So, I've got 2 more questions for you guys.
Should I scrap the 8.8 and look for a dana 44? (seems like in the end that's gonna cost more)
How do you guys feel about the Aussie lockers? Seems like a good bang for the buck. I like to ride wooded trails, mud and play around on some small rocks. I'm not looking to build a rock crawler or anything.
Thanks for the advice
Did you backhand him and walk out?!?! Loads of Jeepers are running them. He doesn't know what he's talking about.
I never had any issues with my 8.8 and it was on 35's and behind a moderately built Chevy 355.
I don't know about the Aussie lockers. I don't have any first hand experience with them.
