Twin-Stick Bitch!

Radiator worked out great! Still haven't got around to the electric fans and dual pulley stuff but I did find more fun stuff to do. Front spool and 205 twin stick FO FREE!

NP205


Twin-stick NP205


New shift patterns


Installed


Pulled the front diff to weld up the spider gears




FRONT DIG!

Looks like your in no hurry in the video. How's your steering ?*flipoff*! Lol
front digs don't work in your advantage if you can't turn steering to full lock. When you decide to swap out to a Detroit you will never miss that ball of steel you got now for a diff! Although with spool it will climb the crap outta big hills .... Just In a straight line
