This thing is about to piss me off. The axle is out of an 07 and the further I get into it everything is different. I have to machine the outer hubs because there are no 8x200 wheels available. Now the outer hub axle flange bolt pattern is different. Center to center is 4.200 with 12mm bolts and everything else is like 3.800 and 7/16th bolts. Any ideas other than $1200 special made axles?

I'm just about ready to sell out. I have spent so much money for so little fun.

Well I broke a 10.5 axle and if you compare the two in diameter there is no difference. When I busted the one in the 10.5 it took the locker out with it. I don't want to half ass it from the start.

Yes it's out of an 07. I'm going to try it and hope it stays together.

Uh... no. I have one on my shop floor with 35 spline axles.

At least 05 and up 8X200 wheel bolt pattern.

I've already machined the hubs for 8x170 and will run the axles as they are.
