    Well hate to say it, but I'm stepping into no no land!!...lol! I raised the perches off the axle to make up for the spring flattening out from doing the SOA. Gears are 4.10 and a locker hasn't been found for it yet. If I don't find one I can afford then its getting welded.

    At least you know you're being a retard... Ill give you that... Why not just put new springs that arent worn out and on the verge of breaking on it instead of building shitty perches????????????

    The springs aren't worn out in fact their lift springs. Its just the diffrence of being SOA. Nature of the beast so to speak.

    You said they flattened out... i figured you meant they were worn

    With the extensions set up like you have it, you're going to get MAD front axle wrap, and you're going to bust the front drive shaft Ujoints... Its NOT "if", it's a WHEN!

    With your reputation of driving 2 hours, and breaking shit within the first 30 minutes, Im giving my $0.02 on your project to help prevent a catastrophic failure that leaves you with out a rig, and 5 other rigs trying to get you off the trail and to the top of the hill....
