    I bet you'll like it! I love mine even though I do no rock crawling and mostly city driving. Nothing like driving a standard and having control over it all! My friends dont understand and wonder how I drive it so much even with the caveman clutch. Its just something about a standard behind a V-8 you'll see!!!

    What? You think the hole is too deep? Lemme see...

    I think I know the guy who sold you the axles. He bought some tires from me a while back. Sounds like you got a good setup with the locker already in. Dude you rig is gonna be bullet proof after you swap all that stuff. Make sure to take some pics.. I wanna see!!

    I just bought an 82 Burb and was very stoked to find out it was a manual when I went to look at it! Love it!

    Mine is too! All I need is a clutch. I've got everything else. I'm saving my pennies!
