based on the front (complete with steering), and the ff rear, that took three of us to pull out of the bed of my pickup, I would say way too much.

who built it? my rear only weighs 250 lbs.

of course i am using gun drilled axles, aluminum hubs, and a cromo spool and cromo .250 tubes. oh ya disk brakes and aluminum calipers with willwood racing vented rotors.

Not really bragging but..

I could pick up the Dana rear or front(w/out hubs/rotors) very easily. Id say they were maybe 250-300lbs. I was running on pure adrenalin then tho, trying to finish up my project sooo....

Looks great. Piece of art rather than axle. What are you going to run up front?

I dig the beautiful work... but I got a question, too.

It looks, from the pics, that you've got some giant wheel bearings. But they're really close (1.5") to each other? The stock (I'm assuming that's a D60 spindle) bearings are smaller, granted, but they're also much farther apart, so they spread the load more.

I know I've seen some problems with Ford TTB front ends (I know this is much burlier, but still) where the wheel bearings are big enough for the load, but they're so close together that they get trashed fast by side loading anyway.

So, question is, was that even a concern here, or is it pretty much a given that those giant wheel bearings will take care of it?

I'm definitely jealous... no way I could afford that front end, but it sure is pretty.

Sick, that's all I can say.

Did the axle cost it's weight in gold?
