Welp just made a deal for this one. Flying down to Vegas to drive it home next Wed. Christian said you were kicking the tires on it too @lelandEOD :) Glad you didn't buy it!

I already ordered my ARBs and factory locker switch and some other must haves for me. I passed on a ton of them because I wanted something that already had pretty much everything I would want (so I didn't end up neck deep in another project truck!). This one is literally perfect for me.

NICE! I lusted over that rig too. In the end, I just decided I wanted to start from scratch and not have to mess with retrofitting the smog equipment.
Let's get together next week and crawl around them.

Yeah I know a guy a guy (@reklund5) who can help with the smog equipment if I decide I want it. :) I just ordered my RTT for it and am hoping it arrives before the overnight trip in March!


You want me to head up to your place after I get back with it?

That thing looks super nice! Great buy Tony. I'd love to check it out when you get it back if I'm available. You know being new to this 80 game I'm still soaking it all in.

LOL. Same... Lemme help make things worse for you. :rofl:

23% lower crawl gear upgrade
Compound low "blackbox"


Combining those with 4.88 gears (and the 2.95 first gear) can get you a final crawl ratio of 84:1. Comparing that to factory 30:1 final crawl and you can get a massive improvement for crawling. I am calling NWFab today to see if I can still buy the black box.

Um... Yeah, of course!

Coool! Waiting impatiently for the check to finish "processing" I used to work in the banking industry and know that it doesn't actually take 3-5 business days for checks to clear. ACH processors deposit all the monies from Monday into high risk/high yield stocks for a few days, make some millions and sometimes billions off it, then send the deposits into the owner's checking accounts on Wed or Friday... Basically they steal investment money from us for 3-5 days. Drives me nuts!

Yup, like most things we’ve allowed into our banking system, it’s a complete racket.
