Its not hard at all only a few bolts, I wouldn't get bigger torsion bars i've got 25/ 26mm thick ones it mine, its all good on the road (I don't need to run a front sway bar) but off road its bouncy as fu*k.

Reading this thread on Auszookers made me take a liking to 4.9's http://auszookers.co...ewtopic&t=12636

Nt's come with 3.9 diffs compared to WT 3.7's. With a 31" tyre with 6.5's and 3.9's it will leave me at just over 4000rpm at 100kmh, 4.9's will bring it down to about 3700rpm or so. Since I do a fair amount of long trips I just figure it'll be better for me in the long run.

The only problem would be I will be stuck with 31's as it wont like going up to 33's+, where 6.5's would leave that option open later down the track, but I dont see that happening (I hope :lol: )
