    I am starting to lean more towards that one than the TG one. I'll order one up for you too if you wanna order me some a dual case setup :cool:

    Drove it to work for the first time. 25 miles up the mountain and I was struggling in 3rd and 4th the whole way :laugh:. Probably won't make that drive again until I regear. Which reminds me I need to over gear fo sho. Other than that it did great. I also realized how much I would love a hi-steer :rofl:

    I haven't regretted it anyway. No more downshifting on the hills on the highway. However, I did do quite a few other things all at once so it's not all the header.

    I could not go over 60 mph on the highway with stock gears and 33's. I regeared to 5.29's with 35's and it is awesome. Also, yes you would love hi-steer. It is a huge improvement over the factory push-pull crap.

    Looks good! Did it come with a new heat shield? I didn't see one listed...

    After doing some more research, I might stay with the Iron Man lift and do 35's. I need to do more searching about gears and lockers because I can't decide between a selectable locker or a lunch box style locker. Hi-steer has moved higher up on the to-do list.

    The Spartan style locker makes a bunch of racket, at times I thought the ass end of the truck exploded. Move mine to the front and welded the rear. Liking it much better now.

    :laugh:

    I do not think I want to do anything like that because I still wanna mall crawl, and I have no resources to turn it into a trail queen, nor do I want to with this rig. It would be a lot more cost efficient to do what you did though. If I find some donor doors, would you be willing to cut em up for me and put in a swanky cup holder? Cause dat would be da dopest :cool:

    If u trying to swag at the mall I would go against the lunchbox lockers. Unless you want everyone to look and wonder what the hell just exploded. I didn't really care I just didn't want a welded diff up front.

    Yeah I could do that for a nominal fee. :D

    Damn didn't even realize.

    Alright. After I get my exhaust straightened out, I am thinking about doing wheels/tires/gears and hopefully a rear locker all at the same time. Leaning towards 35's on 15's and 5.29's.
