stx4wheeler said:i talked to a guy that has built 4 or 5 rockwell buggy truggy vehicles a couple weeks ago at our off road event. He said that he wouldnt waste time with a detroit in them. he was saying like there is 2 in. or so of slop in the gears stock, and once the detroit was installed it was closer to 3 inches of slop. He had them in his the first buggy he built and broke lots of shafts cause of the slop he thought. Now he said he jsut gets them as tight as possible and welds the crap out of them and hasnt had the same type of problems.
ocala4sale.com is where i found the front and rear set for the price i posted. chuck's trucks down in sanford has them rebuilt for a little bit more. his shop specializes in putting rocks under all sorts of trucks from nissan hardbodys to super dutysdogonmut said:Please post the contact info of those sources.
I don't want to start a pissing match but i think (know) these prices are way high. How could anyone afford to do Rockwells at these prices? I paid $225 for my rear rockwell and then sold the tires and wheels for $200. For another $1000 i can put discs on both ends and rebuild it. Use a pinion brake and save $600-$800. If you've got the money there's always someone waiting to rip you off. Check these guys too www.chuckstrucks.net www.usa6x6.comdogonmut said:Huh?
