Alright now dammit, if there one thing to be learned from this post, its dont drink beer and make posts on Off-road.com After I got to some serious thinkin, I saw that the NV4500 is only .375" longer than the 465, and advance adaptors doesnt call for a new adaptor, and they have all the stuff that the swap calls for. SO, after careful deliberation with my inner self, I think that regearing the axles to about 4.10 or 4.56 and the NV4500 would be a wiser avenue of action. BUT, I want to keep my existing stick, boot and B&M shifterhandle that I have in there now, because I love the look. So does anyone know how I might go and do that? Maybe I can cut it off and have the bottom of it tapped and threaded. Thanks for your feedback guys.
