Go to other forums where people actually wheel their rigs and you'll see that those 8" e-locked axles just can't take the abuse of the 8.4

They eat through ring gears like no other.

Yea I am running 33's....... well a 305/70/16 but will be going to a 285 so regear at the same time I do my lokcer or lockers is a must.

I had a LockRite in my Tacoma and it worked perfect. I loved it. It really made a difference offroad and didn't change the on-road manners too much. Hell, half the time I thought it was broken because I couldn't feel/hear it. The '84 I have now has Detroits. I haven't taken it out wheeling yet but I'm hoping they're as good as everyone says they are.

The 84 the one that's sitting?

Or is it the new white one? Don't remember....

Keith went through a couple lockrites IIRC.

Nah the 84 is the white on. The 86 is the broked one.

I still think Keith just installed his wrong. But he still insists the 1st and 2nd gen 8.4s are different.

So your suggestion is to spend a lot of cash to replaced a system that is currently fucntional?

There is always going to be a bigger bader setup. This thread was created to expand the knowledge of more sever off road setups. Not to yell and tell people to go f'in search.

Thanks for tip my friend. Very informative.

Something to consider though for sure.

When you do an SAS, you can consider doing that or swapping in a different rear axle.

I think you're taking what I said the wrong way. I wasn't yelling or telling you to "go f'in search". I was giving you some information. You said there was no substitute for the e-locker. I was recommending a swap for a better (read stronger) setup. It's a common swap and can be done rather cheaply when compared to swapping in a Ford 9", D44, D60, etc.

Then what we have here sir is miscommunication. I was responding to lockers are great. And that I share in that notion as I too have a locker. Not making a statement that e-lockers are the best of the best.

I'll run my e-locker till it snaps and it sounds like switching to an 8.4 would be an option.

Yeah I don't see many people having problems with 1st gen axles, many members run 37s or bigger with no problems. 2nd gen axles isn't a real axle IMO. Shit's weak.

This question probably doesn't apply here but whatever haha

I'm upgrading to 35"s soon. I'm moving to WI for awhile and gonna play the wait and see game if I get stopped for tires that stick out past the fenders. If I do, I was looking at doing bushwackers for the rear which seem to be perfect for 12.50 wide tires.

I'm running 1" spacers up front. Can't decide if I should go with bushwackers up front (probably gonna stick out slightly) or go with some 4.5" Glassworks fenders. I'm kinda leaning towards Glassworks since I want to upgrade to SAS eventually and it would be easier to trim for bigger tires and still give some decent coverage.

Opinions?

Fiberglass flares are nice, but here's the difference. When you bang them up on the trail, they simply just break. They're made of fiberglass. LT guys run them because they don't see much rock time, if any at all. If going for looks, do bushwaker. If you're seriously going to build a trail rig, run just stock fenders trimmed, no fender flares. My two cents.
