One more on the snow bank. It is kinda sluggish in high range with the 4 banger and 5.13s with the 37s. But low range is pretty nice. Let the wife drive it around and she has not stoped smiling since. Trans did not have reverse at first and would not shift outa second. After i run it and got it nice and hot it started to. I think there was some grease built up in it from the rebuild. seems to work great now.

First, That is a nice build, looks like a well built machine, except for the 4 banger

Though it is just another jeep...those things are like rabbits, no matter how many get killed theres always 10 more to replace it

Not too bad on the road. I only ran it about a mile or so. Rides like a jeep. I kinda over shocked it but it seems to handle the corners fairly well. Needs a sway bar for when the wife drives it on the road. I dont think she will like the welded rear.

And mr waveman. I have had lots of other wheelers. This is my wifes.

It drives pretty good also. I still need to adjust the trac bar mount and draglink due to a slightly different angle but i did not notice any thing real bad yesterday on the drive.
