I, like most everyone on the site (I'm sure) do not have scrap steel laying around to do the build, or can even find a decent price on an axle. Dana 60s run $1k+ alone. Nor do we have good buddies to give us free shit.

I jumped in a bit late on this one but have been quite curious of the results. Based on the the last comments, this should be done by now. Do we get to see pictures of the finished product?
