    You need a fair bit of lift to be able to fully articulate a rockwell under a K5, the top loader of the diff easily can come into contact with the cossmembers/gas tank.

    Ususally uld military vehiles are the cheapest way to get them, are you looking for rebuilt, or just a regular rockwell?

    Do a search on USA 6x6 if you're curious as to how he treats his customers.

    I dont know if you consider selling them for way more than they are worth scamming, but thats what he does. I also read one post of Pirate4x4 where he sandblasted an axle and the buyer discovered the pumpkin was full of sand,.

    well, like i said, I dunno about his services, but if he rebuilds the axles, then they should cost more than a 30-year old crusty military axle thats been layin in a yard for 10 years. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif at any rate, I wouldnt buy nothin from a guy that sells weakly welded wheels on which the buyers LIFE depends on... i was just askin if his scammedness (Im sure thats a word) was limited to wheels or not. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
