Re: need advise fast!!!!

Ive got my assend welded up solid, never broke an axle, and thats running 31" tyres and driving hard! Cost me nothing, a lot cheaper than a real locker... And it doesnt have any clicking. I would say go for it!

Re: need advise fast!!!!

Re: need advise fast!!!!

my advice:

if your rig sees a lot of road-miles - go with the locker... (its way saver on snow, ice, etc...)

if its a trail-only rig - weld it up

Re: need advise fast!!!!

My buddy had his welded and loved it. But he went back to the locker cause his tires were dissapearing with all the in-town miles he was doing. Otherwise I think he would have stuck with the welded rear. On another note, I am getting rid of my locker cause of all the driveline slop it makes, which is a pain for in-town driving. All i need now is enough money for an air-locker (or spider gears for a kick rearend!)

Re: need advise fast!!!!

Chris did you receive my e-mail I sent today?

Should I expect the money order from you soon?

Please reply.
I would hate to think that I've been had for the first time, having sent something out BEFORE getting the money for it......

Thx
