    that is one sexy looking K5!! It looks just like mine /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif... Wes, it took alot more effort than just throwing a cover on there, you are looking at years of research and development and countless hours of machining and fabrication /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Its the weld on retainer that takes the most time. Here you can see the progress of the install just before we added the included nylon bolts. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif . Its a good thing we already had a 12 bolt front end or this could have been messy!

    the new Dodge 2500s come with a 14 bolt front axle... its not the same as our famed 14 bolt but it is a 14 bolt. The guys at CFS were acting like it was godly just cause its a 14 bolt, thats like saying a Dana 60 sucks cause its a 10 bolt.

    I paid the $28.37 extra and PepBoys did the install... /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
    still don't know about only the front tires having chrome covers on them /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif, sucks that they don't give you all four covers... /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
    guess it's there way of getting you for more money /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    There is a blue cherokee in the KC4WDA club that has one from WMS too.
     
  15. I think they are prolly like the DANA 80 front end I saw at last years Jamboree. The guy said it cost too damn much and it will never oil or wear right so nothing but short trips and whos knows how long the R&P will last not meshing right.
