    This truck is very impressive. Its actually incorporated a few things that I was thinking about... Looks like back to the drawing board for me!

    why would you put the 203 in backwards? with a TH400 and a 205 your crawl ratio would be worthless. but you would have a BIG overdrive.
    %100 to be exact.
    but i dont see the point.
    nice truck other than that

    I'm going to have to guess that you didn't read the information... They are using the mog portal axles, which have a standard reduction of 7:1, they need the O/D to drive it on the street at speed.

    Is he really gonna run Fun Country's? I would think Boggers would be the tire. Even CUT Boggers.

    If I get into TTC, then I'm gonna try to borrow a set of 44" TSL's. 2 buddies have 'em.

    Hm. If they bail, can I borrow your Boggers, WhiteKnight? :-) You're running 16.5's, right?

    You're right, the truck isn't set up for TTC. That wasn't the intent. But I don't see why it wouldn't do well there anyway.

    Why Propane? Cheap fuel, run at any angle, cleaner burn.

    Yeah Rye Guy has my vote also. need to mail the stuff this week.
    I'm going to slide this post over to The Garage. Little better forums since this isn't really a repair question.
