Re: X90 Bull Bar
Now that I think about it, we do have apretty nice drive. 1/2 is by a creek with huge trees, 1/4 is by the lake, the other 1/4 is cow pastures and "Main Street USA". :^)
>I'd like to have it ready for next year's ZookiMelt.
Sounds like we might have an X-contigent there!
>29-30" BajaBelted tires on. Did you re-gear for your tires? Does it need it? I know the stock diff gears are 4:62's. Is that enough?
I did regear. I put in the 5.12's I had from my Sidekick. I wouldn't say the regearing was mandatory. However, I did want to be able to tow our offroad trailer cross-country and maintain 75-80 mph. The lower gears allow this. If you're coming from a Samurai though, you won't be disappointed with the power and stock gears. The thing still boogies.
I also want to make it a very offroad capable vehicle. The lower diff gears helped a bit, but the most dramatic change came from the 4.3:1 low tcase gears.
When I go up to 31" tires next Spring, I'll try and track down a set of 5.38 diffs. The 5.12's will be up for grabs then, sans ARB's :^)
