well im sitting here waiting for the cable guy so ive been doing some research.

shavedmax initially gave me the rodeo axle idea, but i though there were no diff options...till i found out they have dana44 diffs! which is awesome btw.

so theres plenty of gear ratio options

and it comes in many troopers and rodeos

http://www.infamousnissan.com/forum/...e+width&page=2
here is the thread for reference

here is some more info to help find the exact rear.
http://www.zu4x.com/modules.php?name...howpage&pid=21

this attests to the d44's strength. survives a 11 second 3200 pound vehicle.
http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/dana...ey-160835.html
and i do remember running my bronco in fwd for about a week while i waited for a driveshaft and spinning the crap out of the front 33s with no harm..

this is the lsd diff options available (isuzus are 30 spline)
http://www.jawsgear.com/Positraction...D44-30_Spline/

and the 93-97 isuzu 44s can run any ring and pinion. scoreeeee
1st generation 2nd generation
model year(s) 93-97 Rodeo
(with the 3.2L Isuzu engine) 98+ Rodeo, Amigo, Rodeo Sport
width 59.75 wms to wms
63 wms to wms

configuration leaf coil
axle tube diameter
axle tube thickness
axle shaft diameter
spline count 30-spline 30-spline
ring gear standard THICK D44 ring gear
pinion standard D44 pinion Larger diameter pinion shaft requiring a different ID on the pinion bearing... or a different bearing.
brakes

4cyl - drum

4x4 - disc
4x2 - drum

ABS Single ABS sensor on pumpkin or two in the tubes.

factory gear ratios 4.10 - 15" standard wheels

4x2 : 3.73 (98-99), 4.10, 4.30, 4.56, 4.78
4x4 : 4.10 (98-03), 4.30

aftermarket gear ratios any commonly available D44 ratio
factory differentials THICK ring gear on a LOW (3.73-) carrier
G80 option code - LSD
98 (possibly 99) LSD was optional. 00+ all had mandatory LSD. G80 option code does not apply to 2nd gen.
aftermarket differentials LockRight 2410 - open carrier No-Slip - Tracloc carrier
notes A few have reported needing to use one of the OEM pinion bearings to set up the pinion due to the ID of the housing

i think im gonna take a look at this thing today
http://longisland.craigslist.org/cto/2735444714.html

and im looking at about 600 bones to fit 3.73 gears, an auburn lsd, and the install kit.

I'm running MSIIv3.0 on a 4AGE, with Honda injectors, Ford EDIS-4 ignition, GSXR ITB's and a GM TPS. It's not hard to work with at all.
its all about passing the obd2 scanner check to get the inspection sticker in nys. we'll see. i would like to run a full standalone diypnp kit but it depends on whether or not i can get inspection stickers easily, which i think i can. or i have to register my truck as a 95 or older...which would take a bit of work...

I like your thinking on the rear end. Look forward to see some updates on that.

yeah, me too, its just so bitter cold out and im still doing work outside!

in the meantime, i'll do some xmas shoppin for myself

so im pretty sure i want to run drop spindles and beebani upper control arms. the drop spindles will put the rollcenter closer to stock and probably lessen bumpsteer, and the beebani control arms will let me dial in caster/camber. i just dont know which to get first hmmmmmmm

for the turbo, i still gotta get a manual boost control and an adjustable fuel pressure regulator, and some other odds and ends

and if its a nice day out one of these days im gonna take the steering box out of my daily
and put it in the HB. when i drive the pathy the steering is pretty quick, its gotta be a quicker ratio.
