Thanks for reminding me about the VSS.
I had completely forgotten about that.
Yes I had read Boss's thread before and had originally planned to go this direction as I like the idea of being able to use OEM parts. I have saved his thread so I can go back there. I always do that when I find mods I will eventually do someday so I don't have to re-search out where they are.
Maybe I am misunderstanding what I'm reading (not like THAT ever happens!)
But I thought there was something about space in the 8.8 for the necessary gearing and locker??
If I get a 8.8 out of an exploder then what
I need to go to 4.56 gearing and I would like to lock up the rear somehow, although the traction lock so far has been dang good off-road.
If I get a locker up front with manual hubs will that work?
Eventually I will want to go to an ARB setup.
Is this something I can do after I have made all the other mods to the front and rear that I want?
I know for some of the gearheads on here I sound like an idiot but I understand the theory behind what is going on I just don't understand the technical aspects of how to make it happen. I just drive them, I don't build them. I hire smart people for that.
Some of the work I will do myself but a lot of it I will farm out.
So what I really need to figure out is what I need to buy to accomplish where I want to go.
Essentially I need to build a shopping list.
