Why use the TTB upper buckets?
Why cut out the TTB Upper buckets, take the chance of mounting the earlier bucket incorrectly, buy more shocks (already have 4) - when everything is there ?
Now........this is just me
.....I live in Michigan - there are no hardcore
places to wheel around here. I'm doing this for myself - general fooling around in the woods and the opportunity later to go up tire size and not have to fart around with the TTB when a live axle is more forgiving.
