Re: Max hillclimb degree

Re: Sifu-Lux's Project Dual Transfer Case

if u dont get the front tires in a bind, u shouldnt have too many problems.

Re: Sifu-Lux's Project Dual Transfer Case

you are gonna love the dual ultamints, thats what i have in my 1985 toyota with 4.37 axle gears
what axle gears do u have, and what size tires?
u might want to also upgrade your front axle shafts (birfs) all of the added torque will bust them real qiuck.
i broke 9 birfs on 33's in one year
