I reallllly like those, but with all the parts needed, the CMS and shipping, I'm at $317. And that's just for the front axle....

Sure it is a lot of money, but it is a LOT of time in the machines to make the parts.

I can't even imagine the G-Code for just the diff cover.

Those look great! To me, the price seems a tad high. But you are right about the quality, and time put in on these.

Yeah I put a set in my cart front and rear with CVDs and rear axle shafts and it was roughly $360.

Back on track. Need more pics!

Time is cheap in china. I like the looks of these housings, there's plenty of possibilities for custom axles based off of the center section.

I priced it out complete set is 308 shipped and I add my spools and over unders which would bring it to 380 shipped for completes ... Totally scale and substantially cheaper than vp

Hmm mine was without spools or gears. You must be missing something.

I am thinking it'll look more realistic with these. The curries looked a little big under it. Hopefully my curries sell quickly once I get these under it, kinda tight on cash lately but wanted them before everyone else scarfed them up.

Finally got back to these...

Installed the Grip Fab Lockers on the HD Bevel Gear and Pinion. Will be running these with a Underdrive in the rear.



Packed them with grease (Yeap, Rocksmith Gear Jelly)



It's best to set your locker set screws before you assemble the tubes. I have learned with the no slop lockers from Grip Fab is to use a Sharpie to note which set screws to tighten down so you have the shafts centered.



When installing the diff cover, don't tighten the screws down too much. Use thread lock and just tighten them enough that they are not loose.



Here is the rear axle assembled:

Next was to work on the front axle.

Make sure when you assemble this correctly. My suggestion is to download the instructions from the site (Instruction Manual), its much easier to follow.

Note the location of the Panhard mount.



These offer clockable "C's"... Sorry for no other pics of assembly. I was so excited to get them together, I thought I took pictures. Ooops.
