Your welcome Moose. Glad to have been of help.

Also, it was nice to have Roberto drop by as well.

Thanks Guys for all that info. Currently the plan is to go with a stock hp dana 30, hopefully get one Saturday morning.

I will get a "real" axle later on in life. I have a few(lots of) things that I need to do as well.

I think my biggest upgrade will be the refined motor control of my right foot.

just remember, listen to your idle. when it's about to die just tap tap tap the throttle. Just imagine not letting your tires lose traction AT ALL while keeping it as low an rpm as possible. If you stall out that's fine. Hit the brakes, start it up and tap tap a little harder.Never bounce and never do a wheelie unless you can set it down nice and slow. That's why its rock CRAWLING

Stalling? What's that? I just let my torque converter do the work
