    Its in the garage waiting to go to its new home under the k5. Need to call tomorrow and order my ORD crossover arm. Started cleaning it up tonight then I popped the diff cover to check out the internals and determine gearing and when I tilted it to the drain the oil it fell off the stands onto the floor and into the oil pan /forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif Too heavy for me to lift one side at a time back up on the stands haha. That thing is heavy. Last time I was on a leg press machine I managed 350lbs(I'm little) and my legs were buckling trying to lift this damn thing.

    yeah my back hurts fighting it back up on the stands. But I figured out the gearing is 4.10 which matches my 14 bolt. I will leave it like that till spring I guess. 39s and 4.10s will be interesting.

    yeah it will work for me, will still be better than my 32s and 2.73s. But I want to start really trail riding and crawling so lower gears are on the list.

    I run 4.10's with a 465 and 39.5 boggers works good for me.
