4.10s.......;)

It's also 7.00 x 7.00 x 1.96 x 4.10 = 393.764:1 crawl......(if both are in reverse):eek::laughing:

It NEVER was an issue of practicallity, it was because I was told I couldn't do it.

heheh don't let ME stop ya... I once tried to see how many levers I could stuff into an M715, without being unnecessary:
1.tranny shifter
2.1st twin stick
3. 2nd twin stick
4. 203 shifter
5. front PTO lever
6. rear PTO lever
7. front PTO winch engagement
8. rear PTO winch engagement
9. left cutting brake
10. right cutting brake
11. rear steer lever.


I've done away with the PTO levers for now. :D

Love this build man, and hell of a doubler. How long is your rear shaft after that?

less than 24"

3-4" shorter than stock.
I believe it works out to about 29"

For what it's worth, I've run this before in this truck(below) and it never bound up at all, Just run a center limit strap.

Speaking of, got the shifters pretty much in, just have to paint/tighten and add my breaker bar handles(been in every truck I built)
Plan is to throw all this in tomorrow.

Hey spider. Nice work. I'm pretty sure we're in the same area because I've seen your other build on the local boards. When this thing comes together we should go for a wheel. I wanna see it in action. Oh ya I run a pretty capable shortbox. PM me when it's goin (JP on the local boards)
Yup, you're out in Sooke right? Should be running right away, I'm still in the shop working right now(2:40am.......)and it should be driveable tomorrow. Hoping to go wheeling in the next couple weeks. I'll let you know man.
Got the trannies done, and decided last minute that we needed a big bad truck for advertising the local tough truck competition........Mine got voted and the 35's just weren't gonna cut it. So, whats the logical thing to do?:smokin:


I'll let the pics talk.......

The trannies are working awesome so far, I'll have pics once I sort through them, but I have to assume the auto I pulled out was fubared, cause this motor has loads of torque, and burnouts on 49's ROCK............Driveshaft had to be picked up from throughout the shop and across the street, but it was cool:smokin:
Hey spidr, u should save a couple of these pics for one of those "will 33's fit with my 6" lift" threads!:laughing::grinpimp:

Really though, the rig is turning out awesome man! For some reason I always try to keep up with your projects!:smokin:
So I got a few installed pics, if anyone wants a specific pic let me know and I'll grab it.

Nearly perfect smooth belly, the belly pan was flush to the frame, but I had to drop it and inch for the rear shaft. Pics pretty much show the rest, I'm working on a remote shifter from on here, and borrowing the high angle 1480 idea from someone.......on to pics.

Belly skid/crossmember out of truck, trans/t-case have 4 poly bushing mounts(end of trans, end of trans, pto on 2nd trans, and side of 205) I still have to chain down the pto on the 205.



Installed pics tell the story.

SWEET! I love it man.


I just put tons, crossover, and 39s under my K5 after completely destroying the rear 10 bolt on 36s. It works a little better now. I'm on roughly ~6" of lift, but am certainly looking to go bigger in tire size after I wear these out; this is great inspiration.
Started on the tube flares and mudflaps, still need to be sheeted, but they will be removable, the bracketry will brace the bodywork.
