I am right down the street from spidertrax I can go by there and give them your credit card and pick out your axle for you. :)

The RockJock 70 is almost ready for production...just sayin':D
 






Axle is supposed to ship this week:bounce:
 






Well the bouncing dude in the post above has been going for about 3 extra weeks now. I think I should delete him to give him a rest;) The axle was delivered today:D
 






Finally:D Did you go wider or stay the same width?
 












Same width.
 






:ttiwwp:



:JP:
 












If you upgrade in the future to a front d60, are you sure your 15" wheels will clear the brakes? Just something to think about since you sound like you only want to buy tires once...
 






All looks good except for the skid plate. I guess the Currie skid plate comes "pre-cracked" from the factory:rolleyes:

Yes, there will be a traction bar this time.
 


















Yes, they are some beefy perches. Best of all, they are a bit longer than normal which should also help with spring wrap.
 






A few pics from today...

What are you doing for the driver side? Moving three gas tank?:D
 






I think that's a anti-dive link for the pinion angle - no need for another side, the leaf springs still locate the axle housing.

I assume the shackle is so it can move forward and backwards with the compression and rebound of the spring but not able to move up and down which in turn eliminates or minimizes axle wrap. :) Never seen that before.
