    Since my truck is a DD I did not really want to go any lower with the gearing, Even though i wanted to. I almost ordered the 4.88s but am glad i stuck with the 4.56's.

    With stock gearing and 35's my firsts gear turned into 2nd gear and my 4th into a 5th. ( it was awesome on the highway, i will miss it). Now with the 4.56s in i can pull out with almost no gas and accelerate like a mad man. I top off around 60mph at 2700rpms. I could run it harder but i dont really like running for hours much above 2700rpms. the tires i am running are a true 33.5 like most. if you are running a true 35s maybe 4.88s would be better.

    As for the trail they freakin rock. climbing rocks is awsome now, no more stalling. its sweet to be able to pick tires right off the ground with out hardly any gas, although the locker helps out much with that.

    Kurt thanks for all the parts and recent hook up with recent exploded knuckle parts...

    and 2badfjs....never could have done it with out your help....never thanks man i own ya big time.....if i'm up your way or ya venture down here to Florida any time soon we will have to hook up and hit the trails....i owe ya a few beers...

    Cool deal, makes me think I made the right choice by jumping to 4.56s now even though I am still on 33s. Hopefully, HOPEFULLY if i have NO interuptions this weekend I can FINALLY put it back together. So close, so close. Tonight the Lockright and bolt together the rear end, tomorrow start reassembling the front end...

    "Is that my expresso machine???




    Actually it is hard to do work on a cruiser in the dark. I have done it before but at least it is cooler at night.

    I like the people that are "hardcore" but cannot change their own oil..

    You ride waves that make me enjoy sitting back watching in a lawnchair..
    Hardcore enough for me.
