I am planning a buildup of my 2nd gen 4runner. So far I have decided on almost everything except for which 3rd members to run. I want to have 5.29 gears and ARB's but I don't know if I should get a high pinion or 4 cyl 3rd for the front. Which one for the rear: 4cyl or V6? Maybe my question should be are those upgrades, to a HP and v6, worth the extra money. I will most likely be buying them built from marlin. Anybody have any imput. I am also not made of money and would rather not spend the money if it is not really worth while. I will be using the rig as my daily driver and doing trails such as the rubicon and similar trails.

Inchworm talked me into a HP/5.29/ARB, and it's one of the best mods I've done.

Not knocking Jim at all, but for heavy use, I would rather run a low pinion. I've seen two many HP fronts break while backing up. It's just my opinion. Of course if you're running single cases and any lift, you'll need a HP to make your drivelines not get mad at you at anything over 20 MPH

Well if you've seen the size of JRT's feet or seen him drive, you'd know why he says that! :flipoff2: He's right of course, but my point is that it has a lot to do with driving style. I'm going on 2 years with 38's and dual cases and no problems. Only one broken inner CroMo axle (on Clawhammer this year), and it broke while backing up, but the R&P, hub studs (ARP froim FROR), Longfields have all been fine.
