YeahI saw that but no not going that route. Swapping the knuckles side to side was a deal breaker for me. There are other solutions

I'm pulling out a set of old school Longs from my mini truck front axle to put in a set of RCVs. The Longs will be for sale for $400 and I can have them at Razorback Ramble for pickup.

Edit to add: nothing wrong with Longs. Secured a gift certificate from a raffle for monies off a new set of RCVs, so decided to try them out and spend some money with a company that has supported our local club and park tremendously through the past few years.

Never been off road other than red clay driveway (can be a pain in heavy rain lol but no mud holes ever)
No rust. Southern truck.

Always ran with Mobil 1 5W30 changed every 4k paired with a Toyota D1 oil filter (just completed)

It will need a new CV as the old one boot has torn. **** I HAVE REPLACED AND DID A DRIVELINE SERVICE(FLUIDS) AGAIN ****


It does not get driven much anymore as I have a boring company vehicle to drive now. Majority of the mileage has been hwy as I work an hour away from home (75 miles one way)
These are the only 2 pictures I have on the comp at the moment. I can get more but it will be during the weekend.

The truck is in Gulfport (home) and I work in Hattiesburg. Most of the mileage is from traveling up and down Hwy 49(75 miles one way) until I got a company vehicle and then just kept it sitting at home.

The wife would take it to pick up the kiddos at the school not even 5 miles up the road just to move it.

Longs are out and ready for a new home. They look as good as when they were first put in the axle housing.

I really like the look of those wheels on a 3rd Gen, but my wife won't let me touch her truck.
