A lot to do before we hit the road for KOH. A lot of parts in the mail.

I cheated a little and ordered the rear axle from Trail-gear. It came out to be $7 less than buying all the parts to build one like the front.

Hopefully is shows up a few days before it's supposed to be on the trailer.

$7 cheaper, and a LOT less labor for you.

Rear axle is scheduled to show up today. Just waiting on the orbital valve to show up to be able to finish up the front.

Working on our new DIY front flat fender kit.

Hope to see you out there. I'll pass on the 9" in the rear though.

Well that got weird....



Rear axle showed up. I'm pretty impressed with it. About $1200 for the axle, shafts, bearing pockets and seals shipped. Trail-gear had it welded and shipped within 3 days.
Hopefully have it mounted in the Roxor tonight or tomorrow night. Will need to get the wheel bearings bored out for the 35 spline shafts.

Why not just use 05+ bearing pockets in the rear?
