[QUOTE="JcArnold"]In my experience, a locker up front is the most valuable item to have./QUOTE]

X2

I was pretty amazed at how much easier some obstacles became after my lunchbox locker in the front D30.

Regarding the d35, mine lasted a year before the pinion seal began leaking after I threw on my lift and 35" KM2s. Make a couple loud "clunks" prior to me replacing with the 8.8. For the price, couldn't beat doing the 8.8 against the super35 or d44. Not sure how much longer mine was going to last me. Yours may have a lot of life left in him.

X3 a front locker is far more useful than a rear one. And far less likely to cause breakage (unless it is a spool/arb).

For sale... We will be putting it on the market in the next couple weeks, if not sooner. My wife and I are going on our Final Walkthrough this morning at our new home.

I just built an 8.8 with a truss for slightly more than what i would have put into a super 35 kit. The 8.8 is quiet where i had all kinds of clunks and leaks with the 35. Much nicer in my opinion, since i gained LSD in the process.

Thanks!

Not too sure. Would be good to catch up with everyone again. Been a little while... JCArnold, how's the schedule?? Would a HH one Friday evening be feasible?

I'm trying to make a day trip to hidden falls on Sunday March 2nd if anyone wants to join along, maybe even camp Saturday night depending on my plans for Saturday.

On another note: As of right now I have a passenger seat open for this Friday and Saturday at the Katemcy opener if anyone wants to tag along or even bring the jeep out to wheel

For Katemcy this weekend, I'll be leaving Friday morning and coming back Sunday morning so I'll be camping Friday and Saturday night. You're welcome to ride along and sleep in the RV
