Got OBA yet? Perhaps a few more $$ and get the dual force.

CL usually has deals on Warn winches. Found ones for Darren and LaVerna for good prices...

Don't have OBA yet. Gonna wait till I regear and get the locker. What is the dual force Wes?

Will probably just stick with the VR series.

Oh right yes that would be cool but won't fit too tall. Unless the compressor and control pack are both removable

Bought a winch today. Warn M8000-s

Now on to a seprate issue. Went to move the truck today so i could start prepping it for the bumper install, seems that one of the rear wheels refuses to move. I last moved it about a month ago. Any insight would be great.

Thanks

Did you do any water crossings before you took the insurance off it? It could be a seized up wheel bearing.

You'll need to take the axel shaft to a shop to get it pressed off the bearing. Replace all the seals while you're at it.

ok. so transfer case was not working durring the may long weekend trip. Was stuck in 4hi/AWD. got time to open it up today and fix it. the problem was exactly what rick told me it would be (thanks rick for the diagnosis as i would have been lost) the neutral gates had slipped out of allignment. once i figured out what needed to come apart to get in there i had it fixed.
