Damn you ARB

Installing my new locker today and the bolt holes for the ring gear are too damn small. I hope those bastards will drill out.

I have a jeep and it goes over shit.

In their install documentation for the JK it is made known that they need to be drilled out.

Still, lazy bastards. As if you wouldn't stop making gear for TJs...they're so 1999.

I was nervous about drilling mine out but it went fairly easy.

They drilled out pretty easy. Took me 3 drill bits. Found it was better to use a very low powered drill vs a high torque drill. Got her all together and rolling down the road.
