    329 for a thick 5.13 14 bolt gear? What did you get Superiors? Mine cost me $200 shipped. When I sell my 97 C2500 it will be the samething. Detroit, 35 spline outers and lockouts or maybe slugs, Bilsten 5150s, front springs, doubler. $$$$$

    Wow, that is an outrageous price on the 5.13's for the 14ff. Over on PBB, you can get them for around $160 shipped!!! :eek:

    I got all this stuff from a local shop that had everything in stock. I'm impatient and don't want to wait...Instant gratification. :) Thats why the prices are higher I would imagine. Brand is US Gear I think? I don't remember. :crazy:

    First off I love your work/mods and write ups. You say your impatient but you haven't had your truck in 4wd for 2 years. Come on admit it, that money in your pocket was making your pants sag. If I had done that it would have rained, iced, snowed for the next month and I would have had to sit inside just looking at all my new parts. Can't wait to see some wheeling shots of that thing finished.

    Nice way to spend some dough. You did get some really good parts with the money. I plan on spending the same amount here in a few months on my rig, feels good:)

    HOLY S***!!!!

    That's about $250 more than you would have paid buying them from me. I could have had them there next day and still saved you $200. :frown1:

    Hmmm... what good does it to telling him that now? :crazy:

    Just seems like in my experiences anytime I tell anyone what I've just picked up... "oh man you should have told me you, I could have gottan you better deal."
