I can understand Clays frustration with having to redo all his great work on the diffs and the 2.0 suzuki motor conversion.On my first trip out I decided to drive into a swamp that was 5ft deep and only 500ft from camp.I should of known better after winching a truck on 54s out of the same hole who had hydrolliced his motor .Both of us got towed back to camp and during the tow I decided that I wanted a supercharged motor and atlas trans and power glide.I think I had one km on the build before Clay basically has to redo everything to fit the cobalt motor ,power glide and atlas.This now is the SAMs third build and it's looking better than ever.

Like droop, flex, smooth transitions over hard fast bumps and so on.  So

In the garbage. Bye bye intermediate shaft, shitty drive shaft angles and close quarters. Ahhh it felt so good. Like taking a big dump after eating a 60 oz steak. A huge relief.

I went through all the motor mounts and bored holes in them, shaved them and dropped a couple pounds. No need to add any more than I have too.
