    OK, just a few update pics, got the built TH400 with Art Carr reverse Manual Valve body and Art Carr gate shifter along with ORD 32 spline doubler outputting through High Angle Driveline go sticks. Oh yeah, just mounted 39.5's on Trail Ready bead locks to get power to the dirt. Can't wait to leave for Moab, still have to trim more of the front fenders if time permits, just hope nothing blows up, haven't had time to test yet.

    I can't get over how good your truck is looking. And to have all the toys to boot! Nice!

    Looks good Steve. Did you ever fix your NP205 problem with it jumping out of gear? Have fun, wish I could make the run - too much going on right now.

    What shifter is that? Oh...and you definitely need to trim off that extra stuff around the tires. They need to look a little more like these.

    Yeah, I washed it today for the first time since Easter Jeep Saffari, yunit, that is how I am going to trim the front just haven't had the time yet, the shifter is an Art Carr gate shifter. The pics hide a lot is all I can say, it doesn't look that clean, white is very forgiving. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Oh, yeah, had the y-pipe moved from under the front drive shaft to over by routing it under the oil pan and around the other side, the old one was pretty flat.

    Steve,

    Can you get me a couple of pictures of your transfer case crossmembers that show a little more detail?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    <font color="green"> Very nice! I'm very envious of your truck /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif . Is there a reason you don't have the speedo hooked up? I guess if you don't drive on the street much it wouldn't matter... </font color>

    Thank's guys, the speedo is hooked up, I have a 1990 (first year elec speedo) so I had to have Donovan machine the tailshaft for the VSS (below the old cable unit), the speedo you see is the old cable unit that is no longer needed.
