I stopped thinking about the money a long time ago, and am concentrating on just doing it right now. Just spent 240 on 3:73 gears and pinion from Randy's about 2 minutes ago. It just adds up.

As far as the cost, I rreally don't know. I bought the truck, and then WELL over 10K. I try not to think about it. LOL
kool that was the saying I was looking for. That's what it is now, but back in the 70's and 80's it was the other way I said earlier. I canceled my project today.

I was just curious because I canceled my project today because of that, and a couple of stupid bloggers on here who downs an idea before they even read what the idea is. they're closed minded I guess. I don't really know or care. Cost was about 95% as to why I canceled my project. If he's doing this he doesn't really want to know what he spent. Great Job diesel ranger.

Diesels, run better under a load. Lower gears won't help on a diesel, you actually slow down with say a 4:30 or 4:56 vs a 3:73 or 3:50's.

My truck this weekend laid down 581.35 HP and 998.23 Ft TQ on David dunbars Dyno at the TS races. Thats at the real wheels. My Nitrous kept blowing fuses, and it didn't make a full NOS pass ever. Fuel only it did 476.6 and 881.7 TQ. Not to shabby for off the shelf parts.

No I do not have the motor installed yet.
Picked up the new TCI 5R110 tranny that they built in a race application at the TS performance race this weekend. Brad Childs delivered it, and gave me instructions to try and break it. It looks sweet. Also got the new 2600 stall converter, all billet, and built to handle anything I can throw at it. These pictures do not do either of them justice. Thanks Brad!

Its a sponsored TC, and tranny. Thanks God for sponsors. TCI makes some of the best trannies out there, and they are trying to break into the diesel market. I just happen to have a high horsepower 6.0 that they want to test it with. They figure if I can't break it, the average guy should be ok.

Yeah that tranny looks beefy! I'm going to love seeing this project when its finished. I love diesels. I plan on getting a diesel as my next truck and keeping the ranger as a rig wheel.

Stopping is as important - if not more - than going fast!
