    Okay, I was reading in one of the mail order mags and saw something about a reverse manual valve body.I understand the manual part, but how the heck is it reversed? Also, my friend told me that my megashifter won't work with it because of the ratchet action. Is this true? Soo much confusion.

    That kinda thing is more for drag racing than it is for offroad. If you do mud running, it might make sense, but that would be about it.

    Well, if I got it, it would be for my "street" truck. I'd probably rarely take the truck out on a trail. It's gonna be my daily driver w/ no lift and 31s (maybe 33s sometime).
