Does it work at a price like that?! If so that is a steal...whether it bolts up or not lol.

I am not sure if it will bolt up or not though...hopefully someone else can help you out

it wont fit with out some work. you'll need to swap out the imput shaft to a 21 spline to mate your AX5.

Thats a hell of deal from what I have seen. If I lived closer, Id pick it up if it wouldnt fit your rig.

From the sounds of Irongrave, it'd take a little work to get it in there right.

how difficult would the input shaft swap be? do they sell kits?
