    Nevermind, LOLz. Just found out, 2wd's and 4x4 GM's have different frames. SAS is the only solution. Bummer.

    Darn. I was just at a yard that had a similar wrecked 2500 burb. Would have been a great donor truck for all the 4wd parts.

    Some Raptor owners have more money than brains. Nothing new here, they exceeded the limits of the truck. If the frame deosn't bend after every other part gets blown through by a way too hard hit,...

    I'd go new. The new "actually Ford built" diesels seem excellent.

    That being said, I would do some research on older 6.8L Fords, or even 6.2L gas new Fords as well. They'll drink more, but...

    I'd put a Truetrac in the front of an F150. I'm not familiar enough with the newer F150 rear axle to suggest there.

    I think Ox makes a selectable locker for the F150 front.

    Weird. That's the first good experience of a front locker in snow that I've heard off. Especially the Aussie locker! Lunch box lockers don't unlock as easy, or at all, under power as a Detroit...

    The 4 cylinder Jeeps do just about everything offroad our 4.0L's ever did. But were just slow on the roads. So I don't mod my engines much. A basic 4.0L in a Jeep or SUV is fine, and any small...

    I'd also research the Cooper STT, GY Duratrac, and Kelly Safari TSR. So far I prefer the softer Duratrac. The Kelly is a bit harder compound in the winter.

    I have no idea why you're overlooking the Ulimited Jeeps and the newer Wranglers. IME, the "other" Jeeps are in name only, and have been huge dissapointments offroad in my area.
