Dana 44 and 33"s tires you thinking? For one, i like my gearing. The overlap cam and the low gearing complement eachother very well, i would like to be low as much as i can stand . The main thing im going for with the bigger knuckles is the bigger spindles and brakes and the added stability to keep me tracking straight!

I haven’t gotten to the front yet due to a lack of decision. I really want to put another truetrac up front, but apparently I can’t get one? Someone on here has one... unclemeat?

I think if settle with a selectable locker like an ARB I would be happier. I like the idea of being able to go from open to locked’ in the front. They're just so expensive haha.

I figured i'd update this a little bit.

I got my front gears in finally, its GREAT having 4wheel drive (for the first time in MONTHS.) I had to go open, originally i had an aussie locker lined up which was sent to me for testing (from Unfortunaltly, their model they were trying to use for the 91-94 explorers was too large for the carrier. So im open for now!

Gotta love some mud mogals. You would think thats some kind of dirt-bike track, in actuality, thats how the clay naturally erodes around us.
