Got one spring free, then the floor jack gave up. Did a run to Carson and picked up a new pair of jack stands and some hydraulic jack oil. I'll hit it again when the next window opens.

Stripped, clay bared, cut & polished, glazed, sealed, and waxed the Yagi today... The PO really did a number on the exterior. He even super glued his deuchey Overland Bound medallion on the fender so it is kinda like polishing a turd! :)

I also installed my on-hwy nav system, satellite radio and my offroad navs. I got an sPOD to run the lights and aux equipment but it isn't installed yet.

Got the big girl tore down today. Found that I chipped 2 teeth on the front ring, no damage to the rear ring:pinion, but found I have rust on the rear locker shift fork slider. It looks like this is the reason why it was really lazy locking. Found out my diff ratio is 4.10, and that confirms that my tcase has under drive gears. Now, I need to decide what gears I’m going to get.

Didn’t realize that my post was cut off.
My max engine torque (~450 wheel), with the new turbo, will be around 2100rpm.
I have both the 10% under drive high gear, and the 3.1 low gear in my tcase. I’m trying to keep my rpm around 2200-2250 at 70.
So:
Keep 4.10s, and the 10% under drive @70 is 2340rpm
4.10s, stock high gear @70 is 2127rpm
4.10s, 10% over @70 is 1990rpm

4.56s, 10% under @70 is 2595rpm
4.56s, stock high gear @70 is 2365rpm
4.56s, go to a 10% over @70 is 2130rpm

4.88s, 10% under @70 is 2784
4.88s, stock high gear @70 is 2531
4.88s, 10% over @70 is 2278

I guess my choices would be to change from an under drive high gear to the over drive gear, and go to 4.56 or 4.88. I would need to figure out the install for the tcase gears and then I’ll sell the under drive gears.
