    just kept the rear at 411, so took the front down to 410, since its a dd but the shop said that if that seams too low that come in and they'll change them both out to a higher gear for lunch to to shop and 100 :D

    thanks for the warnings and your concern but i'll take my chances. btw leafs have settled another inch, now im just 1.5 illegal after hittin trails today im pretty sure its goona go down i little more. ill trim the fenders abut after going so i dont over trim and make it look like shit, ...and in the state of utah they dont give a shit about lights and bumpers.. its frame to ground and mudflaps and fender flares.

    future mod list- exo cage, bushwacker fender flares, HID lights on my light bar, hood off tacoma hood with a scoop, single shaft rear drive line, airlockers up front so i dont have to get out to always put it in 4wd, and bumpers (try makin them look like this guys front and rear though.)

    the ARB Air Locker will lock the two axles in the differential, you will still need to manually lock your hubs at each wheel to fully engage 4x4. Only use the Arb Locker when needed for extreme terrain. 95% of the time just locking the hubs in 4x4 will be fine. Plus, you will find that when the locker is on in the front, turning will be a chore. If you hubs are not locked while shifter is in 4WD you are not actually in 4WD.

    Pricey drive flanges is the term. Poly performance sells them. :D It requires work though to put them in, and different outer stubs IIRC. 30 splines, instead of 19.

    Yeah...you need to LOCK your hubs.

    Hubs locked = front axle shafts are always turning.
    Unlocked hubs = front axle shafts are not turning.

    You can be in 4wd via the transfer case and have the aRB locked but it aint' doing shit for you if your hubs aren't locked.

    Keeping the hubs unlocked is a good idea for daily driving & such. With my jeep (GW D44 in it), if the hubs were locked and I drove it around...I'd have a slight vibration from the front axle shafts turning all the time.

    yeah that pic bugged me cause of that, its a grain shoot thingy to drop grain into train cars, it was the only un touched snow and clean place that looked good for taking pics.

    everything is working amazing, the power well it turns the tires and i havent noticed to much of a difference on mpg but actual speed, it'll still do my average speed of 75 on the freeway with rpms just near 3.5 shiftin point is near 4 at worst when i punch it. other then that i just need a longer run way to get up to speed then i used to ( almost double :( )

    So, what to you think about the 5" springs after things have settled? still too much? would the 3" be good enough for 35's ya think?

    Biggest pieces of shit ever :D Don't get auto locking hubs...stick with the Manual. The truck looks good bro! It will settle down some more trust me...A selectable locker up front is nice but even locked steering won't be that hard...nothing a little hydro assist can't help with! :) But definitely get some armor bro...a nice front bumper, some sliders, and a rear bumper!

    I think 3" would be fine hell with some modding you can fit 35's on a IFS and i just might do that with my next set of tires :D

    The 5's will settle down, you still have to break them in...plus if you ever decided to go bigger tires you won't have to cut and clearance as much. Because trust me one day you will go bigger then 35s...it happens to everyone! :D

    40's son!!! :D Plus if you still think the 5's are to big it's not that hard to take a leaf out...then the pack will break in faster, be way more flexier and if they get to soft you can always throw that leaf back in :) it's a win win dude. But trust me...with the SAS you want something nice and flexy! Give your leafs some time bro...you just got that bitch! :) Take a trip down to MOAB go play over at BFE and break her in right!

    Man sometimes I really miss Utah! :(

    correct i was... it served its purpose but looked ugly as shit but now tryin to figure out a mixture of a headache rack with spare tire holder that doesn't look bad, but doesn't cost too much.
