    Keep in mind fellas I'm hoping I scratch the *#*@% out of this paint job so I can keep practicing:D I have since added 36" swampers and I have a full cage for it I have to just finish welding it and then paint more pics coming soon. Also since you guys are looking give me some advice on a inexpensive pair of lockers for my dana 44 and 12 bolt rear gonna have to keep these axles for a while until I stumble across something better

    definately a nice paint job! If you are looking to do it on the cheap and want lockers I would go with lock rites.

    Nice flames. Are those done w/ an airbrush, stencil, hand painted??? As for the cheapest lockers go, your local welding shop will do it CHEAP.... If you don't want em welded, LockRites are probably the cheapest way to go. If you are planning on running a very big tire you will break lots o front axle shafts w/ it locked up in the front.

    Thanks guys, as for your question poohbair the flames are masked and painted and the skull is a stencil that you airbrush to give you the out line then you have to render it to give it teeth and the other small details. EAT BEEF

    nice work on the graphics.:thumb:
    for lockers, it sounds like your not plannning on keeping these axles forever, so i would just get a cheap lock rite for the rear. they install without removing the diff so its fairly easy to do. i would leave the front open for now. you'll notice a big difference in traction with just the rear locked. the front you'll just risk breaking parts with 36" tires. then when your ready to swap in 1 tons(which i assume is in your future) you wont have a bunch of money tied into the 1/2 ton gear.
