    Stock plastic wears away to almost nothing from abuse. I bought an integy kit (before I knew better) and the bulkhead is the only integy part I still have on my truck. It has taken some serious abuse.

    2wd locker

    Has anyone ever tried to lock the rearend on a 2wd? It would be so nice if it could be done without sacrificing integrity. If so, are the steel gears strong enough to actually run it like that?

    gears for smaller tires

    Does anyone have any gear recommendations for 2.2 tires on my slampede? I know I have to go to a higher ratio and I want something comparable to 86/18 with the stock tires.
