Default Modification list thread!

I am going to start a thread here so that you can list your modifications you propose to do to your rig. Don't delete the item once you finish it, just make it as "DONE"

It will give the new guys a good "yard stick" to measure their progress, and might give the older timer more motivation to finish his crap (yes I am talking about myself). this thread will be stickied so that it does not get buried.

I am not sure how successful we will be on keeping it organized, but DC and Brinner, feel free to delete any post you feel too far off topic (just give reason for doing so).

Good idea Bear. I may start one for the GA board.

The way I see it, is if you propose this list and "x" month down the road have nothing done, it will motivate you to do it. And as you are doing it, it will show how long its taken to complete each item.

I know Im having motivational difficulties these days.

EDIT: Dont wanna clog your mod thread with chatter but yes I lurk everywhere :P

Anyone besides Jason have any progress?

I have been working on my truck but more in the realm of repairs than modifications.

Crosby where is your list? Other new guys, this is a good place to get your projects in order!

Nice list of mods there, will be highly impressive when you are finished.

I have to ask, what type of purpose are you building for? It sounds from that list that you are looking to run more of the desert type of terrain.

I have to admit, I catch myself over in the desert folder on the national board all the time. I really like the way they design their trucks and it just sounded like that was what you were building yours toward.

I am in the progress of working on three of these projects currently, while also working on getting the truck running again.

I know Derek is going to kill me and dont know what i was thinking when we talked about it, but you are going to want to go 5.29s with the auto and 35s.

Sorry for any confusion i may have caused and hope you haven't ordered the 4.56s already.

http://www.grimmjeeper.com/gears.html

this is a good tool for figuring out what gears you will want, one side put in what you have then on the other put in what you want and see where it matches up at.

I figured it for my truck 37"s, 5spd, and 4.88s; and your Auto, 5.29s, and 35s and there are damn close.

Jeff had his front diff with 4.88 out of his buy back truck and, i have the spare 3rd with 4.88 for the rear! so i think he is going with the 4.88!
might find that it kicks out of overdrive on the hills but other then that shoulbe be good
