I am pretty sure the setup was money.
Weak link. I ended up going with the USA gear. Called randy's ring and pinion and that is what they recommended. I am going to be setting these up by the weekend. Of course the one week my truck is down it snows +8''.
The 35'' tires are all that the grand cherokee will ever see. So once i get a solid setup with ring and pinion in the d30 it will stay under there. I just can't justify putting 1 ton's or a 44 under the front of this thing with unibody.
anyhow I think project time is going to take over soon..... 4 door samurai on 42'' tires....
big boy project. The grand is going to be my consistant wheeler/daily driver while i build the samurai.
Thanks for the input.
