    HOUSING, that is.
    I found one in the paper today and was wondering if this would be cost effective. How much would it be to build one up? Does anybody out there have any experience with this?

    inner axle shafts $200
    35 spline kit w/ujoints + lockouts $360
    Brake calipers no core $120
    Carrier + gearset $?
    carrier bearings set $120
    Wheel bearing hubs $400
    Rotors $200
    .... bling bling


    There's a reason Dynatrac axles cost $6500. I'ld hold out for something more complete

    It depends on if you would want tor ebuild right away.
    Say, if you wanted 4.88 w/ ARB or detroit. Then it doesn't matter if it had the guts.
    I understand many inner shafts are necked down - non necked down ones are $100 each. If you'd replace them anyways, then no big deal.
    All would be 30 spline outers - again, if you want 35's it doesn't matter if it's there.
    What you DO want is the wheel hubs and bearing caps. Without those two items, it really is a lost cause.
    My opinion, of course.
