    Stock... For now...
    ughhhh... it rains about 4:00 pm almost everyday in the summer over here. There's always some mud somewhere around me. The best thing about me getting stuck was the truck that had pulled me out was a built 7.3 Powerstroke... pulling out a tiny little 5 lugger...hahahah

    Yeah, not sure what options we have for coilovers, I haven't looked into them but I believe the options are zero (as has been already said)

    Joel probably has more experience here than me, I haven't broke stock shit like him so he obviously pushes his harder. I did break a ball joint but it was due to an encounter with a guard rail not offroading

    You can but it will lower you since 6 lugs are SOA and we're SUA. Their leaves have less arch to them



    My truck has seen some mud time, I wish I had a video/pics of the day we got caught out in the rain. the little 5 lugger took it like a champ and climbed some unbelievable shit to get out of the woods, I along with the other guys I was with was amazed.

    Do they even make an air locker that will fit a first gen 5-lug? i thought they didn't make any for our diff.

    I was out backpacking one time and a massive rainstorm came in that afternoon, the next day it was insanely muddy on the forest road we drove in on, i just kept my speed up and made it out just fine. The truck was completely brown with sticks and clumps of dirt stuck on it but i never got stuck. it was actually pretty fun

    They make one for a 7.5" front... will that one work for us?

    I'm just going with the Aussie locker eventually. Everything else people have advised me against has worked out so I'm hoping it continues haha

    An aussie locker is very tempting, especially because they are so cheap compared to other lockers, but since i DD my truck i just don't know if i want to put an auto locker in it. I wish ARB or somebody made a selectable locker for us.

    I have heard the aussie is just fine for DDing as long as you don't have to deal with snow/ice but being in the valley i don't really have to worry about that so idk maybe it would be sweet.

    How far apart are the leaf spring mounting bolts? I could measure I guess, feeling lazy.

    I keep going down to the junkyard and seeing SUA Jeeps and wondering if I couldn't use the leafs off them.

    I saw a sweet 5 lugger today at fashionsquare, the guy was building it up to be a desert runner. No long travel but new ucas coils and he said he put a stroker kit in it. But what caught my attention the most was the bed was white, cab was red, blue wrapped doors and a desert style tube bumper!

    It should fit your 5-lug but the gear ratio isn't 4.10 in that diff. He said it has stock +05 v6 gears which is 3.73 ratio. Besides he says he'll need your stock third member which in your case will have 3.13 or 3.58 which is too high for his truck.

    limited slip diff?? I'd love a selectable locker which was talked about recently above.. but nobody makes one and I DD my truck so auto lockers aren't ideal. So what about a limited slip?
