Well if you end up wanting some more room we could always trade t-cases. I'll even throw in a case of beer to sweetin the deal. Lol

Yeah four to one is nice in the rocks, but in the sand it's too low and high range is too high. Luckily I don't really like Silver Lake, or at least not all the morons that seem to over-run the place.

is there a bushing between the tranny and the cross-member? I didn't see one, wasn't sure if it was just the angle of the pics.

Any fear of trans cracking? I've been planning on doing the same setup but have been reading of people having problem with cracking trans. I am going to run poly bushings on motor mounts and use poly mounts by frame on crossmember like you did. Wondering if it will be too stiff and when frame flexes it will be too hard on trans with not enough flex from poly mounts.

Run a poly mount at the trans. The case will crack if you hard mount the tran and bushing at the frame..

Yes. Definetly didnt solid mount it. I ran the poly bushings at the frame connections and a 5/8" thick piece of rubber i found at work under the trans and it has been working fine.

So i decided that it was time for some gears. I already had an 8.8 and a hp dana 30 that i had got and was saving for this reason. But after breaking an axle shaft i thought that maybe dumping a grand into a dana 30/8.8 combo was a mistake. So i found this bad boy on craigslist and my mind was made up.
