    Got a couple things to address, hopefully it does not come accross as rambling

    I am kinda frustrated with the lack of floirda members. Obviously its not anyones problem or fault, but wanted to know if there was more?. I have been debating weather or not to fork out $25 bux for the CK5 membership, but if there is no one in florida, i dont think it will be worth it.

    2. I need some axles among many other things. Dana 44 or a good cheap used 10bolt for the front and 12 or 14bolt for the rear. Problem is I have noticed that in the for sale forum, everyone is from colorado, california and NY. Yes i could join and post in the wanted area, but if no ones in florida, then its a waiste, and shipping doubles the price on anything else i buy here (and junk yards here never get this kinda stuff in...crazy...)


    So here are my questions

    Do you think its worth it to join CK5?
    Any clubs here in FL?
    If you have some 10 bolt axles shaft, LMK
    If you got a dana44 or other entire axle assemblys for sale and are in florida, LMK
    If you live here in FL, let me know where you get your stuff!

    Thanks guys, sorry about the boring rambling post, but i appreciate and replys

    Where in florida do you live? I grew up there and just moved to CO 3 years ago.
    I grew up in leesburg and went to school in Gainesville. Let me feed the mouse in my head and maybe I can think of some places I used to get stuff from. The north central florida area is the best place, lots of rednecks there....:D

    Hi from florida

    Call these guys they have a 3.73 Axle M and K Used Auto, Inc. USA-FL(Orange-City) 1-800-329-9880. If you are going to put a new axle on why not swap to a 60? I live in St. Cloud we have plenty of salvage yards over here in the Orlando area that have good rebuild-able parts.

    There are quite a few members in Florida (not sure about your local area though). If you go to the Southeastern Forum you can search for "Florida" and find a couple of roll call type threads with members posting up where they are.

    Well if i can find a dana 60 sure...but again, if its not in FL, its like $300 to ship here and most parts im looking at aren't even half that.


    I probally will join here, kinda makes me mad that nobody has there emails addys share tho, so i can talk to anyone... just make me think so, $25 a pop and my favorite site camaroz28.com has nearly 18,000 members.... thats alot of money. and that ALOT more then it cost to run this site. does ck5.com sell stock??

    I'm about 90 miles south of Tampa on the west coast of FL. I get most of the parts I need shipped from out of state. There are some local scrap yards but you have too get out and do some leg work to find what you need. I've relocated from the Northeast.

    There are lots of members in Florida or close to the line. I've got two sets of 10 bolts to get rid of. The members on CK5 are worth way more than $25 a year. Sign up today and enjoy your stay. :xmas:
