cant afford to do both!!! Im going back out to vegas for a little vaca later this month. so which do i choose?

i say lock the front first i know there has been several obstacles that if i had only been locked in the back it would have made it just a little harder but being locked in the front it has been cake but i cant really say because i have only been locked in the front and i did this because i want a selectable in the rear

it would be nice to ask someone who had one jeep with just the rear locked and then that person bought another jeep with just the front locked and see which one they liked best but i believe this question is mostly opinion just like the Manual Vs. Automatic ya know but yea the best would be to locked all around although i havn't ran into a situation yet where i have needed the rear locked but im hoping to soon that way i will be more encouraged to get that rear axle done

Im going to need a HD steering setup before this run. After watching some of those youtube videos im a little more nervous. The experienced guys made this trail seem like cake, but there were some decent sized rocks in there. My stock tie rod is already bent enough as is.

I plan on doing the front first. I can't seem to ever find one on eBay. The best price I've found thanks to Mr.B is at Northridge 4x4, $250 shipped.

Connor quit worrying about rims, run what you got on there esp. if you're only going to 31's.

I'm all for getting together to help wrench, I've got tons of tools and a welder, unfortunately I've got NO SPACE, I have to work on my junk basically on the street.

Surely somebody has to have a shop and a lift I will if I ever buy my wife a new house.

You'd probably make it up fine, especially with the rear Detroit that guy didn't seem to use the skinny pedal much at all trying to make it up. but my D35 on the other hand... Well...

I have air tools and torque wrenches. We possibly could have the wrench party at my place.
