I've got marlin and IW, so I'll take a closer look at both.

ive tried caring a lot, and very little when resealing it with nothing working. the last time we took it all apart, cleaned everything way more than i normally do, let dry, i always use toyota rtv, let it sit before adding oil and it still leaks. i see now that they dont list it on lowrange's website, which makes sense to me why, or i just cant find it anymore.

i can tell you that putting it on the outside like it was caulking does not work to seal it either lol
I've had my share and of 3rd member leaks, but that would be down right fucking annoying.

Get to it engineer!

But fix my link and shock mount problem first. :anon:

These Johnny joints are so stout they're fucking with my link mounts. Think they might be slightly twisted because I played hell hammering them into place on Saturday.

Aye. My Johnny joints are supposed to be direct oem width . Exact same as the ones metal tech uses for their links. Mine don't fit easily. Could be from hitting them with the impact, but when I was under it the other day you can tell they're tweaked. Think my panhard upper bracket is tweaked too. Haha. I've only had this axle for like a year? Can't remember when I swapped it.

So after forgetting this forum exists for a while, and catching up on recent podcast listening I am here. I am trying to figure out the crawl box/dual case options for a tacoma that can also clock the t case. Aside from a flat belly, none of this work will get you a lower low range, correct @AssBurns ?

Lol how can you forget about the best forum out there? :flipoff:

So yeah, the only benefit to this is ground clearance. No benefit to having lower gearing. If you are wanting to do a crawl box along with this, you would want something that is made for that specifically. I know inchworm had something back in the day (@snotaco has one. Maybe he can share some pics). With this clocking ring, you would have to double it up on the adapter which I would not recommend at all. Maybe @eimkeith can develop something for a clockable crawlbox adapter. :boink:
