    I bought my mini spool from www.polyperformance.com great guys to deal with and fast shipping. The install was easy like under 30 minutes. The traction is great out on the trails. on the street not so great the turning radius sucks but it always has anyways it's a burb not a porche.

    I'm pretty sure this one is a Yukon ... and may have been bought at Randy's R & P.

    If I find the post, I'll post.

    yeah, if you want the strongest solution, go with the full spool from Yukon.

    It really affects your turning radius. :eek1: However, it was pretty easy to install, and it is going to be bulletproof. I think the price was $240 from Randy's. My K5 is only for off road so I figured it was the cheapest, strongest way to go.

    Just installed the mini spool from Ouverson Engineering. Super nice guy and shipped it out same day for me. $180.00 ain't too bad either.
