For those interested in how the gears do on and off road, the 4.88s cruise at about 2300RPMs at 70MPH, and off road they are crawl amazingly. Going up a steep hill last night, that was wet and muddy, I needed very little throttle and wasn't spinning tires. The jeep just chugged slowly and steadily up the hill in 4lo.

It does look good doesn't it? I thought about posting a dry, old looking one, so as not to make you feel bad it was only an e-cookie, but that one looked too good.

That is AWESOME brother, I'm currently saving up for the swap and shopping for axles. Gonna maybe go with a D60 front and a D70 rear. Of course there will be a lot of other upgrades w/ that. "Aint nothing to it , but to do it," is what I like to say. Went to Strawberry last Sunday and drove over the pass. Sweet, and yes w/ the TJ. I still havent wheeled the KJ since the Frankenlift. It keeps frowning @ us when we leave without her. :cry: Painted rock was a tight pinch and that trail is washed out pretty good. A little more than last year. :shock:

There was'nt alot of snow. But some patches. It was gorgeous wheeling. We didn't take alot of pics either, as we went alone. We did bump into another couple in a sick YJ from martinez. [img][img]http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h7/wendykreissig/PhotoLibrary-0038.jpg[/img][/img]

I wonder if the trail is still that clear. I really want to get revenge on the boulder in the middle of the trail at the Painted Rock obstacle. I got high centered last time through and needed a tug. Shouldn't be an issue now though. :wink:
