I know your not an unsafe idiot Jim and I hope you'd know that I would never infer that. I believe most high HP rig owners aren't either, it wasn't meant as a blanket statement. The above was specifically meant toward the hammer down guys (of any engine displacement) that consistantly place lives, property and the sport at risk via their negligence. The ones that make no effort on having, or learning, skill or finesse; so they build to compensate for it.


Orig. cost of my front 44:
Junkyard Scout 44 .................$150
Used 4:88's from postal jeep.....$40
Used Detroit locker ................$300
Narrowed housing at home ......$0.00
Cut/respline long side .............$65.00
Re-use all brakes bearings .......$0.00
Total....................................$555

Sometimes I also find myself getting sucked into the hype of overbuilding. I put all ChroMo shafts in when I put a 'soft' locker in the front, even though the other shafts lasted years with an old school locker.

Can't say the 60's for the CJ8 are as cost effective
