I just aquired this thing and I'm looking for advice. It already has a 6in lift and 35x14.5x15 tsi thornbirds a good strong 350 and a good 700r4 but everything else is a question mark so how about some suggestions on mods that would be effective for general wheeling and keep in mind that I drive this thing to work every day.
Depends on how hard you are on it may upgrade axles. Look at a 14 bolt rear end of sorts. Full floater is stronger but if you get a semi floater you an get it in 6 luig to match. I myself have had bac lucky with 700R4s and have gone through 4 before upgrading to a th400. Not saying you will have the same prob though.
Get an aftermarket tranny cooler for that 700. Perma-cool makes one for a class "A" motorhome that will fit. Costs about 60.00, takes about an hour to put it on, and will save you headaches from it burning up on the side of the road.
Get rid of those thornbirds and get anything else, just not more of those. I figure if we can get enough people to stop buying them then interco will see the mistake they made and stop production[img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img].
