deepmud said:It's cool. He didn't make it work worse than stock off road, he engineered it to handle actual off roading ( note the sealed ammo box for the ecm ). If he didn't go where I would have , that is UP with bigger tires, that's ok. I like his engine install - tho' I would like to see a 4x4 tranny (shorter output shaft) with an adapter to marry a Toy t-case.
But like I said, I bailed on the gas v-6 and went turbo-diesel I-4.
Don't get me wrong, I wasn't in any way dissing or implying that *he* made it worse for off road, my point was more along the lines of: he didn't seem to go out of his way to make it *more* off road capable, when it's obvious he has the talents to do so.
I believe that his use of an ammo can was technically a more off roady mod, but IMHO think it wasn't
specifically "engineered" with this in mind, just a simple and effective solution to the requirements of needing a box to put stuff in, that was out of the cab and engine bay friendly. I would use one of those too, even if I was building a Ricer and had to put electronics outside the passenger compartment and was as attention-to-details as this fellow.
I wonder if anyone can reach this guy and get him to post stuff here? He would be a most welcome addition
