Will, yours are on the way, I got the check today. I took all 5 of them off and will take them to Max's house. He is gracious enough to take them to the Melt, and Billy Bob will pick them up, provided no one sees how great they are and throws them on for the weekend.

The pics of mine are attached. The one on the left is the 29" Swamper that Will just bought, the next is the 32" Swamper I just got (I bought 5 of them), and the right is my 33" Swamper I run on the Scrambler.

Yes, the 32's are siped, and a nice job as well, I bet they'll grip like mad.

Just so psyched, I had to post it!

I think they'll be the perfect size, they measure just under 32" tall, wereas the 33's measure over 33" tall.

I never destroy tires like that, they cost too much. In fact, unless the trail is close, I'm putting these in the back and changing at the trail head, I don't like wearing Swampers out on pavement. For close trails, I'll just run them.

Sorry, no T-90/D20 combo's up here, unless you buy the whole Scout (which is what most people selling them say to you). Why the T-90/D20? The D20 has a centered rear output, not offset like the D18.

Why not run with something different, like the T-150/D20? They had the same crawl ratio and were much stronger. If it's a length thing, look for a T-18/D20 from a Jeep, they came in 4:1 or 6.32:1 first gears. Then the T-176/D300 would be a nice swap, a 4:1 first and 2.62:1 transfer, along with strength. So many options, so little time.

price n availability, seems like nobody wants to use the ol t90/d20 combo, they all want the stronger stuff. for me, its a size thing, the t90/d20 is a COMPACT lil unit. prolly the cheapest too. do you know how much larger those others are man? i have had willys for years, know the t90/d18 is a """TOUGH""" lil unit. folks are still hookin small blocks to them. $$$$$ helps determine things right now for me too.

Problem is very few (and I mean few) jeeps came with the T-90/D20, they all had the T-90/D18. The T-150 is Ok, they used them in the CJ-5's, which were similar in length to the Zuk's. The extra 3" wheelbase was due to the straight 6 motors that came in them. They are heavy though. The best source for that setup is the older Scouts. I have a friend that just swapped out his T-90/D20 behind his 225 Buick for a T-18/D20, I can see if he's willing to sell it. The T-18/D20 was about the same length though, pehaps an inch or so longer.

its the size of the tranny/tc combo that i am concearned with. i just want the smallest i can find. makes things easier, dont have to stretch the wheel base as much then. prolly have to with 38s anyways, but the less, the better. will at least still look like a samurai. would appreciate you checkin on that unit for me. any idea on shipping on it? those monsters are heavy. 37879 zip here.
thanks

I'll call tonight, if I can get it, maybe if you throw Max a few bones ($$$), he'll lug it west for you with the Swampers. He's a generous guy, but I don't know if he's that generous and I don't want to speak for him.
