I bought my reverse torx when I did the tilt column bolts on the 91. I permanently locktited them so Doug doesn't have to worry about it.

I bought a Torx 'master set' at TSC on clearance years ago, it lives in my Jeep toolbox. It has all the regular Torx, plus the reverse torx and security bits. Comes in handy.

Craigslist and a lot of free time at the security job is not a good mix. Banks TransCommand for the SuperDuty will be coming soon.

Re: Important

For the buggy btw. Just found out my 60 front has 4.88s, not 3.55s. I was going to run 5.38s but if I can trade my 5.13 Eaton rear chunk for a 4.88 chunk then swap in a 4.1 kit in the 231. It might work till the 666.04L80/hero goes in next year(ish)...

Drinking and thinking sometimes makes sense

if you had displacement... id say its doable. "doable" being an arbitrary term. ive driven 4.88s on 35s and know that i want to be even deeper. alas, i am peddling a manual. a buddy also has 5.13s turning 37s on his K5... its a lot more tolerable.

for 40s and small displacement, id want a deeper crawl than that combo will give you. also look into a trans cooler.

id say run 4.88s. but with the knowledge that you want to put in a V8, dont dick with 4:1. the tera kit does not play will with high rpms, so if you do any mudding, dunes stuff, or plan to abuse a V8, it wont live. its a oil starvation issue (strait from teraflex's mouth).

with that said... look into a doubler that will work with your desired trans down the road. youll be MUCH happier. if you want bolt in... the strong box from behemoth caught my eye as an underdrive unit with your selected planetaries. what ever you do... youll be happy if you opt for something with something that gives you front and rear control.

talk to ho-bag. i believe his buggy had a doubler unit in it with 42s.

talk to ho-bag. i believe his buggy had a doubler unit in it with 42s.

I ran a doubler 231-300 both stock ratios w 4.10s and ax15. Pretty much left 231 engaged at all times and only used the 300 to crawl. It was damn near perfect. On 42s

I would not even call bohemouth, he lives about an hour from me and was damn near the worst dealings I ever had( search internet I am not the only one). I was planning on running and adding his stuff to my site and made it very clear to him that if I were to pimp his stuff he had to keep adequate inventory. Plan was for me to pay cost for my doubler run it for 6 months and then start selling for him. I paid and waited and waited and waited (6 months) never got anything. Requested money back and waited and waited and waited (about 3 months) then I called paypal to get my money back, of course it was past their "complaint period" so they were no help, ended up getting my money back from him in payments. His business plan is all wrong and is customer service sucks too. Yes I agree his shit is nice but you better be willing to wait or never even get your product.

Keep in mind I try to hold my tongue about other offroad vendors but this guy is someone to stay away from.

This may be my longest post(w/o pics) ever.
