Yeah, no kidding! The previous owner of mine decided it would be better to get open diff 3.08's with his 31's. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
You lucky dog, you! [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: Got my build sheet in the mail the other day.

[img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] yepyep, well I didn't even know till I got the build sheet!, I thought I had a limited slip rear and open front from the stuff I read on the net, my front right hub is busted so I don't know how well the limited slip works, but I'll find out eventually, have more important things on the to do list, like saving up some $ to have my rear seal replaced and rebuild my engine before I start taking the beast offroad cause with my lead foot, if there is something that's close to breaking in the engine, with my luck it'll break first time I go offroad, so as I said in a previous post, the beast will be parked for a lil while so I can save up some $ to fix it up a bit

Didn't Know they made 3.50 gears [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] My build sheet wasn't that detailed- More basic [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Got my build sheet in the mail the other day.

That makes no sense, Ford never offered a locker in the rear or front, if anything they're both Crap Loks which is as good as an open diff. Not ripping on your ride, just ripping on Ford.

Yep, the 9"'s got 3.50 gears.

I think it's funny they consider the 105" wb an "option" LOL

I dunno Shilo. I've heard that the 10.25" diff track lok works pretty good. But I'll agree with ya on the rest of them. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] NORM
