Umm... Come drive my 5lugger.. Stock 2.7L with 31x10.5x15 tires and 3.33gears in rear end. NO I don't have power or torque anywhere, its slow as hell.

I would need 4.56gears to actually gain some power over stock...

For a mudder I would get a 80s Chevy 4wd pickup with a 350 and swap in a 502 with fuel injection.

Sell it and a buy 4L Tacoma. It sounds stupid and I'm not being a smart ass. I modified a few cars and two bikes. In the end, and during the times, I would have been better off buying an LT-1/LS-1, Evo or a 1000.
