    Just when I thought you guys couldn\'t get any cooler! Thanks MIKE (MJF)

    I'm stittin' at work today around 3 or 4 and I open up CK5. I got two PMs:
    </font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
    Thought about you when I saw this. I am gonna try to call the guy to see if he has any 3/4 ton axles.

    http://www.craigslist.org/sfo/pen/car/8086312.html

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Second one:
    </font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
    Well as long as the ad I sent you earlier isn't a scam, I think I got you a set of 3/4 ton axles w/4.10's.

    I'll see if teh guy emails me back &amp; I'll go pick them up after work.

    Mike

    [/ QUOTE ]

    I replied and didn't hear anything back so I just left him my number.
    6:00 rolls around and he calls to tell me that I can pick the 14bolt and D44. Even offered to deliver them. He picked them up from Daly City /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif!

    Just wanted to share this with you all /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif.
    So now in my garage, I have a set of 3/4 ton axles, drum to drum, and disc to disc, with 4:10s /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    Thanks again Mike!!

    OH yeah, I haven't measured it up yet but both axles are in pretty good condition. Little rust bit of rust but you can still see most of the paint.

    Re: Just when I thought you guys couldn\'t get any cooler! Thanks MIKE (MJF)

    You guys don't even know how much of a fluke that was. First off, I hadn't gone to craigs list in a at least a week. Second, I just happened to catch the ad 5 or so minutes after it was posted. Third, I have had ny wife's truck parked here at work for 3 months &amp; I never bring a set of keys to it. It just so happened that I had the keys yesterday. If I would have had to go home &amp; get another truck, I probably would not have made it in time.

    So I leave work 30 minutes early, driving 80 in a truck that hasn't been driven in 3 months &amp; needs new ball joints. I made it from Sunnyvale to Daly city in record time. The guy had told me to bring a friend because he hurt his back &amp; couldn't help lift them, but I went alone, determined I was gonna get these things loaded no matter what. Luckily, one of the sons was there to help me.

    So for a tank of gas &amp; the fifteen dollars I had in my pocket I gave the kid for helping me, Chris has a 3/4 ton setup. It was a good day /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I like to /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif out where I can. It's like I said in another thread where everyone was bad mouthing each other, I think of this group as a group of friends.

    I haven't met everyone yet, but most everyone seems pretty cool. Except for that Budda Ray guy &amp; his sheep. It's just plain wrong that he won't share /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif. Greedy bastard.

    I'm not getting out of wheelin. I'm just shifting my focus a little. At first I was thinking I could take a K5, throw on a few parts, &amp; hit the rubicon. I'm now gonna try to build a rig that I really like &amp; take it out for some light wheelin. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
