Re: AX-15 + NP-242, Revisited

One thing to keep in mind is that the front output on the NP242 sits back about 1/2" from where it does with a NP231. I had to get a longer driveshaft due to fixed length LCAs at a relatively low lift height.

I am considering a swap to a 242. How high is your lift? I am on up country springs.

Apologies for the delay. I'm at about 3.5" with IRO fixed LCAs, adjustable UCAs.
