how will you turn it on then? You need a certain PSI to run an ARB, I dont like the idea of only getting a couple "uses" out of an air tank. then not being able to use my locker. Go with the Ox, they have fixed their engaging problems and are really strong.

Thanx for the replies. Keep the ideas coming....
SO ive now decided on 5.13s. if that chart is right at 65 i will be at 3500 in fourth. In oregon the speedlimit isnt over 65 anywhere.
i'de be a little wary of that chart.it doesn't tell you that a 33" tire is more like 31.5" and a 35 is also that way.each manufacturer is different but you can bet you'll be pulling more rpm's than than the chart says if you go by the size on the sidewall instead of using a tape measure on your rubber.

5.13s will not fit in a D35! 4.88s are all the numerically higher you can go in a D35 in our trucks.

Okey so I want to run 35s. I talked to the guy at the offroad shop and he is trying to talk me outa of a aussi front. And pretty much said that if I use my truck I will blow my front end up. If i can afford it would I be better off just going sas?

SAS would be better if you can afford it and if you have the knowledge, time, and fabrication skills to do it.


An Aussie isn't gonna blow up your frontend unless you really rip on it. I've climbed 2.5ft tall vertical walls with 35's, 4.88, and an aussie and I haven't broke anything. As long as you don't drive around offroad with it floored you'll probably be ok.
