This is great.
Fully pressurized, too?!
I think my landlord would be cool with it.
I myself would like to know exactly what “typical vehicle operations” actually means.
Tell me this isn’t true.
I feel your pain. My Jeep J10 has a 2.72, but without a super short granny first gear. It’s not great.
Also, why do we say “2.75 rear end?” Like, the front diff has the same ratio. Maybe folks said it for their RWD trucks, and it stuck?
Yes, I forgot to mention this. Vans!

If it were me, I’d send your head in and have it checked for…
Sort of. I knew the drawbacks to using a toggle switch, but this was part of my original Moab build. The vision for that project was to get the Jeep into good enough shape to take on the trails of Moab, but for as little time and money as possible.
