    My new axles!!! Oh crud I am so excited. Rob (larryboy from Pirate) came over to my place and got me and we made a run out to Forward Air and got them. Loading them was a snap they used a fork lift. Unloading them was interesting to say the least considering they were 800lbs. One bent tailgate later they were out.... They are huge. I knew they were gonna be big but dang. It was all I could do to not do a dance in the loading dock at Forward Air when I saw them. Anyhow now that I got them I need some rims and to decide on a new lift and the tear down begins! WHEEEEEEEE!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    <font color="green"> Yep, those things are hell on tailgates. I bent the crap out of the gate on my S10 when we unloaded my 60. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif </font color>

    The seals &amp; bearings are all good? You're just throwing em in the way you got em?

    I just picked up my D60 on Monday from foreward air in San Francisco. The crate was 550lbs. When i got home my dad and i managed to lift the axle out from the tailgate to a dolly without hurting anything.

    Re: Guess what is sitting in my driveway?

    He replaced everything.... so it should be good to go. Too bad for me I have a $8,300 bill to pay for my Grandma from Medi-Cal. So for now it's gonna sit as I buy stuff bit by bit to do it all. I think I found some rims for $300 and then I will need to work on the lift which at this point no clue. It has hydro steer so I have more work ahead for sure.... I am so happy but at the same time my mind is spinning at what the heck am I going to do... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Oh and both axles were crated together... so that's why it weighed so much. We tried to be slick and the tail gate ate it. At least it's his works truck and he bent it back and said they won't notice... /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
