hey, at least we helped you get it flipped over

Neither of us are much good for electrical, we are more mechanical, would have been more help getting it in there, like I thought you were going to do last night!

well the jeep is in the shop finally. Sold the D30 and be picking up my new Ford 44 for up front this week. Plan is 5.5" with gay BW fenders, girl likes them. and we'll see how long they last and be going back up to 37's. :brows: Keeping the 8.8 for out back, planed on running 4.88's but wondering if I could just run the 4.10's again as I will be adding a doubler tcase set up???

What you guys think, run the 4.10's or swap to 4.88's? More a trail rig and will not see as much road as before only to trail mostly. I've seen guys run 4.10 with 39's but I do not have a stroked 383 either....

Give me some input guys, also some suggestions.
