    I'd say 90% of the broken ring and pinions happen on the 8" rear. It just doesn't happen all that often to the 8.4, so why not do it right the first time.

    The Tundra 10.5 rear axle is fucking HUGE and zero aftermarket.

    That's the info I wanted to hear. I may just do the rear Regear and spool for now until I get around to do the whole rear axle.

    I'm with them ^^^ I got sick and tired of blowing ring gears (I never blew a pinion). I am very happy with my 8.4 w/ARB so far!

    Regarding Sierra and Yukon merging. IIRC Yukon is Randy's Ring and Pinion and if they merged its all Yukon now.

    Think he said it has great road manners. Especially compared to a Lock Right

    That's what happens when you try to "wheel" in 2wd. You break shit because of the requisite speed lol

    Agree. But on the flip side, for someone who is a friend/ TOR member (synonymous really), I'll work on they're truck almost any hour day or night. And if I'm not there, I'll still let them come over and use my tools and driveway space.

    I'm with you there. I have a circle of friends out in Morning Glory that can count on me and I can count on them if we need help. Funny but most of them were found helping others on their rides.
