    Hey John,
    Didn't you say those con rods weighed like 125lbs each? Are those are made by BRB, supposedly a 9" stroke, but really comes out as a 3" stroke. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Yeah, they are similar to Wakesha and Clark. Company is called Ajax. Two stroke engines. Conn rods weigh about 125 lbs apiece. The flywheels weigh two tons each! As far as puttin' in your truck, you first have to modify your frame to account for about 20,000 extra pounds /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Bryan, yes Tyler is the proud owner of the Suburban /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    Krennan, I see you're in on the haps in the "non 4x4" forum /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif You're right, I guess BRB would be considered a "de-stroker" /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
