    Here are the results of my first place in the mud with my new Geolanders.

    They worked SO much better than my stock tires. I can go places in 2wd that would have beeen a challenge in 4wd with the other tires. I'm very happy with their mud performance. Now I'm on the lookout for a 3/4 ton truck with 4.10 gearing so I can get my power back up. The 305 just doesn't like turning those meats in 2hi. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    I'm considering welding up the rear 14b... but not sure yet cause I mainly do street. I've also considered just welding the front because I only use it when I'm offroad but then turning would suck arse. I would *love* to be able to afford a detroit front and rear. Thats like my life dream /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Mud is always fun! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I would not weld the diff if I was you, save your money for a detroit if it's going to be a Daily Driver.

    I run a welded front and it is not hard to turn like they say I haven't noticed a difference and haven't put my hydro ram on yet.

    cool. Did you figure out your vibration?
    Where did you find the mud?
