You can still get the manual with lockers, sta bar disconnect, 4.7 FDR, and 33's on the Badlands series - in fact its the standard trans. That series can also be had with a very stripped out interior - wash out floors / marine grade vinyl.

Yeah I dont know enough about the 4l60/4l80 trans to comment on how much they can be built. I bought a 4l60 that claimed it was good for 500hp and put it behind a stock LQ4. Guess we will see in 100k miles.

As someone with a LS swapped FJ80 and someone who has owned a 100 series, I can tell you the LS is a better motor in terms of performance and a tie in terms of durability. Agree though that putting super charged stuff in these drivetrains is asking for something to break downstream.

Simple fix - just get some drum brakes.  David, kinda surprised you haven’t gotten them a rusty heap with some drums.

Yeah I really didn’t want to get new wheels, I wanted to use the stock alloys which are 16" - problem is only interco makes 37" tires on 16" rims and I didn’t want anything that aggressive/soft.

It’s an ancient blackhawk 4 ton lift. It probably weights 300lbs. Got it at a garage sale a couple years ago.

12.5 wide - 4" slee lift. Pretty sure they are going to rub at full stuff. Debating 6" of lift or maybe just 30mm coil spacers.

Meh, don’t care about the cosmetics on the frame that no ones ever going to be able to see.

Indeed - I should probably take the time to build out a Mud thread as I’m sure I will hit road blocks and need to ask some questions when I get back to work.
