Ya and lots of guys love running an Aussie up front. Spartan and a TC swap will be nice and much cheaper!

Sounds like a 242HD is the way to go. Although changing the input shaft isn't that big of a deal in order to use any old 242. I imagine stretching the rear a little with adjustable LCA's and the 6" lift will make up for the longer tail shaft, as far as drive shaft length goes.

I do have the quicker disco's. Haven't had any issues with them, but they are a little messy.

Trimmed the rear fenders today. Thanks to 85IrocZ-28 for all his help and the central location for us to meet. If 801DubJay didn't have me parked in, I would be sporting a new set of 35's.



More pictures to follow...

Your lines turned out very clean today, and the 35 looked happy on there!

You should have come out to check out the progress. I am sure Matt can point you in the right direction now though.

But that means I would have had to sport a delightful set of 33" TSL's

Started cleaning up the rear fenders for paint and sealing this morning.



And figured while I was at it, I should look at remounting my rear bumper so it stops flapping in the breeze, tuck the tank and do something about the canister behind the bumper.

Nice, tank tuck will be cool. I need to do that soon.

Chris I moved my canister when I did my tank tuck. I moved it up under and above the side of the a-arm. I am going to move it again and just put it on top of the gas tank in-between that and the flat piece of sheet metal I have to cover the hole.
