Local shop suggested the ratio. They installed my Kryptonite tie rods, so I felt good going back. Very slight whine can be heard over the mud tires sometimes. I also went with a Yukon diff cover, but it’s blocked by a 33 inch spare (I have a 37 inch spare to test fit…will it fit hmmm).
This just happened to me. I couldn’t see it from up top, but looking through the fender well the plug wire was disconnected from the plug. 4K miles after replacing the lifters, so you know I was thinking DoD again.
I pulled the liner off for the pic. A little more trimming to do on the rear part of the fender.
The 3.08s were a dog with the 285/70r18s, so I wasn't about to leave them in for this bigger/heavier setup. It's drives effortlessly up hills now with the new gears. No problems turning the 37s...
It’s so nice to drive now with the new gears. I’m still breaking them in, but it’s not bogging down going up hills now. I feel better having the posi versus the factory locker.
I had to cut some metal from the rear part of the fender. More so on the passenger side which was weird. I also did...
I need as much clearance as possible for those events especially around the rear part of the fender. I used to rub there with my current setup turning into an incline. I had to push the liner back a little.

I would have to trim or remove some plastic here.
Slight contact on the rear section...
It seems like some vent tube has come unhooked near the rear axle. The tube is routed up over the frame up to the driver quarter panel near the rear bumper where it terminates with a black cap. Ideas?
