Re: lift kits
35s and a locker is great with the correct gear ratio for what you are doing. For crawling, the stock gears combined with this setup isnt going to give you what you are looking for. Like Norm said, add a rear locker but at the same time regear to match the new tire size. Also, a LS in the front is a good idea, but remember to regear to match the rear.
35s will grenade a stock TTB real fast when worked hard. If you are going to invest in the TTB with gears and a LS, replace the stock u-joints with stronger units, and maybe consider upgrading the slip yoke to a unit from a Dana 50 TTB frm an F-250.
Norm is one of the people that wheeled the TTB hard, but if I remember right that was with 33s. Never the less, he will more than likely point you in the right direction.
