    Truck came with a detroit in rear and a limited slip in front. Found the limited slip to be lacking. Click image for larger version

      Installed a Grizzly locker in the 60. Rplaced axles with RCVs. Did the king pins while I was there. http://www.billavista.com/ is a very good source of info. Life saver.Click image for larger version

              As without a transmission with an OD is real sensitive to ratio changes in differentials and the difference between the NP205 and the weaker but better crawl ratio NP208.

              FYI the edit and quote buttons just changed.
              http://www.grimmjeeper.com/gears.html pretty detailed

                Banks Sidewinder is worth every penny, real complete kit, and turned my 'Burb from a slug into a scoot... nothing record breaking, but I can run 80 at less than 1/4 throttle and it looks like I may manage better than 20 mpg if I can stay outta the boost. =)

                      They are all but exhausted in the government surplus marketplaces..

                      The production numbers made the majority of the models M1008 more available when they were being sold off.

                      The models like the M1031 and M1028A2 always brought a premium as we have sceen in the past where I asked for guesses on final price I think it was a M1028A2 in a thread on the P forum.

                      The M1031 and M1028A2 had or at least were more likely to have the fig 8 pattern NP205 transfer cases.



                      But to be fair for anyone that goes to the expence in time to go search for it I might have deleted the thread.
