I got another project that we're trying to build on the cheep cheep. It's a "TJ" with 78 bronco running gear, 300 six,t-18, 205, front 44 rear 9". Since this is a low budget beater rig, I can't really think of any downsides to a full spool front and rear. It's got locking hubs up front so the front spool should be negated on the street. This thing is for the mud and rocks so reliable is most important.
