    1 Inch Body lift?

    Thanks Thanks. I found em. Other than finding longer bolts was there anything else you had to get. I figure I will have to adjust my fan shroud slightly but other than that...anything else. Thanks again

    1 Inch Body lift?

    Does anyone know of a company that makes 1 inch body lifts for X's. If not, is there another application such as ranger 1 inch body lifts that may work.

    need help/what kind of locker to buy???

    i guess its all preference and what it is you actually do with your Ex. i wouldnt recommend the no-slip just because its more like just a plain LSD. I tend to do a little more climbing up mountains with little traction and mud holes and having the peace of mind of both wheels being locked is...

    need help/what kind of locker to buy???

    lockers lockers are always good. I have a lockright by powertracks. ran about 260 from randys ring and pinion. since you have an open carrier already you will not have to reset up your gears. the entire process would prolly take you about 3 hours to install. and thats even if youve never...
