    Kojak, YJ's are leaf spring. No airbags for that application that I'm aware of. Air shocks are the only option. :)

    If you're only looking for load compensation, and we're talking about camping...

    DRW axle is a little wider flange to flange. Think about it, with that much backspacing, the mounting surface has to be farther outboard to keep the tire out of the spring.

    The DRW will look...

    So can you find non-dually wheels locally? Note that the 2011+ GM trucks use a different 8-lug pattern (8 on 180mm) than 2010 down (8 on 6.5"). Different than '00+ superduty too, which is 8 on 170....

    And you were all saying that $10k starting price was silly... :) Hopefully they get a LOT cheaper soon. I could use one as a yard truck. :)

    If not, nice 5-tons are going for as low as $3500...

    Hmm. Interesting. I'm running an '06 2500 (GMT800) now, and just passed 200k on the factory front wheelbearings. The other truck I had was a '96 2500 (GMT400) and made 300k before I sold it. ...

    For that era of truck, if the pump is noisy, it probably needs replaced. If it's not noisy, just keep running it. :) Trick for "dead" pump: If it starts, then dies, or just won't start, and you...

    No bow means you can just flip it. With brakes, you have to turn the brakes right side up again. No brakes, good to go. As pointed out above, the "straps" are commonly called spring shackles, and...

    If your Sub is an 8-lug, any diff that is listed for a 9.5" GM rear axle will also fit your 9.25" front axle. (Isn't that nice!!:) )
    If you have a 6-lug truck, there's not a diff made for it that...

    Indeed, you do have a 16x7 wheel. That stinks, because I bought a spare wheel from a JY that was supposed to be for a Chevy 2500 of 2005 era, and it is marked 07 08 02 3 K 4 16x 6.5... I see that...

    IIRC, Dakota Digital makes a similar unit. If you're mounting it inside, theirs might work well too. You may want to GTS for yourself... :)

    Actually, your wheels are 16x6.5. :)

    Most aftermarket 16x8 wheels will have backspace of 4.5", which is the same as the steel wheels you're running. But the added 1.5" of width will then be all...
