    BryGuy is who owns that and he's a member here and PBB. Bottom of that write up is a link to his company that sells Mog axles.

    Rob Bryce has built some pretty cool stuff over the years...including a home built version of a Klune V doubler/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    If you poke around on BC4x4.com you'll also find a write-up he did on his TTC experience. It's a good read, some interesting first hand perspective on the whole deal.

    This propane conversion sounds very interesting. Does anyone know what all is required to convert a gasoline 350 to propane? Would it be possible? Would it be practical? Just curious.

    $400cdn gets you everything but the tank, all rebuilt good stuff. cheaper then a good carb
    OHG is the way to go
    you will lose some power if you dont bump the compression up
    the motor will last longer without the carbon abrasion of gas burning
    oil looks clean when it comes out at change interval
    uses a Holley base plate IIRC so that could be a minor snag to quadrabog manifolds
    a friend of mine used to work in a conversion shop.
    it is rare but you can get a really clean install that doesnt look like Dr Frankenstien did it, his always looked near factory.
    they used to cast their own dual carb intakes for converting 460ford motors.
    He has helped a few guys do dual mixer 454 setups.
