Lastly Picked up a lincoln locked 14 bolt with 5.13's, gave her a shave and welded on new perches. Also threw the t-case back in. I had a blast wrestling the rear end under the truck, the gravel barn floor wasn't very helpful either.



Partially welded, excuse my crappy welding


Installed...

Since the axle incident, my truck leaves me reminders now

Not everyones cool enough to be part of the club Nice, more tools for the shop/apartment. As far a goodies, thick cut 5.13s and a master install kit. Was gonna order it tonight but couldn't find standard rotation thick cut gears on Ron's website. Im gonna give him a call tomorrow and see if he can get some in for me.

Very Interesting, Seems to be popular with the samurai guys. Trying to find a review by someone who had it in a 60. Seems like the amount of forgiveness it gives would be similar to a locker, steering wise. Im gonna look into this deeper...

check this out as an option - http://www.durasolid.com/part-spool-...-ratio-21.aspx

I wouldn't run their other products, but a spool is hard to goof up - I know a few people running these without a problem.

rock solid on here has the best priced drive slugs I know of, something like 140$.

The price is right, the 60 I just picked up has a set of antique superwinches on it. Wouldn't be a bad idea to upgrade to slugs now, and run the spool while saving up for a selectable locker. I would have to do my hydro assist a little sooner, if i wanted to turn. Decisions decisions...

full hydro can be done for around 200$ with a single ended ram. diy4x valve mount, tsc 8" ram, get a hydraulics shop to make lines (more braids=better), forklift or combine steering valve. you may even be able to find a forklift with a usable double ended ram and cut that down under 100$.

look on ebay for springless high steer arms, they're like 100$, or you could make your own in a few hours with a drill, torch, 9" grinder. bam, high dollar bling on the cheap.


i turn 44's just fine and dandy on my tahoe, sitting still on pavement.

Full hydro would be great, but although its going to be a trail rig, Id like to drive it around town every now and then, and I know it can be a little hairy on the street. I also am only running 37's..for now... I feel a little better knowing that if the assist fails I still have the crossover to fall back on. With the way the truck sits now ill have hydro assist for whatever the hydro lines cost me. I appreciate the great info though! when it does come time to step up I will refer back to this

Well, I got a little done over the weekend. The 56's are ready for install the next time Im home.
Disassembled..

Primed..

Couldn't locate any teflon for between the leafs, I even looked for those paper thin cutting boards to cut up. Ended up hitting all contact areas and metal plates with this graphite spray paint from TSC.

Painted and re-assembled.
