a set up and then sell my HD 44 rear to offset the cost some. Hell I could even re-gear them for a lot less seeing as they are out of the vehicle and I am not in a rush to have a driveable vehicle. And then sell the gears as they have 0 miles on them
maybe put some alloys in the front
swap them out over a weekend
make locker switching system
not to be rude but "a few more pennies"since you have to go ahead and buy the gears... just spend a few more pennies and get some ProRock 60s with the gears you want, and then be done with the end of the drivetrain.
a few pennies is all relativenot to be rude but "a few more pennies"
both axles with gears and instal of gears would cost the same or LESS than a prorock 60 rear with a selectable locker only way I am getting ProRocks is if someone gives them to me or a set falls off a truck in front of my house
I am building my JK on a serious budget, everything right now is in the want category and not the need category. Enlisted in the military does not always give you a shatload of extra cash to toss at a vehicle. That and it will be the "once in a while toy" for the most part. I have other vehicles that I don't feel bad if I lay them on the roof. a 60 would be nice, but overkill in my JK and I would rather put 60's in one of my other vehicles
The JK is the only vehicle I have with a warrentee and seeing as how I upgraded the drivetrain to unlimited it will be a WHILE before I use it as my "stupid" toya few pennies is all relative
Your JK will move down the line and become your rollover toy eventually. Instead of wasting money by continuing to replace axles..... Just do the axles once. Then when it becomes a trailer queen, the axles will be ready for the engine upgrade. See, I was just trying to save you money in the long run.
I heard that. It costs too much damn money to have funThe JK is the only vehicle I have with a warrentee and seeing as how I upgraded the drivetrain to unlimited it will be a WHILE before I use it as my "stupid" toy
Its not I don't have the cash for a trailer queen, I dont have the cash for a tow rig
