I know i read a few months ago of someone on here that showed a couple pics of aluminum transaxles that he had built for a couple of pullers.
I am looking into what it would cost to get one built or should i just buy all the parts from mwsc and build it myself.
Obviously $1000 for just the 2 cases is a big jump but if i have another $1000 into hardend shafts and gears and a fine spline carrier and axles. What would be the cost of just paying someone to just build one for me?

I put together the newer fine spline diff with the 30 mm axles, you have to cut one side housing down. and i use the 2 peice fine spline diff with the older ring gear. seem to hold up well.
