    I have a 2010 off road with a OME suspension and 285-75-16's. I am contemplating just changing the rear gears for now until I can save enough for the fronts. I have been looking at eastcoastgearsupply. I know that this is not ideal, I was just wanted to know if anyone else has done this? I know it is dangerous but I am the only one that drives the truck. Thanks!

    OME 881 coils with OME nitrochargers shocks up front. TC UCA's OME Dakars with extra leaf in the rear. Warn 8000 winch with 80ft custom braided synth line. Custom 60ft synth extension. All pro tube bumper, Hi-lift jack, Safari Snorkel, Wilco tiregate.
    Don't do it. I think the ratio is maybe 10% between the difference in the gears, Just save up enough for both.

    Get both. Regearing a single diff at a time would suck.
