the hostility on this forum is ridiculous. you clearly missed my sarcasm ... i was referring to exactly this: "But you saw it on the internet, so it must be true. They cant put anything on the internet that isn't true." and just to be clear i was also referring to the insisted global "truths" on this forum that are generally overstated and only apply to the 1%.
to me, those numbers are not close in RPMs.
i guess i should have asked if you plan to run lockers up front but it doesn't matter anymore.
It really doesn't matter, but I am locked up front too... but shhhhh because you should not run a locker in a D30 either !
and there is one thing that makes this forum unique. Its not hostility. It is truth and factual data that is backed by real world users.
It is too common nowadays for people to continually put out bad information that is totally inaccurate. It is not fair to the newer Jeepers who are trying to build their Jeeps and are inundated with information that is not factual.
What you get here is the truth that is not biased bu certain brands or forum owners and moderators who push specific agendas. You will get the best advice here if you can weed through all of the posts about...
I heard you shouldnt...
I read you shouldnt....
I heard this will happen if ....
plenty of guys in here are running great setups that flat out work such as locked and trussed 30/44 on 35's with 3:15 gears. all of which will be chastised on other forums where new members are told that they will bend axles, break ring and pinions, blow up lockers, destroy axles
as a result, members are forced out of that particular setup and more importantly forced out of building a very very cpable rig that can whee land the true off roading experience because of something that they read on the internet that anyone with a keyboard can type whatever they want.
sorry if you took it as hostility, but the main objective here was met. The OP is getting hooked up with Marcus, so it is a guarantee that he will get good information, great service and a great experience with a top notch vendor.
and the irony = there is a fine line between hostility and sarcasm just as there is a fine line between information and facts when it comes to forums !
