1 thought...

What about the front diff. Its seem really open to take some
punishment.


While Calmini has the skid for the diff. but does not have the
shocks or the upgraded steering, which SLR has.

Calmini is 1700 Vrs. SLR 3500
I most likely could take the other 1700
and buy PRG shocks and TC UCA's and still have money left
Don't get me wrong SLR looks really beefy steering knuckle and othe parts. It looks like calmini sub frame may better built for hard trail impacts. Your going to loose ground clearance with Cal. but i would rather loose that, then a front diff.

what kind of wheels are on that?
KMC enduro's... BFG AT 285/75
I'm pretty sure they are actually 305's. At least that's what Josh at SLR told me.

Yes a shrock bumper would work with that package. I have heard, but I don't remember where (probably Ponyboy), that the shrock front skid would mount up to the new X-member.

As for front diff protection they won't leave it exposed. They will provide a skid.

305 is the width. So those could be 33" tires, just very wide.

But to be honest, you don't really "need" new gears to run bigger tires, you just won't have the same gearing as you would with stock tires.

did they use spacers for those kmc enduros, or is that a wheel that fits our x?

also, is it a 16" or 17" wheel?

sorry for all the questions

tires are sized by a section width and then section height as a ratio

so a 285/75R16 the section width is 285mm wide and the height of the sidewall is 75 percent of the section width

so a 285/75/R16 is the same height at a 305/70/R16 you can even check it out on tirerack.com they have specs on tires in inches. Also keep in mind that different manufacturers will have different heights and widths regardless of labels.

Hope this helps

Correct, I understand that and I can even do the math for you. My point being, just throwing out the number of 305 doesn't mean the tire is any taller, just wider. You have to have the exact size.

Or you could use this calculator. :)

Or, you can do that. :)

For the people who are bored and feel like doing it by hand.

Plug the numbers into this formula.

XXX/YYRZZ

XXX = Wheel Width in mm

XXX / 25.4 = Tire Width in Inches

YY = Aspect Ratio of Tire Width vs Tire Height

ZZ = Wheel size in Inches

(XXX * 0.YY) * 2 / 25.4 + ZZ = Tire Height in Inches

So

285/75R16

Width = 285mm or (285 / 25.4 = 11.22~")
Height = (285 * 0.75) * 2 / 25.4 + 16 = 32.83~"

Just for kicks, the sidewall height would be;
Size Wall Height = 8.415~"
