    I just completed the lift and tires. I have a winch mount but no winch. I have half ton axles w/ 36" IROKS. What should I start building towards getting, going 3/4 ton w/ new gears? Winch? I know most of its preference but what do u guys think.

    If you are on 36's and you wheel... I'd either do GEARS (4.56's are real nice for that combo) or I would just buy axles already setup with good gears. Just my .02!

    Have you done any bracing on your steering box? That has to be one of the BEST things I've done to my truck to date. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I got my eyes peeled for some axles for ya! You needed the axles I just sold from under my truck! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I am thinkin 14B rear for sure and a 44 front, that is unless I can get my hands on another 60 like mine. Those would be the ticket in your truck. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
