What running gear are you planning on entering KOH 2013 with?

Gears or axles?

I'm currently on built Rubi 44's with 4.88 gears and ARB lockers. I am looking to go 60's front and rear for that event and probably stick with 4.88 gears and ARB lockers.

Does that answer your question?

I'd love to see fabricated 9's on your jeep Jay. 60's will be cool too though. You planning to go up in tire size with the 60's?

That is what I was going to do, but the front axle alone from Spyder Co was like $11k to $14k and Ruff Country quoted me around $6k for a bare bones one. So it would just be more affordable to go with some Ford 60's. There is a pair for sale locally that are already on an Ultra4 rig and they are BUILT...... But I have too many things that need to be done first.

Tire limit is 37" for Stock Mod, so 37"s for the immediate future, I may sneak on something larger for the local stuff though.

give currie a call for a price on the 9s, they should be much less and a much better axle then the heavy 60s

Does that answer your question?

Sure did. I was just curious what your drivetrain plan consisted of. That’s always one of the larger pieces of the rig build. It’s a constant battle between strength, weight, and budget.

Are you going to stick with the NP231 or go Atlas?

BTW I have a totally built front Dynatrac Pro Rock Unlimited 44 if you are interested in that.

I say go with the 609 set up.

I built my front end using a currie housing with F450 inner c's and such. I know i didnt put quite that much into it total.

What are the differences between the F350 and F450 inner C's and everything out from them? What parts are bigger and what's the benefits cost to improvement ratio? Would the F450 outers put the wink link back onto the ring and pinion of the Ford 9" center?

I dont know what the difference is. I dont know if there is one. The F450's is just what Currie offered. I'm running the Currie HP center section front and rear right now and their actually an 8.8 ring gear. So its probably the weak link in the mix. That or the lock outs. They all have held up so far and I'm not exactly easy on my junk.

I don't have a dog in the fight one way or the other, I was just hoping for some good advice for my future build options.

I'm liking the poly kit more and more. I'm still trying to get well educated on CO's. Thinking about going with the 14" poly kit in the front but still have to figure out what shock is going to work best.
