    Hopefully th tolerances are much tighter on the spindles. A probably just as much shop time for the spindles as there is on the bumper.

    Gussets are $40. Seems a lot of folks who beat on their stuff have good luck with those.


    I dunno. I make jet engine parts with way more machine time and weld labor that end up being less, and my company is expensive. Just seems like a tall price

    I recently ripped all my CDs/ transferred all my possibly questionability aquired music from college onto a USB the size of a dime too. It's hubdreds of hours of music, and there's still space left. It was like $35 for a 64gig tiny ass little USB drive that I plugged into the rear of my new headunit, and now literally all my music is right on my car stereo .

    They're new, they also have the name attached. Fully milled hub assembly mounting area, so you have set up time, tooling, multiple fixtures, run time, stock cost, probably heat treat, there has to be a pretty tight true position for the hub assembly bore and bolt hole pattern for the hub assembly and I'm sure, if they did it right, the bore for the hub assembly is tight and held at MAYBE +/-.0005". The O-ring groove and dust seal groove are pretty tight as well. Just some thought behind it as to why the price. The icon milled aluminum UCAs don't use heat treat and the tightest thing on it is a press fit delta joint or uniball, which would probably be +/-.0002", and the bushing holes have to line up with each other, but not as tight of a tolerance on the hole size as the delta joint/uniball hole. Plus they have been out for awhile now, they use to be a bit more when they first came out, I think over $1k

    I think it's just a sales tactic to get people to buy into LT once they see the cost . Haha oh well.

    Yeah I know what you mean about the machining side. Ours is inco, 5 ports at least +/- .005" as it accepts fuel tubes that Has to pass a ball check. Has a full blown clover pattern, indexing ridges to seat the tubes properly, and 4 more holes for mounting. Has an insane surface finish due to it being a flange. Plus welding . Plus x-ray. Plus fpi. Plus hydro, polishing, marking...ect. ...and it's a main jet engine component. Guess it's just a bit of sticker shock . Haha. I'm sure specifically for the most rugged.



    Btw, everyone ready for 12* Tomorrow? Fishing winni first thing in the AM :) Screenshot_20190110-221125.jpg

    Yea definitely could be. It's like RCV, the stock length CV axles are only like $200 less than LT CV axles from them

    Thanks! Definitely happy with it so far, haven't put many miles on it, but sounds good and no drone driving around town really.
