    For my D70 I got the housing for free, D60 outers and axle shafts for 300 bucks, spent 1k on locker, letís say 500 on brackets, 500 on gears/install kit, 500ish for ABS setup then my time which is becoming more valuable but at the same time I do enjoy it. So for under 4K I had a Dana 70 front axle with D60 outers, factory Chevy 60 length shafts in case I need a spare and the locker side gears can he swapped to 40 spline if I ever need to.

    As for California, I love it. The state is BEAUTIFUL, it has everything you can ever imagine from hiking, rock crawling, rocks, sand, mud, every type of scenery and terrain, mtns, snow, sun, beach, etc. I would live there forever. Honestly I had no plans to leave even though it is run in a bat**** crazy way. Work offered an opportunity to grow and it was in a place I still really like and CAers are going there but in the end we all gotta go where the money is and CA and NY are places like that.

    I know we banter back and forth and I play devilís advocate so people donít think they have to spend a ton of money to get into the SAS game. It did cost me more long term but I have the funds now that I didnít have years ago. It got me in the game.

    Your builds are great and I by no means disrespect your style or builds or funds. What I do love about off-roading is there are 183824 ways to skin a cat.

    Glad to see you getting out of California. Screwed up liberal policies, anti-business atmosphere, high taxes....you won't miss that 13% state income tax. Loved the mountains and the desert but I can visit anytime I want and not have to pay the California tab for living there. I am more than happy to drive to Moab to wheel rather than live in Cali. Katemcy Rocks and K2 offer as good a rock crawling adventure as I need. Even Marble Falls has a few trails that will keep you excited. Growing up has its challenges, as you will learn. The good thing is that the higher income offsets a lot of those challenges. The bad news is that you lose much of your time to enjoy it. I am too driven to just sit back and do nothing or do less than my best. Until I retire completely my days/years will be full. I do have a plan/date set and once I quit working I will be on the sidelines for good and then I will be wearing out the trails around the country, hunting all over the country and cashing dividend checks.

    Can't wait to wheel with you again Chris. Pritchett Canyon has our name on it.

    I had to buy an RV to make traveling easier.
    The problem is with in 2hr radius we have ~30 mil people
    So business is great but living is crowded.
    I need to find someplace like OC to move.

    ...Screwed up liberal policies, anti-business atmosphere, high taxes....you won't miss that 13% state income tax.

    Ha, ha. Those are great bar-stool comments to throw out and look 'cool', but at the same time incredibly ignorant given the overall economic metrics. Even though I don't live anywhere near CA they lead in so many economic and lifestyle metrics... Compare it to low wage, low tax, low education ...low re-investment states. But to each is own. Carry on brutha!!

    Nice D70 work BTW

    Well Iíve been here for for ~30 years now. I canít comment on any other place but CA only got a lot more expensive and crowded. Plus our ďleadersĒ are transitioning into socialism bordering with communism.
    At same time they are taxing crap load out of
    of multimillionaires and that is ~30% of CA budget.
    If those guys move CA will collapse in few years.

    Despite social status, political views, income, axle preferences, or favorite beer, I think I can speak for everyone on one topic.

    Please post more pics!

    I lived in Cali for 20 years and ran a $400,000,000.00 a year company. I think I am fairly well educated on California business environment, taxes, education, etc. We used to have over 500 employees in California. There are 3 now. Guess why? High taxes, falling educational environment, poor business environment with no real hope for improvement. We transferred a couple in from Texas to Irvine, CA. Their daughter spent most of the first year she was there waiting for the local curriculum to catch to where she was in Houston, TX. Ever heard of the " dance of the lemons ". If not you have no idea about California public schools.
