I think part of his thinking is that he's not a "pro" and he doesn't want to build something and send it off and have somebody not be happy w/ it. You've never seen his work in person, so you might have high expectations, etc.

I'll put in a good word for ya, FWIW. <IMG SRC="smilies/massey.gif" border="0"></STRONG>
That's right, maybe it was a bit more to ship the TJM, I know it was less than $80 though.

I cna understand him not wanting to deal with long-distance deals. The pics of your axle on his page makes his work look really nice!

The good word is appreciated! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

<font color="yellow">When I bought my (awaiting swap) Toy axle from a guy in Maryland, it $180 to ship it to Memphis, TN! And I only paid $150 for the axle.

UPS has aweight limit of 200 lbs. for 'typical' UPS ground shipping. Mine went truck freight on a pallet. I called Geiger to see how they ship their axles...

"We take them apart."

My COMPLETE Toy axle weighed a smidgen under 260 pounds.(Torque rod, tierod & draglink, steering stabilizer bracket, and all sorts of sheeeeaht that I didn't need were included in that figure). Basically everything but the gear oil.

If you could ship just a bare housing (not even brakes or anything) you might get a D44 under that. But if you ever go to a D60 or 14 bolt, I think the axletubes weigh about that much <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"></font>
