    You'll probably pay a grand at least by the time you get a detroit(need a carrier), gears, inner axles, ouers, hubs, knuckles, brakes, rotors, and all the bearings you need. A lot of that stuff people replace anyway and you can get the best stuff right off the bat, like 35 spline outers, detroit, dedenbear knuckles.

    if your going to build your own for some hardcore Competitive junk, no. I've heard all those knuckles and stuff get expensive. I'd call around and find out how much factory knucles, and spindles, rotors, etc. cost.

    I think it'll be close. at the same time, if you WANT to add all that junk, it might be the way to go. you'd have a brand now D60 with Crane knucles, new cro-mo axles and any locker you want as your putting your 5.13's in.

    Come awn, you knew i'd get the 5.13 reference in /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
