    I have been installing them with the flat part of the slug inwards. I keep the small part with the lip on the outside. I assume its there so that you can use a puller in it if you need to. The slug is splined the whole way through so I don't uderstand how you can say they won't fully engage the axle splines if installed incorrectly. Any thoughts?


    Also, thanks for the replies on the shocks. I'll probably swap them around next weekend when I pull the body lift.

    Edit: Ok I guess you mean spline engagement on the hub, not the axle shaft. Am I correct?

    Got the Ex some new shoes this weekend, 38.5" Super Swamper SXs :D

    They will get put on next weekend. These things are pretty beefy, so I don't think I'll have to worry about getting a hole in 2 different sidewalls again the next time I go out.

    For real??? Well whatever they are, they have got to do better than what I have now.

    Interco Site, "The Super Swamper TSL/SX was designed for extremely tough off road conditions where sidewall strength and protection is needed to withstand the severe scuffing from running in ruts and snagging roots and rocks. This tire has a strong nylon or polyester bias ply body with dual belts under the tread and wrap-a-round lugs. The sidewall lugs not only protect the sidewall but also provide extra traction when climbing out of ruts."

    Did they lie to me?? I'm not too worried, I think your just jealous.

    I got them from a guy I found on Pirate. I was in western PA this weekend so I swung by and picked them up. Lots of meat left on them, no rock rash and an awesome price.

    Sounds about right. The SSR has a 2 ply sidewall, but most of their other tires including the SX has a 4 or 6 ply sidewall.

    Sorry abought the late reply on the hubs. I cant remember right off which splines it was inner or outer I think outer to hubs. It has been probably 6 or 7 years at liest since I saw this. The hubs were put in backwords at a brake job and the guy ran it like thet untill the next hunting season, when he got stuck and realized the front wheels werent pulling. One of my co-workers was working on it at the time. He flipped the lockouts around and it went back to work. That was my expierience with it. These had the np-203 full time transfer case which is typicly concidered junk. The cool thing is the range box is seperate from the x-fer case and can be used for a np203/np205 doubler. If i can find one from a Ford mine may become np203/np203/np205 when I do my sas.:thumbsup: Can you say crawl ratio of 200:1:eek::confused:

    I got my new tires on, trimmed my rear fenders and this happened..

    [​IMG]

    I was bouncing when it happened, so that along with my driveshaft being too long may have been my problem. I took another inch and a half out of it and then I went back out.

    Decided I'm going down to a 1" BL when I get the time. Also need to figure out a new wheel backspacing that will work with the bead locks. I'm thinking 3 - 3.5. I keep forgetting to measure what I have right now so I'm not sure how much I need to change it. All I know is I don't get too far before I'm rubbing the RAs
