The install of the axle housings will be identical TO THIS <---- this is a link


From the FAQ <---- this is a link



The rear cable will be long, the front may work without mods...



Will they hold up?


Not too many folks out here beating on that combination with bigger tires…

Install them and let us know how well it works.




Good luck!

The rear cable will not be too long, it will be too short. The 60 cable terminate under the floor about the back of the seat and go through a complex linkage system. The 70 cables are a lot longer and go to the bottom of the dash.

38s and cable lockers, not an issue. The locking mechanism is up to much more than that. The shafts will fail long before the locker does.
