Do you have the budget for this? Even doing all the work yourself this is going to really add up. We all like to have wishlists, but what's realistic?

I can pick up a set of axles for in between 4-500 dollars. All of the supplies for the control arms will cost anywhere from 500-1000. The blank fender armor for the rear wheel well will be around 350. The tube flares will be about 200 rear, 400 front. 37s will cost about 1200. So yeah I'm probably at 3 grand of supplies. Keep in mind though axle prices here are super low. Oh and shocks. Lol

The cheapest part is getting the axles. The expensive part is building the internals right. For how I want my axles to be setup I will be spending around 4k on the front and 2k on the back. That's good lockers, shafts u joints, ball joints bearings, gears locking hubs truss, and brakes

Building axles is not really a "little bit at a time" thing. There is a lot of it that is binary. It just has to be done for them to work. Additionally, the work and cost is much lower doing it all at once, even for "optional" things.

Every single one of those estimates is off the scale on the low end. Four of my 33x12.5x15 MTRs cost $1,200, I'm not ready to think what 37's cost. Then cost of custom arms and ordering 16 JJ's or duroflex type joints... Looking at a grand there.

And where are you getting ready to go axles for $400-$500?
