Default SF Muddin

Bout the truck:
'99 2wd XLT 3.0. Like all 2wdrivers, I'm constantly searching for ways to expand my offroad capabilities. Truck came stock, I threw up some 31x10.5x15 BFG A/T KO's. I return from a 3 month training deployment with the USCG Reserve in July and will purchase a locker for the rear (and only ) differential. Im lookin at the Powertrax No Slip traction system locker due to price, and it looks a bit more advanced than the lock rite. At times, I need to drive very fast on the highway, and seek to do so in a safe manner. For this reason, I am reluctant to lift the truck any more than the larger tires already done; I am more concerned with traction than clearance. Even without the locker, this baby does f****n great for a 4x2! but then again i usually got enough girls in the bed to provide sufficient weight for RWD traction
Bout me:
Atmospheric/Ocean sciences student, seaman in the USCG Reserve. I spend as many nights in my truck as I do in my bed, always prefer a sleeping bag. I've got a great carpeted snug top and bed rug, the shell is sealed to the cab with a boot, and Ive weatherproofed/insulated the tailgate channels of air flow. I figure the truck has already paid for itself by providing a safe place for me to sleep after a night at the bar to avoid a DUI. Ive recently been trailin an muddin a lot more after I moved back into my parent's house; I dont like bringin girls home... So please, any mod/performance suggestions, off road or paved, are greatly appreciated. And anyone well versed in diff locker applications please holler as well. Thank you for help, and KEEP RIDIN, RANGERS!
