    Your Break-Over Angle (BOA) is 29.69 degrees!

    These numbers dont mean crap though...
    There's things that other k5's like borrogo's (sp) can do way better in the flex dept, but he may score lower or higher?

    Not a good representation if you ask me...

    I had to guess on the T-case clearance cuz the truck isn't here to measure.

    How is your rig coming along? did you have a lifted steering arm from you D44?

    also, why did you decide to go to the 6.2?

    I decided on the 6.2 cuz I wanted to not have problems at weird angles anymore. My 350 was showing it's age so I had to develop a plan. A rebuild and FI conversion was too spendy, propane was another option but tank location killed that plan. I got a great deal on a 6.2 that was pulled out in favor of a 350...the kid likes mud.

    The diesel makes sense for me and the wheeling I do. It makes as much or more torque as my 350 did but it does it at 1800 RPM instead of 4000. It should nearly double my fuel mileage (my truck is still a daily and will be for a long time) and with the 4 speed should crawl really well. The best part is my stiff Rancho front springs may actually work well with that much motor up front... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    The truck is sitting in a barn right now minus it's drivetrain. I have a new bellhousing and T-case adaptor going in. The 6.2 swap in progress, the D60 going under the truck finally and A-tron's proto-type anti wrap bar. Did I mention the rear disc brakes?

    The only thing that sorta sucks is I just got laid off from my job again on monday night... /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    So, I now have the time to work on my truck, but financially the last thing I should be doing is spending extra money. I have 90% of the parts I need to get it together but it's all the little detail crap that's gonna make it interesting to afford to do. I don't want to 'half-ass' anything...

    Oh yeah...I'm installing this really wicked steering block I got on the D60. Some really nice guy just up and gave it to me... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    How's your truck coming along? Get all the cross-over bugs worked out?

    You know, I've always longed for an online tool written by a complete stranger that reduces my truck's offroad prowess to a nice easy to understand number. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Your Break-Over Angle (BOA) is 25.84 degrees!

    This is in the configuration that it will be in once it omes out of the garage... </font color>

    It's hard to say i was honest because the truck is in pieces right now...so I used the new junk that's going on for the rig rating.
