I might have missed it in your thread, whos HID kit are you using?

Also how are the 35s with your 3.73 gears?

And they are decent. I need a lower gearing though

rear d60? build looks good tho man, how bad did the 35's kill your mpg with stock gears? I got 33's I haven't put on yet and I'm getting the same lift, and I'm sorta wondering if I should just sell off my 33's, and pick up some 35's, it would save me $ in the long run.. at least that's what I tell myself
So you've got an E locker in the front, what are you doing for the rear? Ps, I also might have to steal your bumper idea, looks very similiar to one I built on my old rig

I actually went with a Yukon zip air locker for the front. Doing a Dana 60 teraflex t lock in the rear. As far as MPGs, I went from getting about 18 highway to about 13-14

Are you going to upgrade that tiny d30? Especially locked on 35s, I'm surprised it hasn't grenaded yet. My d30 is so worn out open on 35s.

Eventually I will but for now locked with RCVs is enough
