Icon6 first time flex on new 35's

so earlier this weekend i went out and did some exploring around some local mountains. had a good day going up some new trails and was finally able to see how well i could really tuck these new 35's. truck preformed great but unfortunately all this weekends run did is remind me of how badly i wanna sas the ranger. finally ended up cruising on up to the peak and spent some time taking in the scenery. lots of pics of the truck posing on the rocks demonstrating the superb flex it gets

So thats what 35x12.5 DC Mud's look like - damn nice man! Wish I had the cash to get my truck up another few inches to tuck some 35's and regear to 4.88's! =)

thnx guys, canada is really beautiful. there is so much to see within like 45 min in every direction of your front door. once you hit the trails is like you enter a whole new land, there is so many epic views to be seen out here.

The truck looks good, but with cranked torsion bars and the front sway bar installed it looks like the front suspension doesn't budge an inch. You might be surprised at what the front end does with some down travel and the sway bar endlink removed. Not only will it ride 10x better but you will actually get some flex from it.
Looks like you could use a locker up front too!

ive got plenty of drop up front still but i am gonna be removing the end links soon. i got new ones to put it but i dont think im gonna. its more work to put new ones on than it is to just remove the whole damn thing. i want a locker up front real bad to but i worry id break something up front. mind you if there is a l/s for the front end id look into that.

The only thing I know of now is the lock right for the front.

Supposedly quaife makes a gear driven limited slip for some ridiculous price, although I have never actually seen one. I had an aussie up front (similar to lock right) and didn't run into problems with 33s for the time that I had it. I was worried enough that I carried spare CV joints and gear oil everywhere though. lol
