    Ken, you have over drive don't you, go 5.13. Get your gears from drivetraindirect.com and mention this site for a discount.

    Hey Steve, I mentioned this site, and the e-mail from the quote, and the ad in Four Wheeler, and they didn't give me a discount. But they did give me the right parts and everything went together real well.

    That's odd they didn't offer a discount, if anybody else is buying ask for Dave Rittenhouse, he is the manager at Drive Train Direct and the one who told me about a discount.

    What size tires are you running? I'm having trouble deciding between 4.56, 4.88, or even 5.13. I am planning on running 35" Boggers. I have the 700-R4, but when I put the 14 bolt in, I'll probably go to a TH350 or an SM465.

    Wasn't a big deal. They still had the best price even without the discount.
