They say the rear locker is a bit weak due to the LSD .. I usally wheel with the rear locked as from what I have learned is it is most vulnerable when open. The common recomendation is to replace the rear locker with a rubi front locker and give up the LSD ...

I guess if mine breaks I might go to ARB ...

Oh yea, the 4.10's will be a HUGE difference over the stock gearing. It was capable and fun with the stock gearing. I bet it would be a beast with the 4.10's and the lockers. There was a few times when we took it out the first time that a locker would have helped a lot.

What are the 30 & 35's worth? They are in good shape.

I don't know, I sold mine cheap to a friend, like $100 for both ... I keep the front calipers.

I saw on another board someone wanted $300 for a complete rear and another poster thought that was not to bad ... I would think the front 30 would be worth less. $200 to $400 range for the pair (30-35 @ 3.07, open) maybe.

If you hear any squeaking out of those front outter "U" joints change them asap ... I busted both sides pretty quickly, both after a day of wheelin.
It was like the next time I stressed them a couple days later. Seems like after you beat on them some the caps move a bit and next time they get pushed they pop out Both did not break the same day but weeks apart. They did squeak though when wet so they warned me, . I was runnin 35's

I ended up with RCV's front shafts yowee ($) those shafts do wheel smooth

I will probably offer them up for $300 for the pair. I don't see why they are not worth that. Shoot, I could probably get that much in scrap for them.

Thanks for the info on the u-joints. I will keep my ears open for the squeek.
