    I read on one of your posts that you have axle tech 4000 parts. I am in need of some things. Do you still have parts or have a source for them?
    Thank you,
    Erik

    part 2: My truck is currently sitting on 37" with a 6" lift and by going with the ISAS front and rear and the 365 tires, the drain plug will be sitting at approximately 16.5" with a 3/4" mounting plate bolt to the mounting plate of the ISAS for my frame to sit on. This will leave me with my current, lower frame height of 18" to 27".

    Although my truck is a 2011 Chevy dually with a duramax, the axles are twice as heavy as regular planetaries that weigh in around 2200lbs each. Any thoughts on being able to build a structure to mount the axles to the frame that will me strong enough without crushing the frame on the truck due to the weight increase?

    I appreciate any and all of your help and consideration.

    I just reviewed your Axletech build for your buggy from earlier. I must say that it is quite impressive.

    On another note, I would like to pick your brain on some Axletech 4000's.

    I am going to be building up my truck(Avatar) and running the Michelin XZL 365/85R20(45") Now, I am not going to be turning my truck into a bouncer buggy or crazy rock crawler. I still want to daily drive. I was committing in buying a pair of the 4000 both front and rear steer and link my truck but it has proven difficult in running anything other than a radius Y-link up front. Which leads me to my question.

    How about the Axletech 4000 ISAS both front and rear?

    Do you see any potential issues that my be cost prohibitive vs. solid planetary axles and having to build a link system? Also, I am going to be making custom fenders for my front since I knowhow to make custom fiberglass pieces. I will also be cutting the rear dually fender and making a custom outer as well.

    I was looking at your monster project wow your fab skills and attention to detail is amazing. I haven't looked at the entire build yet but I plan to. I was wondering if you have or know where I can get the seals for the back of the hubs for the axletechs? I saw you said you have axletech parts. I am building a truck and torn them down to remove the brakes and all but one seal came apart. Thanks

    I just looked at all of your build pictures, I know they are older but I must say, the work is outstanding. I have worked aviation for 30 years and have never seen that kind of detail from aircraft staraight from the plant, and all over the world. Youe attention to detail and finish work is the best I have ever seen by far including homebuilt aircraft. Great job.

    Hey Link, do you have any more pics of your 03' with 10k+ behind it? How does it handle it with 38s?
