No worries - was just curious because you were doing all the work. I’ve done all the combos as well, just don’t like the 3:73s off road so the H55 makes more sense with 4:11s. If you’re not taking it on the rocks that setup is perfect. Both transmissions are clunky as hell to be fair, but it adds to the tractor vibe :hillbilly:

No rocks in Florida or for Mustard. The tan 45 on the other hand…..

So, I'm not sure if I already shared this, but I thought I would let @jmlockwood know I chatted with the original owners and shared with them all the great updates you've made to their beloved cruiser. Also gave them the link to this thread.

They are over the moon with all you have done!

They're very happy to see that you are making it amazing!
Here is a quote from part of our conversation...

"Thank you, so much, Angelo. That looks amazing! We have wondered about the old cruiser. So glad It's in such a good place. Thank you for the update."

Just wanted you to know...
