    Well, tomorrow will be a busy day for my grandpa and i. Since Santa was good to me this year he hooked me up with a whole bunch goods.

    The parts consided of a GLO Diamond Plate Diff cover, 5.13 thick gears, and a master install kit. I went in to my dad's work and spent some time sandblasting and painting the diff cover an aluminum look. The diff cover has a cool drain plug located in the diff ring.. I thought it was a very inovative add on to the cover..

    Now, before i go all out on this install and get everything ready, i had a couple of questions for the CK5 family. Since this is my first time ever working on a 14ff, i just wanted to make sure that i had the right carrier for the gears.. if not.. then i will have to put off the build until i can get the right one. Since the gears are 5.13 thick gears, i need a 4.10 and down carrier.. so.. is this a 4.10 and down gov-loc??

    A here is a little teaser pic of what the axle will look like..hopefully it will turn out looking as good as the dana 60..
