If it's not charging, your battery won't turn the motor over.

Sounds like a corroded wire going to the battery. My '68 camaro did the same thing until I replaced all the battery cables.

In the rocks its fine, I can get up just about anything.... Remember I am running 4.0/AX-15/4.3 Atlas and 5:38 gears on 37s. Low range torque is not an issue

Fast stuff is a different story, and I am already looking into power mods that wont kill my wallet, or give me issues with CA smog emissions.

yes fan/shroud was all changed.... no more heating issues, unless I forget to flip the fan switch :/

4.0 and 5:38s is a little deep for street driving, but I can hold 75mph without screaming the motor too bad. WOuld love to have more power for the street on big grades and climbs though. Offroad everything is fine.

How about a turbo? Surely would help with the shopping mall speed bumps.
It's only money
