    Front axle HELP!! awd-4wd mash

    Oh im certain the diff is shot, the diff has NEVER serviced by previous owners. All the tires and ratios do match. I was more less wondering when i build another rear if i could make the 4wd housing work by making the actuator fork stationary. Id pull the driveshaft and cvs and leave outter cvs...

    new RLC rear bumper

    Dont really have any good shots, i did force the sides in closer to the fender by tree ramming ever so slighty. Tighter to the body looks much better

    Front axle HELP!! awd-4wd mash

    What i meant by fork was the actuator in the front axle. Being currently awd i was thinking if locking it in place to simulate the solid awd housing.

    Front axle HELP!! awd-4wd mash

    new RLC rear bumper

    Looks good! cant wait to eventually get mine! I love my front rlc bumper. As far as sag goes for those asking. I wouldnt imagine you would aquire any until you load it up with a hefty wheel and tire. For my front bumper i had NO sag hell it wsnt that far off in weight compared to stock. BUT once...

    Correct gearing for chunky 31" tires

    Didnt really read all the other posts. saw a bit of of inconsistencies. 4.56 are surely not an all around gear for 31s. You will scoot around town for sure. On the highway.... lets just say itll be terrible. 410s seems to optimal for 31s-33s. in my experience 456 is spot on for 35s. Also...

    limit straps help

    I know i dont need straps in the rear but i cant just rotate the front wheels. Just thought of somethin else, even with the whole truck up id need two jacks for the control arms two find the proper drop.

    limit straps help

    I guess jack up the front and rear, set on stands and jack the control arm up and hope for the best. Im mainly worried for some reason that if i get superlifts straps they may be to short with the tt. I figured it would be smarter to buy an exact length

    Sloped B/L question

    Alrighty, stock springs sound to be the way to go. My shackles are able to be set at stock, one or two inches so i gues thats where i can get my play. As far as my rake id love to be level but if that cant be acheived id much rather have the rear lower

    limit straps help

    I guess my trouble with figuring the measurement out is that im awd, so to jack up and spin to a compfort zone is alittle out of the question. Im not sure how much the rear sags on acceleration to equate that to the front lift. I have my bars cranked all the way to compensate for the 300lbs...

    Hiding 2 12"s Question ///// CD Player Issue

    As far as hiding them, theres not much space to, especially depending on the sub itself. As far as the hatch goes i would say no. But you could build an eclosure on the hatch. Either way it goes youll need one built, just find a location or two to put them in a stealthier box. As far as the...
