    Just got back from a small trip to Moab. Had a blast, got cold and broke some things.

    I broke a birfield, Mike (in the huge 4Runner) stripped the splines on the short side of a 80 axle and the T100 broke a front axle. Otherwise fun.

    See pictures and some evidence on why I say you can not fit 315's with standard OME and a couple of packers. I have 5" of lift and still rub. See http://www.sleeoffroad.com/trails/EJS2003/P4190017.jpg

    10" wheels with 3.25" back spacing. Didn't take the ShortBus since it was not done yet. The fridge is not mounted yet. :beer:

    Also did not want to break it and have to fix it this week. Now I broke the other one and have to fix that.

    Christo,
    Just out of curiosity were those the cv unlimiteds?
    And was it the stubby or long side?

    Moralien,

    it was the short side, Toyota birfield with 110k miles on it. Broke the cage inside the birfield.
