Re: axle upgrade.
Thanks guys! That is what I am going to do. When you say "weld the eyeholes only", do you mean the circles on the end of each tube? I am glad you said that because I had planned on welding all the way around. That is my one true flaw: MORE IS ALWAYS BETTER!!! I cant begin to tell you how many bolts I have broken due to this philosophy. I saw where I get Superior axles and a Detroit for $729.00. Then I will weld the tubes and truss them and I should be set(right?). I know this leaves the crappy front end but, I'll cross that bridge when I get there (in the middle of nowhere, I am sure). I have one more question. The front end has the steering box on it. I am in current need of a new one. Is the Waggie box the same piece of crap I am already using? I wanted to thank everyone for their patience with me. This is my first time dealing with the axle situation. After reading all of the theories, it did not click until I started. Finally, thanks for not calling me an idiot, Brian. God knows you must have been thinking it!!!! Btw, thanks for the words of encouragement, Jeepgod. Coming from you I feel much better about my 20. Thanks, Chad
