Gotcha, that what I was wondering. I have read all of this, but must've missed the 11:1 part... I can see the rods being reccomended with the compression that high.

Nick knows more about the details than i do.

But like anything everyone builds them differently based on their own thoughts. I'm leaving this one for Nick to build, I trust he is making the best decisions for what I want.
Oh come on!!! If you got it apart and spending the money might as well do what you wanted to do! Get some cams/......Hell ya

it is only a bust because of my knee. I tore my ACL and ill be on crutches for over a month which doesnt give me much time to get down there and get my truck before the first dunes trip. Not to mention I have a ton of work that needs to be done to it here at home before any wheeling. Plus I am not sure I can walk in sand that soon after surgery. Or even get in and out of either one of my trucks. Just too many factors right now.
