Icon12 i need a front axle

or at the very least a locker... i took the truck off-road this afternoon for the first time since its been lifted and i was very impressed at how it did... i got stuck once but was able to get myself out with the help of my trusty 2x6 board i also realized how much of a difference the duff traction bars make since you really miss them when they are not installed (i took them off to paint since they were rusting) i did take my camera but the batteries were dead so driveway shots will have to do... my brother is moving down to Mobile next month for school so i will finally have someone to go wheeling with... he has a 95 taco
