Yeah I'm thinking on that one. I'd love to make a steering 9" but that is pretty pricey, but so are the Dana 60s in my neck of the woods. My setup right now is working really good and I don't think I would change much before UA. I'm thinking next year some links in the rear with ORIs would be badass and maybe a beefier front axle with some 40s. I have the smallest tires by a lot in the dirty dozen

Hell yea man. Sounds like you made it to the dirty dozen for UA, that's awesome!

What's your opinions on the Atlas after all the road and off-road miles? the 203/205 setup in the ranger is really effing noisy and doesn't really have all that great of a low range.

I'm glad I finally nutted up and went atlas. Great on and off-road. Shifts great. I got the 4.3 and with my granny first it does great for low crawling and I swap around 2nd and third for the in between stuff. I think if I went 5.0 it would be a touch to low and I would be going in and out of high and low all the time

Great Moab pics! Looks like the truck did well, broken hub the only casualty?

For my truck that was the only issue. The suburban lost 2nd and 4th on the way to Moab, so he found a trans while we were there and we changed the trans one night in a campground parking lot. Then the burb broke an axle shaft and called it quits. I hauled him out of cliffhanger and he found a trailer ride home.
