So..... The battery is going to be in the back.
There's a warn 9500i in the front.
(And maybe a Ramsey 8k in the back)
So the joltage has to get the length of the car.
Slap together a battery tray

Split the 1/0 battery cable. Noone makes a battery cable exactly how I need it. Oh well.

And some 550 amp rated through panel connectors. There'll be a distribution block inside as well.

Got the battery tray hard mounted. Got the fan wiring roughed in and tested. Just gotta finish that wiring and install the bypass switch.

I also got the brakes bled, but the line lock is leaking. Not sure what Steve did there
And got the creeper joints moved on the rear, so she's actually sitting at ride height now.

I run stock toyota 4.10s. Low pinion rear, high pinion front. Its the only thing that lasts if you drive like a tard. Stock gears, koyo bearings, tight preloads.

Aftermarket toyota gears are JUNK. ALL of them.

It's got Yukon 5.29s
In elockers. Hp front standard rear. . They're going to blow.
4.10 are stronger, larger pinion and all that.
Yukons have been the best thing going for aftermarket stuff in toyotaland.
I'm not afraid of the diffs blowing it just means I will upgrade to something bigger.
Toyota 9.5 rears are out there.
Front....hybrid 60/80 maybe.
We'll see.

My truck is 3000lbs so that helps a bit. I have a detroit in the rear and the front high pinion is an elocker out of a lexus LX450. I hate that elocker. Ive killed numerous actuator motors so Ive done a cable conversion to fix that nonsense. Ive also killed the side/engage gear. Next step up for me is a V6/EZ locker conversion. I hate an open or spooled diff. I much prefer a detroit style locking action.

The ring gear hangs in there pretty good tho.

How noisy is the detroit?

It's getting a little off topic but I'm thinking about options for my ford 8.8

I ran the same front elocker for a bunch of years. No issues.
