Received my MDB Fabrication bumper kit a few weeks ago. Finished putting it together, painted it, and put it on! Came out looking good I think! Image

Are those 5100’s for the front? Let me know how they work out. Was thinking about them to just give front of my voy a 3/4” lift. Thanks

I put the rear differential back together in my TB2.0. Decided at the last minute not to re-install the PowerTax no-slip, went with the original open diff.

But why did you decide not to re-install PowerTax? Due to any bad expirence or anything else is the reason behind it?

I don't know his reasons, but I can imagine if you're not off-road very often, the constant tire chirping when turning through parking lots gets annoying. Also might've gained a few fractions of MPG back.
