    It looks like the "axle" from a tractor-pull rig. The ones that use 4 or 5 engines. The have huge 20" brakes and basically no width at all because they are attached to rail cars. Plenty beefy though /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Im no axle buff pro by any means, but i found it here in ck5 on the home page, under one of the listings.Its not a pop quiz or anything, i would have made a multiple choice quiz if i was going that route /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Just something to feast your eyes on /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That's all Mark Williams stuff, primarily Drag related, but he builds parts for just about everything, very high end. I just ordered some pro race 4.88’s for the Class 8 truck and we run his spools in most everything. By the way a Chrisman rear axle for a Trophy Truck, hub to hub with brakes, will set you back almost $12,000.00. I was at Currie the other day and saw a Dana 60 High Pinion Aluminum Rock Jock front axle with all the trimmings waiting to be picked up at Will Call that was just under $12,000.00 also.
