I have been told that the IROK's are lighter than the MTR's. Don't know as I haven't weighed them out.

Would you say that you tore it up from the offroad stress or just too much tire on the road?

Since then I've added a bodylift(last August 2005) and 35" MTR's (December 2005). I've also blown out two lower ball joints and a Moog upper arm(passenger side). My rears are rearched spring packs with chevy lowering shackles. At this point, I don't think I'm gonna do anymore to it. Maybe, when I get some $$$ from the new job, I'll replace the front no-slip with an ECTED, so I have selectables both front and rear.
they making a ected for our fronts now??


how you likin the MT/Rs btw?

I was talking to a member here while we were installing my 4.56s and he said that the standard D35 locker wont fit, its too wide. its worth a try but he was pretty confident that it wouldnt fit.


You have MTRs too? haha weird.
