Well... I don't know everything about these trucks... but check your axle code on the door sticker. Then bounce that off the chart in the tech section. I'm thinking you probably had 4.10 gears from the factory.Uncle Gump, thanks for the info. If I'm reading the build guide from this site correctly, I have 4.56 gears so I should be good to go with 33', correct? I have been looking into the old torsion keys and bigger blocks. Wulf Suspension has a kit for around $300 that includes Wulf branded shocks. They also sell the same kit with Bilstein shocks for about $525. Should I go for the kit with the Billsteins?
Like your idea about getting to camping spots as my in-laws are retired and like to fish and camp and we are planning to join them some wekends.
I looked at the Wulf suspension stuff when I was considering what i would do to my truck. For one... I couldn't figure out who makes the shocks for them and for two... those torsion keys are indexed even more then the earlier keys then were suggested above. I just didn't think I needed them because I was pretty set on just a 32 inch tire. The higher you go with these torsion bar suspensions... it gets harder on the front end parts. I just want to keep mine as trouble free as I can. For shocks... I chose a set of KYB MonoMax. The Bilsteins have a pretty loyal following but I went with the KYB's because I've had really good luck with their shocks and was a distributor at my dune buggy shop for 20+ years and only had two returns in all those years... and we beat the snot out of them.
