    where'd you find a deal like that? they're hard to come by around here. i was considering one in Ill for $650, but being DRW and a welded carrier turned me off to it.

    It would be ALOT less money and aggrivation though to just keep it drw and run stock h1's........cool though either way........I am almost tempted to swap you drw hubs for my srw hubs.......got too many other things to keep me busy though.

    a friend got one from the same junk yard for $150 because it was said to be bent when they guy traded it in for another. He bought it for if nothing else the guts but had a machine shop check and housing was straght. If i remember right it had a bend tie rod and needed bearings badly.
