Re: Jeeps top heavy ?

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] You know,.....we used to have a truck with WAYYY too much power, and WAYYY too many low gears such that whenever an inexperienced dummy got in it and got stuck, he would blow the driveline between the brownie and the main box. The shaft would then beat the crap out of the GAS tank...this was a gasser....a big Dodge with a transplanted Chrysler in it. LUCKILY, the tank never blew up, but oh how I threatened to move it outside the frame....exactly where the GM pickups had theirs...away from the exhaust...away from behind the DRIVER'S SEAT(SUPER-DANGEROUS!)...and away from errant drivelines.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
