    Re: 1 ton MJ build.

    I look forward to watching the letzroll built 4634 ****** axles live on.. Andrew always said he had to build it "sally proof" as if there was a way to break tons on 35's I would find it. Please beat the piss out of these axles with the 37s as they were intended to do.

    Did you have these axles on a trailer at Discount Tire today? Was over there earlier and saw some that looked just like this, along with a bunch of other rock crawler goodies.

    There was a bent chromo shaft in that 8.8 I bought from you a year or so ago. You must have hit that sucker hard on something

    I don't recall having chromos in the 8.8 If it was bent why didn't you say something I would have squared it up with you to make it right.


    thanks for taking the axles. Good luck with the build.

    I'm sure you would have, but I didn't notice it until months after I bought the axle. It wasn't a big deal, Andrew got me a replacement for pretty cheap.

    And it did have chromoly shafts when i bought it from you. Still even had the Yukon stickers on the ends.

    We got the wheels and tires mounted on the axles last night... Oh so sexy!

    Hopefully rock_starr will get a few more pictures posted soon.

    Re: 1 ton MJ build.

    The rear is going in today. The front I'm waiting on brackets and plating. Plus I need to cut my temporarily hard mounted front axle out.

    Now I need to start hunting for good cheap steel for my bumpers, winch mount, sliders, and plating. It will eventually get some other exo work done but for now it's not in the budget.

    Little bit of progress so far. Got the rear axle under and loosely mounted. Gotta figure out how to lift the axle a bit to get the jack under it now.
