It's hard to tell cause the pictures are so small but that 9" axle against the wall looks like it might have a nodular 3rd member which is worth some money if you could pick that thing up cheap! Factory nodular 3rd's are pretty hard to find and in demand. You'd have to do a little research to verify if the guy will even part with it but if that is what I think it is there's some cash sitting there to someone in the know...

Hi guiz! Long time stalker, first time writer. I am not from Vegas, but I know some peoples who are. Also, I gamble and drink a lot, so that makes sense.

I've wheeled in Red Rock, and parts of Northern Las Vegas. Not my rig, because I don't have a rig, I have a stock pile of poop.

You are very welcome for knowing me. Play your cards right and my might come out there and order you a free drink at the craps table.

Welcome to the thread...I've seen you before somewhere, but I just can't pin point where.... hope to see you out here some time! Once it cools off a bit, I'll be trying to get out a bit more and would like to put a face to the name!

http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/pts/3163334622.html
Those were the ones i had mentioned earlier. i dunno if i like the look of them. $350 is a bit high, and loo at the pics, the front looks to have been SOA'd as it has ghetto looking perches welded on, and the back had the perches moved inboard. nothing a few minutes with a grinder couldnt fix, but still...that means somebodys been monkeying around with them.

LOL, I'm mostly giving you crap in good fun but damn you're a picky axle buyer!!! Are you expecting to find brand new off the shelf axles in someone's garage for like $23 and a 6 pack of coors or what?

We paid a decent chunk of money for this paper weight with a bajillion un-needed brackets on it.



That took figgen who knows how many umpteen hours of my labor to cut off and smooth out to get to this stage where I can start fitting the truss to go on it.





That's why I'm laughing and giving you crap... You're buying used axles, what are you expecting?

I bought this bastard for my truck years ago, fresh oxy/acy torch markings and all. I paid substantially more then you're looking at taking a chance that it was in good usable shape. It worked out just fine and I picked up about $2500 worth of axle for about half the cost.

Public school math, I only counted half a trillion.

Side story cause nobody cares... That currie axle with all the brackets I posted above that I cut it all off of was out of this FJ.



















Sweet ride right... Well the guy that built that thing up like that and dumped a crap ton of money into it sold it for like $40K a few years back. The new owner took it immediately to the shop and completely cut it up! Pulled the front and rear suspension for fully custom hand made one off built stuff which is how we got the axle, he's swapped it out for a hand fabbed massive housing. He pulled the motor and is swapping in a LS V8. Rear floor is completely cut out and the rear frame is completely cut off and they're doing almost a full tube chassis back half on it with true linked suspension.

It's seriously a case of someone having way too much money. He could've started with a cheap stock rig and had the same end result for probably $25K less but instead bought this beast and pretty much tossed everything cool on it in the trash and started over! Insane yo!

Could have anything to do with the ladies achievements yesterday? Possibly a little less stress in the household...

I have been having a crap day. Got up and by the time I got to work, I had 5 missed calls on my cell. I called back only to find out that a friend of mine committed suicide this morning. He hadn't really been the same since his second trip to the sandbox a few years ago. Before he was always quick to a smile, always laughing. When he came back he was a completely different person. Weird thing is that I am more pissed off at him than I am saddened.

Sorry to hear man. I've had 2 friends kill themselves this year and I felt the same, mad not sad. Neither were military, but you never really know what people are dealing with inside.

I hope that your day gets better in some small way.
