i bet money it has more to do with who sets the gears up than how hard its been wheeled.

Opened the diff. The gears and detroit are in great shape. The pattern on the gears looks fine. Hard to get a good pic of the pattern lol.


Ordered the power steering fittings from PSC. Still need to order the pitman arm and the ballistic brackets. Maybe I'll get those tonight.

It will be just like the rest of the SAS guys. Toyota box and steering shaft made from 12 different vehicles.

Yes tires are staying the same size. For the stuff I'll be doing 35s should be plenty big.

35s are where its at! Besides the D30 won't be happy with anything bigger, not that itll be very happy with 35s but you get the idea.

I will seriously consider it. I wanna do some wheeling on some of that good stuff that test your limits.
