is that a Salt Lake Utah sticker? dana 60 and dana 30 is definately an interesting combo, shafts should be plenty strong with the rcvs, but your pinion in still gonna be your weak point, obviously it's been fine up to now though, just in theory cuz that's what everyone keeps telling me about running 35's on my stock axles... Did you regear at all?

Got some updates!!!

Start off with a few extra horses under the hood. K&N intake to replace the old restrictive air box. Noticed a small gain and even got an extra MPG

Second there is the bumper itself. Its the Tactical Armour Group's WJ multi-carrier. Looks great mounted up and is built nice and sturdy

So we did some tube fender guards that tie into some rock sliders and then tie into the front bumper. The rear are removable in case we need to service the fuel pump



Sits level now. Looks much better. I didnt realize how much of a difference it would make
