And by no means don't take my comment negatively, we all do what makes us happy.

And you better add Differential to that list with the axles.

No worries man, I like all comments. I totally understand what you are saying. All of my initial ZL600 components and even some of my other mods outside of that are actually part of this build. I'm not paying the premium price for this upgrade. I wouldn't have done it if that were the case. I'm basically getting the additional components of the 770 package that I don't have. all of which is at at a nicely discounted rate since I'm a ZL owner. So it truly is an "upgrade". Also my playing field is a bit wider now.

Yes, I'm absolutely getting a built diff to go with this build!

I hear ya CamaroI and I do appreciate all of the kind compliments and support.

With this new chapter I am doing a few things that I've always dreamed of having done with a car, especially of this caliber. I'm really excited about it. I'm hoping my new build out will still be as,if not more,impressive.
