It's been a very busy month since i joined, but I finally have time to post some updates the new ride!
Would post pics but don't quite have time to figure out how to now.
In any case, it's a 2 door base sport model, 6MT with 3.21 gears, sitting on the stock 16's.
So far I've bought:
-RC 3.5' lift kit (kind of a temporary measure, looking into a LA system eventually)
-RC steering stab (single, going to exchange for a dual before the install)
-4x 35x12.5x17 Toyo open country M/T (for next summer)
-Yukon Zip lockers front and rear
-ARB heavy duty compressor+acc.
My plan now?
Install the lift, and order driveshafts to measure (either Adams or tom woods...input??)
I'd like to (meaning i won't be able to wait, and i WILL) have it re-geared to 4.88 before the winter (have the lockers installed at the same time), and I'm pretty dead-set on picking up some 35" studded duratracs to get me through the cold season.
I'd like to gusset the c's asap, and am very much leaning to the press-fit, no weld axle tubes (nitro).
Either buy or fabricate a tire carrier for the rear.
Input, particularly on the choice of driveshafts (tom woods/adams) would be more than appreciated
Also, is anybody running 35x12.5's on the 16''x7'' stock steelies?? I personally know someone who does it with BFG KO's, but would like to hear you opinions on it.
