Keep in mind that some of the Hi-9 setups actually run a reverse cut 8.8 R&P in the 3rd member. AND That OX Lockers are available for an 8.8.

Its not the gears that make the axle. The OX locker works on the principal that you replace the diff cover with the locking mechanism. The 9" does not have a diff cover. If your set on running a 9" in the front, get either a electric locker or ARB.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Wheel, Wrench, Repeat.

All depends on the skinny pedal I guess.
15x8 wheels or 15x10's?

A. I think they look good sucked in a little further
B. I like the extra beed pressure you get when aired down, although with beadlocks it doesn't really matter.
