the 4:1 case would definitely be nice.Well as usual life gets busy and I have a half-finished project in the garage. I did pick up the heater hose fitting I needed for the water pump as I ordered the hoses I needed. I should be able to pick them up this afternoon. I will probably be Sunday evening before I can do anything since I am camping with the family this weekend.
I did some recent Junkyard shopping and I found a couple of NP241OR (RockTrac) transfer cases in Rubicon Jeeps. I want to put eyes on them to make sure they are the rock trac t-cases but if they are I think I am going to pick one up. I also need to decide If I am going to swap to an automatic transmission or stick with the manual. More than likely, at least for now I am going to stick with the manual, just an old school feel for me.
Also I am in the works on designing and building a dedicated shop for me to work in. 40' wide by 25' deep with 12'ft walls (on the short sides).
Regardless more to come in the near future.
The shop sounds good too. High enough for a lift. I know my lift requires 12 1/2' so you might want to be sure it is tall enough if a lift is in your future. It is easier to address now.
