    we are still rocking 4.10s in it. Between brother deploying and both of relocating to different states it got put on the back burner. Slowly getting it back together. Interior Cab Cage will be going in with new seats and harnesses. Right now we are chasing a clutch issue.

    Mine seened fine with 4.10 gears and stock tires. After the solid axle and 35s it was sluggish and stalled going up a trailer if not in 4 low. But was a tank in 4low. I did the timing chain, head gaskets, and valve adjustment. Still lackeing power. 5.29 gears seem to have fixed that. Tho i question if i have low power output still... o well its an off road only rig so no need or power

    Anyone have an issue owning retrofits and inspections up in Mass? Mass is so picky about vehicles, I just don't remember what flys and what doesn't anymore. Coming from Florida where as long as its got an engine and somewhat of a windshield you can drive it..

    Haven't gotten pulled over but I haven't tried to get an inspection yet. My buddy that inspects said if the have cut offs it should be fine, it's the people running HIDs in reflector bowl setups that get bothered. So I wouldn't think it's too big of an issue

    Appreciate the feedback. Was something I was looking into but wasn't sure if it was smart prior to moving back up north.
