    BlazzinOR and thatk30guy,
    How much to build the 14 bolt FF? Did you use the detroit locker?
    How much for a D60 with an ARB?
    How much for shipping?
    Bet you can't wait to throw mud all over that new paint!

    Personally, I'm saving my money for the Westy Signature Series D60/14BFF combo. The axles come platinum coated in a felt lined solid oak box that is suitable for use as a coffee table. Did I mention the included signed and numbered certificate of authenticity, suitable for framing?

    Frank, Wes did quite the job. They look great. Congrats man. Hey is that a white Ranchero I see in the background, on the street? A neighbours? Cool. I haven't seen one of those for many moons.

    Hey Wes, Boyce won't be getting as much business. They're going to be calling you crying your taking their business away. Good job Wes, at their prices they can kiss everybodies a$$.
