I have set gears in the past , but I think with the air lockers I am going to have a shop set them up for me . The quote I got for 5.13 Motive Gears with Timken bearings , all labor and shop fees included was $1050 . For the peace of mind I think I will spend the extra $400 or so on labor . Now if I go to the Jana rear it will add another $150 or so in parts but the labor stays the same.

I'm going to move the front forward and try to get the most out of the rear. I'm hoping to end up 100 WB

Probably, with things like ORI's dancing around in my head. How about a TJ 6 style frame stretch and skip the tub stretch??? With a skinny tank of course.

Full hydro on HP30 would be pretty funny! Snapping knuckles wouldn't be though.
