I was doing a search on Google and came across this post. A little late, huh?
Anyway the price is not a joke. I do not use junk, either. All of the components are brand name - Yukon gears and install kit, OX locker (new style of course), Alloy USA axles, Spicer diff cover (obviously not if you have an OX locker) and u bolt style pinion yoke, etc. Unlike others, mine comes with a 70" cable for that price. I also include new oil seal retaining plates and top lock nuts.
When I setup my gears, I go completely off of pattern. I do not 'care' about pinion depth. A perfect pattern will mean a perfect pinion depth and backlash adjustment. No sense in chasing your tail to get them setup correclty with a machine. I use the largest shim possible everywhere. I see a lot of the smaller shims fracture and then you lose your diff settings and have problems with the diff later. On the carrier preload, I am not afraid to put a butt load of preload in there. I have never seen a carrier bearing burn up from too much preload. Doing this also pre loads the case and all but stops pinion deflection.
I build between 3 and 8 of these a month. I have 2 that I'm working on right now, but housings are on backorder. I hope to have them tomorrow. I had a guy from the sand box order one for a Moab tirp this weekend. Originally we had lots of time to put it together (nearly 4 weeks), but Jeep kept on moving the back order date. By 10/1, I realized I wasn't going to be getting the housing from Jeep and started making lots of phone calls. I finally found one over by Seattle for $150 more than my cost (even more than Jeep retail!). I spent the day and drove over and picked it up. I ate the cost and did not pass it on to my customer. I knew in the beginning how much this trip meant to him and his wife, so I did whatever I could to get it to him before. He should be back home today. The axle mad it in town this last wekeend and is ready to be delivered. It might have been delivered today, I haven't checked the tracking number since this morning.
Bottom line, quality is good. Customer service is top notch. Price is pretty dang good. What do you have to loose?
You can also search around the boards as I'm pretty well known for my 8.8 assemblies. And I can also do 35 spline Rock Jock HPD60's for about $1k more
Anyway, any questions just ask!!!!
Here are some pictures of his axle... The box has the cable, shifter, manuals, stickers and u bolts.
