5.13s on a bagged truck, man youll be i 4th by the time you get out of the intersection. I know in our books at 4WP they have an * next to 4.30s-5.13s, which means it needs the new crosspin.

ill be getting a couple, for my 4.88s, yes two of them, hehehe!!

i looked up the part number today, and its was F88/XLSM. Its a percision gear one. I hope you didnt get G/G gears, they come with a lifetime warranty, but they arent a very good gear set. I would have tried some yukons or P/G or motive.

Thats a pretty good price for all that to your door. that almost seems like employee pricing.

dont get a notched crosspin, its not worth the weakness of the pin. just grind a small bit from the corner of a tooth or two on the ring gear so teh full crosspin can clear it. it in no way weakens the ring gear as the part that will you grind from in out of the contact pattern anyway if the gears are setup correctly.
