Stripped the front axle of it's gears today and shipped em off for warranty approval. I hope they cover them.
So here is my plan, may change, but as of right now, I am picking up a FW HP D44 tomorrow. I am thinking of just leaving it full width and removing the spacers I have in the front, so I will be about 1" or so wider in the front than I am in the rear.
Only issues right now, I need a new carrier for the HP gears, they don't sell thick cut gears for HP to correct like the LP. ~$65
Need to buy HP 4.88 gears ~$178 for yukons
I need to buy 6 weld in bungs for steering and track bar. ~$44
I need to fab a new track bar mount for the axle and new longer track bar, drag link and tierod....so 10' of DOM ~$60
then maybe one chromo long side shaft ~$130
So a total of about ~$477 then shipping.
SO would it be worth putting the money into the HP or just leave the LP, replace the gears, if not warrantied, ~$220 then just run it and save for my 1 ton rig?
what do ya all think??
