    I am building a mud truck with a 6.0 vortec, turbo 350 tranny, and 42 inch tsl's, and i am wanting to keep the rig setting low to the ground, pretty much so i can get stupid in it and not roll as easy, any ways i had seen these 2.5 ton face loaders around before but never really looked into them untill now. I have always just ran top loaders. But on this perticular rig the top loader will not clear. SO im thnking about going with the face loader. But i have read that the front axle is reverse cut and to keep it pasenger drop and make it turn the proper way you have to flip the chunk, which causes one axle to be a hair to long and one be a little to short, but from what i have read you can just trim the long side and it will work. Has any one ever done this? if so how did they hold up? and do you have pictures? BTW the reason of not just doing a 60 and 12 bolt is because A. these axles are super cheap, B. they already have 6.17 gears, and C. THESE AXLES ARE REALLY CHEAP LOL any help would be much appreciated! thanks
