Not to my driving style. Im sure with a controlled foot they would but I like the peace of mind when I hammer down. I probably shoulda just left em in it but I cant leave anything alone I guess.

Shocks outboarded. Links done. Coil buckets done. Be sitting on its on weight very soon.
Threw some junk swampers on it to check axle width differences. Come to find out H2 wheels don't fit D70HD Hubs. More machining.

I think the one I have is the first design from him that is no longer made. All in one that replaces the factory shifter. I like it but need to modify it a little to prevent shifting from 1-3 when I want 1-2, it has no gates from reverse to 3rd.

Looks good Shaun! Are you going to move the upper spring perches back while you are in there? If not, that would be my only suggestion.

Good call. Knowing you for some time - I am kinda surprized you didn't stretch it - or is that in the works too?

I might as well update the tread. Swapped in a 318/727 combo. Hucked on some 40in Trails. Wheeled it. Got bored and now Im on to the next thing. Pics of that soon. First are some of its current state.
