Being low is a trade off. I only had a problem once and that was on a vertical ledge and the combo of 105" wheelbase and the low belly would not even allow me to get up on it where I could try to gas it up. A little more WB or bellyclearance and I would have been able to do it. That said, that was the only situation I came up on this weekend that the rig did not spank.4x4Poet said:Congratulations! Looks even better on the rocks.
So, the belly is a little low for some of those protruding boulders? Why is the hood lut of alignment? Frame/tube flex?
I missed exactly what you mean regarding any need to narrow the grill to accommodate the front hoop.
Thanks for your confidence. I had 2 real near misses and the LT1 rescued me. If I had been running a manual tranny I would have lost it both times. One time would have really hurtEskimo said:As long as putting it on its side, but driving out of it does NOT count as a roll (I don't count that as really a flop if you drive out of it), I'll take you up on that...
You can pay me at the roundup :flipoff2:
I personally don't think there is an upgrade at this time over this axle. It is 315# soaking wet and bulletproof I bound it up like mad all weekend and it held up great.sleeoffroad said:Hi Nolan, I have first dibs on that axle and full hydro setup when you upgrade in January.
Probably not the wisest move I have ever made, but it worked out thank goodnessjbt said:Do you think it will last that long when he do the shakedown run with Dan Dibble

Then I can do a search for more info...
No, that is just too involved. I think it will look OK, but looks is the main reason I tried not to narrow it at all, but I cannot live with the front end performance as is just for 4" of grill/bezel.planb said:looks bad ass
glad the skake down went relatively trouble free.
if you narrow your grill, even by 3-4"
will you taper your bonnet as well ?
