the way i see it is.. you'll have time to go down the track, turn around and go back to the start line by the time i make it down once

by the time your done.. i'll probably be running 5.13s f/r and maybe be up on some 36s

he's got too much torque to know what to do with! haha

it just digs in, but either way that thing is sick..
the best part about old muscle cars, rangers, jeeps, off road rigs, etc. with diesels is that the whole time your watching the video your eyes and ears are completely confused

Gene is a god.

Steering is fixed:




And instead of making an all new tranny x member, he just modded the one that came with the truck. Nice!
