What an absolutely gorgeous build. One on hand, I can't wait to see more. On the other hand, my foot is going to ache from going outside and kicking my own rig after seeing it!

WHAT?!? :eek:

I had no idea that they were ever put into any passenger vehicle whatsoever! Is that right?

Oops.. I wasn't clear re: LOW low. I meant the 5.61 1st gear of the NV4500 vs the 2.45 of the TF727!

Well, I suppose it is time to revisit this thread and offer some updates. I have now been driving the rig for about a year, so I have a pretty good handle on the likes/don't likes. Generally, I...

Man, those would be ideal if it weren't for my fender flares. I don't think there is a chance that they wouldn't interfere. I searched for "flares" in the reviews and someone mentioned that if you...

temporary towing mirrors

Does anyone have any recommendation for temporary towing mirrors that work well with our rigs? I have an 8' wide trailer that I can't see around. I would prefer not to replace the stock mirrors, but...

Thanks!

FYI, I am nearly 100% certain that it isn't a tire thing. It is a really noisy metallic sound and if I pop it into neutral it immediately goes away. When I have either heavy torque or no...

I don't currently have a front shaft that is good and cut to the right length. I picked one up off this board that is slightly too short. I wanted to flesh out this idea because if it is viable, I...

For a little backstory, I actually did this swap in the Ouray KOA one night this summer at the FSJ Invasion. I got the 208 from an old J truck at a junkyard, and pulled the rear shaft from it too. ...

Are splines on front/rear of np208 the same?

Since I swapped in my 208, I have a harmonic vibe issue when I am > 50mph and I let off on the accelerator removing torque from the drivetrain. I am not sure why it didn't show itself with the 229...

Ha! Yes it was.

No, the axle swap had nothing to do with weight. The weight of the 4BT is only around 745 while the 360 is right at 600. The difference is no more than a small passenger riding...

One thing I would do differently is to use a standard transmission. A huge part of the vibe is due to being in gear at a stop. It just doesn't like that! On my "someday" list is an NV4500.

Overall I am still very thrilled with it. Since the time of this post, the rig has changed quite a bit. I have done a 3/4 ton axle swap (soa/shackle flip) with full-width Ford F250 axles and am...
