    <font color="green"> You mean Executioner has had that argument here too?! I only recently started lurking in CK5, but I've been a regular on the ORC BBS for about 3 years and I've had words with him over there about the 12 bolt front more than once, between 2 and 3 years ago. Funny stuff... /forums/images/icons/grin.gif </font color>

    LOL, has he been spreading the 12 bolt gospel at ORC too? /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif He's a character for sure!

    Someone here got a reasonably close up pic of his front diff...D44 like we all suspected. It was almost a let down /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Bryan,

    I think you're safe, having noted Dana 44 in your initial post!

    Cool find though, esp. with the Warn hubs.
