lol, ...oh yeah, Im 4WD. I wouldnt own anything else, because if Im not in a 4WD, I am in a FAST CAR, and that means I am in TROUBLE. Due to the limited number of cops to observe me doing stupid crap off-road, I prefer 4WD these days. I value that driver's license, and I hate fines. I must have bought at LEAST two new NJSP police cars with the fines Ive paid. ....Not since I went 4WD, though.
I scoured the junkyard today, and I actually had my eye on a D44 in a loaded late 80's laredo limited something, (mustve been a beauty in its day, Woodgrain paneling in and out, full power and options, towing package, big alternator (I scored it) and I reckon It might've been up country)......but I saw it a month ago, went back today...AND IT WAS GONE. (I had actually piled doors and crap around it to hide it for myself. Dammit!
....So, the next best thing. A 29 spline eight and a quarter with limited slip. I was planning on regearing to 3:55s anyway, because I am on 31's with 3:07 gears, 5 speed, and a 99 intake with a bored TB (high RPM, highway-friendly induction system).......... So, . Ive got NOT MUCH for power down low right now, and I gotta spin the whole mess up to 3000 RPM just to get it moving anyway. Great on the highway though. 2100 RPM at 75 MPH with plenty of power there and 23-25 MPG!!!
Cant wait to get some meat on the ground, and a set of 3:55s might get me back in the neighborhood without buzzing the motor too much.
