UPS delivery

The UPS man dropped off some buckets from GBR! Bill and I have been talking over a year trying to decide on what diffs. Thanks to a lot of your advice. 4.13 gears with load bolts. ARB in the rear. Now I have to get them installed.

I concur. Love my GBR diffs... As will you, I'm sure. Spent a lot of time on the phone and over email with Bill too... Never met him, but I'm sure he bears a resemblance to Santa.

Very nice, Jason.

I bet your UPS guy was cussing you when he dropped those off--- I know what they weigh!

Jeff, no kidding I thought I would carry both at the same time to the workshop. What a surprise when I let them down...

Jason question... Why the 4.13 gears? I'm running 255-85/16 and frankly it's perfect on the highway and trail with stock gears (speedo is now accurate as well). My plan was to just add fr/rear ARB lockers and leave the gearing alone.

Umm, not really.

But his diffs definitely look like presents.

Rob after talking to Bill, based on having a 2" lift and planning to go to 285 75 16 and that I pull a trailer at highway speeds and sometimes have to gear down to 3rd. He told me that the 414 with this set up gets close to a stock gearing. I went with just a rear ARB to see if it was enough. I had him set the front up, and put the fitting to the front for an easier addition in the future...
