^ haha

yeah i got the same to figure out. i got a start on my axles. but i also want to do a bit more to the 302. But i think first on the big list is finding a dd car and then let the chopping begin. I'm going to be doing mine slowly but as fast i can to make it not as bad of a hit to my pocketbook. I'm hoping by end of summer or in the fall. but i'm gona be going leafs i think.

Yeah, D44 or D60 if you're really going to thrash it hard. Definitely 4.88 or higher for an auto and at least 5.13 for a manual.

Haha... wow... I've got over 2K in just my 9". Haha...

$700 ARB Locker
$200 5.13 Gears
$100 Install Kit

Plus another 1k in the 44, and I haven't even started on the suspension yet.
