try Steve Gerstner at Differential Engineering in Winter Haven, Fl. He will build whatever combo D60 you could imagine, prices are competitive,,heck even better than most! :jump: . Link is www.differentialeng.com
Steve is a great guy and a pleasure to do bussiness with. Not too far, Winter Haven is near Lakeland. Call him and tell him that Rob from Highway Tire rec him. He'll def take care of you. I bought my front Rockwell from him, great price and excellent service.
PS....he specializes in Dana axles, he also builds a killer 9"
Real Jeeps are built not bought

BigUgly,

Try Ruben4x4 for gears and brakes. He is local and might be able to put that setup together. If you have the housing even better.

Are you going full width or do you plan to cut it down? :amazed:

1BDYJ,
The info that you posted on Differential Engineering could come in handy. Can you please make a post with all the info under the "4x4" shop section so it does not get lost within this thread. Thanks.
