That's what I used for the legs on ours. There were a stack of poles on a farm I lease n the owner said if I touched one I had to take them all...so I've been using them over the years for odd ball stuff.....next up will be hunting blinds.

I would like to have a few of those to make a parking area for the camper, guess I'll have to call Win Energy and see if they will be out my way anytime soon.

Re: Important

4.88 or 5.13 gears for a rig on 36's that maybe sees 8,000 miles a year for street driving. Which would be better? Normally just drive rig back and forth to work every now and then.

Re: Important

go 5.13, since it is a trail rig predominantly you will be happy with the deeper gears.

Re: Important

Thanks. Just starting to gather parts up for it. Just didn't know which would be better. Heck we've only put about 25k miles on it in 5 years.

this! I had 5.13 on 35", 36", and 37" with my 44/9 4.0, AW4, 231. it did highway speeds just fine but it could have been a tad deeper in 4LO so 5.38 would have been awesome!
