    do you have full springs in the back? or blocks? if blocks fix that problem. steering stabalizer? winch? full size spare? spare parts? or new parts and keep the old as spare. welder? on board air? soft top?
    or a spool and gears all the way round. if you push your cash a bit...

    Sadly i think it's geard stock! But who knows I'm the 3rd owner. Im planning on getting rear springs 6in (how much would that cost) I dont really need a winch or compressor or welder or anyhting. I have a fullsize spare, 40klb tow strap, Im thinking i could benefit from a hi-lift jack. I dont want spools, lockers maybe, I'm thnking more Posi b/c no engage dissengage noises (is there??) on the road etc. Im gunna go wheelin hopfully i wont get stuck bad. My friend almot got stuck in some ruts, he has 44" boggers but he was in 2wd. He said all the trails are like under water, my friend w/ a stock K5 got stuck at the entrance of one of the trails in 4low. But he has stock tires very worn. So I'm thiking gears and rear Posi , or a Force 2 Catback system, KN filter, 4.11 gears.
    How much would rear 6in springs cost?

    4.56 gears for 35s, not 4.11.
