    well thanks to many dudes on here for making me think clearer today. well since i notice it would be better with less wheel more tire, but i got some trouble with lockers n all that. exactly which powertrax locker should i get to help me? and is there anything more that i could do to help my truck function almost like a 4x4 without the conversion?

    There is only one for your truck. Tires and airing down will also help a lot and a lift will help a bit. That is really it. The best thing would be some offroad lessons.

    it shows me either the lockright or the no slip so i dont know the one for me? oh ok, yeah the lift is gonna be done quick this next pay check. good that actually saves me from spending 6000. lol went from 6000 to maybe 2000 or so now. lol

    depends on the type of offroading you want to do. 31s might be fine on your stock gears.

    if you plan on any "aggressive" offroading you should consider 4.10 gears and a select-able locker like an ARB

    I thought they only made one or the other for the "8.4" axle. I never really looked into it.:D

    ARB doesn't stand for anything.

    Yes it would.

    But if op is going to regear why not do it right the first time and go with ARB.
