    alright i have some experience with them, mudbogAD's jimmy has one and when he had 35"s he could chirp em into 2nd. so how would it feel in a suburban? would it be less snappy cuz of the added weight? cuz i think adam's (mudbogAD's) shifts a little too hard personally. and i'm afraid that my flex plate would shatter if i installed one. so basically i'm asking should i put a stage 2 kit in my suburban?

    I had one put in my 73 3/4 ton 2 wheeler 463/Th400.
    I wish I had just went the stage 1.
    It was cool until I started breaking stuff.
    2 rear u-joints (1350 series)
    ripped out tranny mounts
    bent drive shaft
    I am all for a snappy shifting slush box but that one is just a bit to snappy.
    The first time the ol lady drove it and put her foot in she thought she had been rear ended when it shifted, LOL
