Gears are all done, for everyone wondering what the 4.88 gears were like on the highway. Here it is, I'm completely happy with this because I didn't purchase this big machine to set land speed records I want to be able to haul the toys to the trail head and to get out into some remote areas comfortably. This gearing when in low range will give me a lot more throttle control when needed.

What's your take on keeping the factory rear locker and adding an ARB up front for if things get nasty?

Wazzubob, Go Cougs!! Factory rear locker or factory limited slip? The Powerwagon would have lockers front and rear anyway so I'm guessing your talking about the anti spin rear in the diesel trucks. Adding a front locker in these heavy trucks I feel is more important then the rear. If you had a choice of only one I would definitely recommend the front. Reason being is steering can be interesting with only a rear locker since the rear wants to push the front through things, and with the weight over the front axle if you get the nose up on most obstacles it will easily pull the rest of the truck up. Let me know if I didn't answer what your question was.

DPP, you nailed it. For us diesel Prospector guys with anti spins, it seems like a good option to keep the rear factory setup and focus on adding traction to the front axle. Keep up the good work!

Go Cougs!

Little update, the snow has been flying here and I couldn't take it anymore I had to go snow wheeling. There was a good group of us this last weekend with a tag along guest from AEV, Kent Klein joined us and helped one of our novice wheelers with some pointers in the white stuff. We hit a trail outside of Pritchard, ID right next to Eagle Creek road 978, we followed that up to NF-348 and then carried on until we couldn't proceed. Great day on the trail with my boy and good buddy's. We also saw a herd of Elk bedded down just staring at us. Figures hunting season is over. I know I don't have my front bumper on yet, my winch ships on the 6th (Warn 16.5ti-s) and I am completing some engine work this weekend. I only want to put the bumper on once.

The goal for the motor is to hit between 5-600hp at the wheels and make it react really quick. So I will be doing some of the engine basics, the things I am waiting to put the bumper on for are a Hamilton 188/220 camshaft, Hamilton Valve springs, ARP headstuds the 4202 studs, bump the inj up to roughly 90hp but balanced, my valve lash secret sauce, then a Fleece 10mm stroker pump, based on some newer findings I may end up pulling the motor and adding some connecting rods and ARP mainstuds to alleviate any issues down the line. From there it will get Fleece coolant tank to relocate the factory tank giving me more room in the engine compartment, and Fleece A/C lines. Those components will give me some room to run the 2nd gen swap single that I'm planning on. Before I do that though the trans will be getting a BD flexplate, enhanced stall torque converter, billet input shaft, Valve body separator plate, and trans tuning so it will hold up to the power. I'll be running an S363SXE charger with a T4 footprint this turbo is a touch small by itself but it moves 79# min of air. The plan is to run that with a larger 400 frame SXE in compounds. That way I get the best of both worlds. Not that I've put much thought into it.

Nice set up. I ran Hardway Performance twin kit on my '11 Cummins. Hamilton cams, injectors etc. EFI live. Fleece cheetah factory style turbo with Engine brake mounted on a steed speed manifold. Pacbrake up top. power was instant and pulled past 3500. I kept the factory brake for towing. Long pulls up ski trails in snow never got hot. Miss the old girl.

Have you noticed any gear noise from 4.88 Nitro's?
I need a gear swap in my 6.4 hemi. 5.13 would be my choice but cant get a answer on programing.
