you going to try and get the radials or bias. I've heard the bias 37" rockers run small.


and those are the first fenders I've really liked. Nice

Front spool and rear aussie/selectable? Isn't it usually the other way around?

HAHA I was thinking the same thing
Im sick of the aussie in back I have to drive like a granny or im squeeling every where I go
I want to be able to turn it off, and the 5.13 and spool were already set up in the front axle when I got it
when I have the money I will switch to a selectible up front, but for now Im rolling with it

you just need larger tires to stop the squeal. lol i never had an issue with 37s or larger and an aussie style locker.

those knuckles are high quality for sure. I hope you stick with the pitbulls, those tires are just awesome.

not impossible to steer it will just eat tires for dinner if he drives it on the road because both tires will spin at the same time..normally if you turn one tire slows down..it will like chirp

Where we live, I can't imagine Koyn will ever need to use 4x4 on the street.......

A spool will be just fine in that D44.

with cv's instead of u-joints you dont have to worry about clocking the shafts right (if there not clocked right it makes it harder to turn when locked)
I have heard it was night and day difference with cv's vs ujoints when locked
but I do have manual locking hubs so they will be unlocked on pavment
and I shouldnt have to worry about braking a spool (no moving parts)
I think it will be a solid set up for now, like I said in the future I would like to switch to a selectible.... damn things just cost to much

I read it on pirate it makes since to me.. if you think about how the ujoints move
you can turn your knuckle side to side best when the ujoint is strait up and down side to side cause thats how ujoints move...lol
(so when locked togather like a spool) you would want your yokes clocked the same on each side so the ujoints turn the same way at the same time on each side

I was gonna say something about that clocking earlier.. That makes no sense whatsoever. lol


After getting those bored, I'm gonna predict you having some broken parts in the near future.

yeah i just read your first statement too fast and didnt understand what you said. I personally wouldnt run a spool id rather see drive flanges so you never have to worry about blowing hubs. But that requires you to have some type of selectable locker. at least that is what im hoping. ha
