Just sent/donated $1,000.00. The mule is going to be even more of a beast.

Saw this: http://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/pts/3625776849.html Hmm......I think I'll give 'em a call. It's geared right, but it looks as if it doesn't have a locker/Detroit in it.

convert the drums to discs and that'll save you 100 lbs right there. then aggressively shave the center section and you'll be a pimp!

glad you made a sell. The trend right now is Savvy stuff but they aren't cheap. I am a fan of stubby bumpers with a built in grill/stinger.... comb craigslist, you'll find something for sure. It's tax time, everyone is selling and buying...http://sandiego.craigslist.org/ssd/pts/3656031530.html

Detroit for a 14 bolt is cheap and easy to install, goes inside the stock carrier

I plan on building my own. I'm going to start on cutting up the template pieces out of cardboard tomorrow when I get home. I just need a stock front bumper to be "legal" in the mean time.

I have a bumper sitting in the yard if you want to borrow it. Some sort of cheap aftermarket.

I'll let you know Jeff. I'm going to dig through my house/garage/shed again to see if I can find my stock bumper. I'm not sure if my pops threw it away or not.

Joe attained pimp status a long time ago. That ride home last night froze your brain.

if you end up with that, and you decide to go the route of the 13bolt,
I may know a guy that can turn down the ring gear for you.

and if you can't find a buyer for your 8.8 whole, I'll see what I can scrounge up for the locker and super 88 kit

Good stuff. I've been looking at potential upgrades and read through the 14B on Pirate.

Yep, things to help save some weight & add clearance would be on the list.

I called the guy. He's going to confirm the ratio & call me back tomorrow.

Price seem in the ballpark & he mentioned its negotiable.
