    What was the cost of the locker? I hadn't heard of them yet. The rear e-locker is a great option.

    The locker was $1400, buy once cry once lol. But by the time you buy a compressor itís not that much of a difference compared to ARB. I will definitely report back on how it works. Iíve been extremely impressed with the Toyota elocker in the rear. Also Iím not a big fan of compressors and air lines probably because I use them all the time at work.

    Also added these yesterday to get my backspacing to 3.5Ē in preparation of running the 35ís. The width wonít clear the uca at droop otherwise. Only issue is now it will rub at fender/firewall and maybe the body mount I had chopped last year but Iíll deal with that later.

    Most of the work should be done in the next couple weeks hence the reason Iím missing the run on Saturday and I think Iím working too. After that Iíll be doing some light wheeling to break in the gears and find any problems lol. May 1st Iím headed to Moab. Iíll text you man, so we can go wheeling soon

    First round of clearancing complete, no rubbing under normal driving conditions. The body mount will need bigger chop for wheeling. More to come soon

    No Iím actually going to a Toyota Land Cruiser/Rising Sun event called Cruise Moab, should be a fun time and Coryís going too. I will have the wife and kids with me as well, more on that later. So the diffs, spindle and cam tab gussets were installed by Tru automotive in Sheridan. I still havenít wired the front locker but hopefully this weekend. The 5.29ís are awesome the truck doesnít even notice the 35ís. The rpms are a little higher but only noticeable at high speeds up hill. So far Iím happy with all the work but I still have quite a bit of testing and cutting.

    Front locker wiring almost complete waiting on a mini fuse tap. Also cut a lot off the front of the body mount. Iíll be on an easy trail Sunday breaking in the front diff and doing some testing if anyone happens to read this and is bored on Sunday lol.

    Hey Matt and Trent that would be awesome if you guyís want to meet up but Iíll be honest it wonít really be wheeling because of the break in process on the gears. Iím thinking the south side of Switzerland about 9-9:30. Did you buy something else Matt? Also Iíll be up in that area every Sunday until May if you canít make this one Trent. Definitely want to go wheeling with you guys, this season is going to be a good one

    Iím going to be gentle on my new Power Wagon and keep it nice (unlike the Rebel that I traded it for yesterday) so Iím fine doing something very mellow. Ill probably take the Jeep out on Saturday but could see going for a ride Sunday morning and checking out your build in process!!

    Well didnít make it to a trail today do to the crappy alignment Firestone did that has to be redone. They just donít understand that my specs are way outside factory parameters, guess Iíll try Toytec this week. I did manage to get my Rci rear bumper installed (which I got a killer deal on). Iím now at 26Ē to the lowest point of the bumper (the receiver is behind the license plate now). A stock Tacoma is around 20Ē to the hitch.

    Finally got some trail time on the new set up. I ran So Switz to Gordon Gulch to pee wink with some cool downs in between. First impression on 35¬Ē MT¬ís (w/5.29¬ís) night and day compared to a 33¬Ē AT. There were some rutted out snowy sections that added a little fun. I finally got a proper alignment from Toytec in Denver. No rubbing on body mount of course I cut the entire front off so I think I¬ím ok there. Now when it really flexes I¬ím rubbing the plastic fender flare which I was really hoping not to cut. No rubbing in the rear so far. I tested 4hi, 4 lo and rear locker. I have not tested front locker, figured I¬íd give the gears a little time to wear in first. Next weekend I¬íll probably run north gross 68j if anyone is bored, more mellow testing.
