Jeep looks very proportioned, I like it. Real 35s just sit so much better than metric 35s. Are you having John color match your corner armor as well?

Sit tight and wait for a great deal. I was looking to build a D60 b/c I was tired of breaking D44 shafts. I found a Spider9 on Hardlinecrawlers with the right gears, correct bolt pattern and width, w/ 40 spline Moser shafts for 2300.

Biggest question for me is how would a Detroit in the front do while in 4wd in the snow? I've considered going with a Detroit in the front but can't decide if its better to go ARB.

Selectables or limited slips in the snow only( preferably gear driven LSD)

Auto lockers are a big no go in my book for snow or ice driving

I love my front and rear arb's

The tub carrying apparatus ... it sucked lifting it over the vertical supports but it will make for a safe mount for the beautified tub on the way back .

Yes, it will, and you will like it. Or else.

So...does that mean you're going wheeling soon?
