If you don't mind me asking?
How much did your re-gear cost you?
Did you just send/take them the pumpkin?
For me I can only find one place that will do it for 3000$ but only if I buy the gears and bring them the hog head?
I am still trying to find a replacement rear end without much luck?
Just looking for opinions.
I am going Monday to look at some 10r22.5" rims to replace my 9r20 tubed ones but with my rear end at 6.50 it is not going to make much of a difference except maybe from top speed of 49 to at least 54?
What rear end do you have now? Is there an id tag still on it? If not take a picture so we can see what you have. Unless its some odd ball axle, it should be just a simple pumpkin swap. That's what I did. Pulled the third member out and took it to them, and exchanged it for theirs. Only thing different was I had them pull out my locker, and put it in the 4.10 gear third that I bought from them. I would say you should find one in the $500-1000 range with exchanging for yours. If it were me, I would get your axle/gears figured out before you buy tires. It might make a difference on what you find. As far as $3000, I would hope you get an entire different rear axle for that kind of money.
Sanded down the hood. Added a couple new holes. The front one will just blow on the engine. That will add some new fresh air into engine compartment. I'm hoping that will help some of the heat coming through the fire wall into bus. The second hole in the back of hood is plumbed over to the air cleaner.
