Only thing I do miss is high RPM clutch drops. I dont feel the auto is as responsive as I want it to be. Maybe a shift kit would help with this.

I run a 2.28 front and 4.7 rear with 5.29's on 39.5's. Other than its kinda fun/cool to crawl at such a low ratio I dont think it will ever be needed.

I do a lot of snow weelin and a big tranny cooler was definitely a must for this setup.

Couldn't agree more.. although I've only got one run on mine so far I really like it. You might try the transgo shift kit.. I put that in mine from the get go so I've no personal experience without but Rory at RADesigns highly recommended it.

is everyone using the Winters shifter with RADesigns adapter? I'm using the factory pistol shifter and some homemade electronics. I'm eyeing the RAD/Winters setup though.

I run the stock shifter for going between P,R,N,D. Then have the RADesign Rail 2 to select the gear. I like how small and compact it is.

Ill see if I can remember to grab a pic tonight. Due to my dual case setup my T-case sticks are back about 6" from stock, I built a plate to cover the original hole and incorporated the Rail 2 into the plate so it sits right next to the stock unit.

Rail Controller this is the controller I use. Seems to be a good quality unit.

I've got the Winters/Rad shifter w/the RAD triple sticks.. I've heard good things about his rail controller as well.
