    okay im on the edge for these two, i already have onboard air, i was talking with the guy at ecgs and i got a quote for 2k to put lock rites in the front and rear, however im gonna call back tomorrow and see how much installing the gears and arbs would be

    i foun 2 arb lockers one for 805 even the other for 750

    i dont know how much lock rites are, but ive also heard negative things about them

    how would a lock rite in the rear and arb in the front be

    or both arb

    or both lock rite, i got a bit more saving to do so i need a vote to throw me over the edge


    crap forgot to add poll anyway to go back and do it?


    (fyi will be on a SASed taco not IFS, thats why im locking fronts too)

    ARB has always been a very reputable manufacturer. Your axle will always break before the locker, and I think that says alot. With that being said, Id rather spend the money correctly the first time and get the best, ARB

    Also, you may get better answers asking this question on TTORA which is geared toward these types of modifications. They have a whole section on SAS

    its a waggy 44, the 2k was for regearing to a 4.88 gear aswell. im gonna see if theyll let me work with them for my senior project given that the school approves it and theyre okay and maybe try to work something out idk,

    ive heard the lock rights can break and wear easier though, that was my main concern, also i dont wanna bind anything on the road

    i was thinking of putting 37's but no higher,

    i forgot about the locking hubs, wayy different than the taco is now (are they always locked as stock?)

    do you think a lock rite in the front and arb for the rear would be a good set up?

    i might go down to a 35, do you know what gears are good for a 35" tire? do you think 36" would be okay?
