What with the shorty gear shift? Isn't that a pain to reach that far down?

Oh, and the last pic reminds me of the beginning of Willy Wonka.

swapped in a 4.0/aw4 a couple months ago... i'm a lazy bastard.... the "shorty shifter" is a "no shifter".... i have to get underneath her and shift into 4WD by pushing or pulling the lever on the side of the tcase that's on the list of things to fix this winter.... along with a lot of other swap-related things that i was too lazy to finish....

-Erik <--- wishes gear oil smelled like chocolate

Having a full top and doors would save you 1/2 of your clean up time!!! IMO mud is great on the OUTSIDE of my jeep, but im not into mudding without the top/doors on. Too much to ruin and clean IMO!
