I've heard that you could take a sidekick third member and it would bolt right into my sami housing and it would also change the gearing so I can run the 32"'s I just got?

Heres the poop on that. It take two front diffs out of two trackers to make the front and rear. Its not a yank out and bolt in proccess. Generally they cost around 150$ per set and thats two sets needed for a complete front and rear. They have the option of 5.12's or 4.62's with a grs 1 makes a great crawl ratio for off roading. Max

I know its no quick thing but I heard that you could use sideick third members too. I'm just curious because I can get the side kick ones for almost free. And how do you tell the difference in the gears without taking them out and counting them?

it will bolt in the front no prob. but the rear axles are bigger than the front and wont slide in to the side gears of the tracker front. i put a tracker front pumkin in my zuk and it lasted about 6 months the i blew it to hell. broke the carrier,bent the thrid member where the bearing bolt to the case. i ended up swapping the gears in to the zuk thrird member. you can use the sidekick carrier to make your spacers[after you pull the gears,split it apart and chuck it up in a lath and use one half of the old ring gear surface mount for a spacer you just have part it off the old carrier. the ratios are 4.62 for autos and 5.12s for sticks later mike
