I am using the Pro comp ones that come with the mounting can. I will post some more pics tomorrow on mounting them. So far very pleased with the quality.

Well, tried to drive it out of the shop after 1.5'' x 8'' ram assist and the the stock pump and reservoir. Ha, that didnt work. Barley made a couple full left and right turns and the dang thing puked all the fluid out of the reservoir while it was still running. I added the TG 1450psi pump and WOW, what a difference. I had no problems bleeding it and the increase power is awesome.

Time to upgrade my front Dana 44 diff cover. The stock one has held up ok. Getting some pretty good dents in it and the bolts are ground down to needing vise grips to remove. I also am going to add a ram to the steering and need something to weld to for the ram brackets. One phone call to Dan @ RuffStuff and it was here the next day! Thanks Dan/crew. A little de burring and some paint, add a sticker (provided in the box) and ready to install.

Now my front and rear diff covers match :thumbsup:
