    well basically my lift is done on my truck and everything is ready to go.. except for the gears in the 14b rear..

    i have three options

    1st i bought 4.56 gears used off a guy that have a great wear pattern.. i could try to find a new carrier or used one and swap that in..

    2nd i could sell these gears and buy thick gears and use the 3.73 carrier

    3rd is buy a carrier replacement detriot.

    i really would like to go with the detriot so i dont have to swap one in later. but it comes down to $$.. if i went that route the truck would probably be down another week or two so i could save up for the detriot..

    i need some input if you have any other ideas or a cheaper route.. i think im leaning more towards getting the truck running first the cheapest way, then upgrade to what i want

    What gearing is the front? With 36 tall, I would lean to a 456 gearing.

    i was going to use 4.56 gears, but maybe sell my gears and buy the thick 4.56's.. but anyway it seems like for now im getting an open carrier
