    Yes I would also like to know. Though I only run 32x11.50s. And if you don't get an answer within the next week I will let you know because I plan on buying a set in two days at a local pick n pull and installing them asap

    Well honestly its a little doggy with the 32s hints buying the 4.625s and because a new clutch runs about 150$ and the gears are only $200 plus the time it takes me to install them.....if you get my drift

    Yep and you won't be able to fine anything because the gear ratio is different then what they came with stock so they say they won't work with our trucks. Does that make since to you? Its kind of hard to explane. Hey can you see the pics on my album? I wanna know if they show up

    Well to be honest I know more about the Gen 1 d50s. But I will do some research and see if I can find out what gears will fit but I think as longer as you have the 2.6 motor then anything that will fit my truck will fit yours as far as gears go. And no I wish I could say I built that bumper but I took some measurements and bought a bumper for a jeep wrangler and it has the same with frontend and the mounts are about the same with apart so I fabed up some mounts and welded them to the frame and then bolted it up

    The bumpers are on eBay for only $300 and I dont know if there are any mods because I haven't done mine yet but plan on doing it some time next week. But there should not be any mods. Also keep your eye out for a gutter mount basket rack that will fit out trucks. On a side note I just got done bolting my freshly painted cut out fenders on and I will be posting a pic soon on my album so be sure to check it out and I'll take a pic of the way I mounted my bumper so you can see

    The 1st and 2nd gen trucks are the same axles and the 84 montero gears will fit also - all the same. If you want lsd for the front, get an lsd from a 87-89 starquest and mount the gears on that carrier.

    This is why I am glad I am part of this web site just for topics like this. I want you to prove me wrong but I beloved that the conquest and starion came with 3.54 gears. So they might have a lsd but the ratio would be wrong...right?

    they should put your rpms back near the same as stock gears and tires.

    Good news I just picked up my gears about 20 min ago 4.625 front third member and 4.625 rear third member with a rear LSD all for only $250 from j and w auto wreckers in Sacramento California. Actually antelope Cali. And they even pulled the parts for me while I was at work. They actually have quite a few d50s and even a couple with the d55 diesel motor. But I'll post back when parts are installed and let u know how they work with my 32s
