Keep in mind that unless you have regeared, your speed and odometer is not going to be accurate anymore. The new taller tires go further in one rotation than the old ones did. So with the new tires, you are going further than the speedo says and you are also travelling more miles than your odometer is telling you. Good news is, your gas mileage is better than what you worked out!

Oh ya, your Taco looks awesome! I like the look of the latest set of wheels better than your first set of new ones anyways.

NICE score man. How much was the whole axle?

And where were you able to get a whole complete axle w/ a locker? All the picknpulls never have anything there. I'd be lucky to snatch some interior parts from the one in sunrise.

next few weeks waiting for the parts listed above to come in, ive got plenty of room to put the axle into the truck just gotta bring tools with me, and im gonna hold off on the u bolt flip kit and back plate till i get it working.
