    Yup. I believe it will work. NON TRD's are 8.4 (although I think the ring gear actually measures 8"). There was some issues regarding mine because it's actually a TRD in 2.7, auto config.

    I ordered mine thru my local Jeep 4x4 shop and the actual Richmond gear plant where it came from is like 30 mins down the road.

    Thx for the compliments guys!

    I see your in NY. You might want to opt for an lsd or selectable locker. Things can kinda get squirelly in the snow when your locked full time. Mine is very controllable with the 2.7 however the rear end has gotten away from me a couple times when we had some snow this past winter. Might be something to think about.

    I didn't really anticipate that the paint would last actually. I just wanted to see what it would look like if it were powdercoated. I just scuffed em up a bit and used some self etching primer (5 coats) and flat black (5 coats).
    I'll see how long they last and I keep a spare can in the tool box. If they dont last that long, I may just either buy 5 new ones in black (same style) or have these powdercoated.

    I have a few new dents from a wheelin trip up north during the 4th of july that I need to have taken care of as well.

    Rims looks great. I used some high temp flat black on my hubs after I sanded off some surface rust.

    I see you have some trouble in the snow with the no-slip. How does it handle rain?

    The snow is not even really a problem. It actually performed quite well last winter when we got a good 6 inches overnite. I'm sure without the locker I would have never made it up into the addition where I live.. It's very controllable. It's not like you have a 500hp posi muscle car. You just have to be a little more aware that your light in the rear end. An aggressive at/mt will help keep it pinned to the pavement.

    Rain? I have a 2.7. It will barely break traction. Lol.
    No problems in the rain at all.

    Where it matters is in the dirt/rocks/mud/loose gravel and such.
    that's where it shines.

    Snorkel is comin today. Wont get it on till tommorow.
    Updated "better" pics of winch, painted rims, tiregate, snorkel and OME's front and rear up by friday.

    Truck really rides 100% better with the new shocks. And even the weight of the tiregate and spare sitting further back kinda evens out the lift a tad and smooths out the ride. Really impressed!
