Re: what\'s it cost to rebuild an axle?
I think you answered the question yourself. And you answered it the right way, to boot. You want to do it, so just do it, and you realize the importance of buying some good quality tools to own for the future and to do it right the 1st time. just look at guys like Jeepgod Elusive, and High 5, there are many others but these guys come to mind because they recently dove into axle swaps,(or in Jeepgod and Elusives case, are constantly into some axle swap or another). If these guys find a good deal on an axle, and a set of used gears, then "Bam",a rebuild kit and a few hours later they have an axle with the gears they need and the reat is just welding and bolting. I look at guys like Jeepgod and Elusive, high 5 and the others, and see what they are doing, and thats what I try to copy, not neccesarrily as far as designs or driving skills go, (because I have them all beat there, hehehehe), but in attitude, they do everything themselves, and that gives you the freedom to build what you want at an affordable price. I may have never started a swap in a equiptment yard, by myself, if I hadnt learned to respect, and envy what they were doing.
Just do it, If you choose to be good at it,..you will be, its just a matter of wanting to be that good.
