Power washed all the junk off of the section of the rear that's staying, then got it this far today.

Hey Kodiak, if you're referring to the AAM 11.5 then there are some pretty comparable features but I believe the GM Dana 80 still "takes the cake". Both axles can be had with 4" axle tubes and disc brakes, AAM having usually a larger disc. GM Dana 80 uses a 2" 37 spline axle shaft while the AAM uses a 1.56" 30 spline. Both are full floaters but use different methods of attachment. GM 80 has a splined end that slips inside the end with a retaining cap while the AAM uses a bolt on method. Dana 80 lockers usually run on the cheaper side. Both axles seem to have the same GAW rating.

Due to recent budget cuts the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off

Finally have this thing sitting on its own, now to trim it all up and make it look good. Still need to make a track bar as well.
