or does one do 2wd/4wd?

cheers
They are a high/low for the front and rear wheels. You could leave the rear in N and put the front in L and do a "front dig".

See the link for a technical and pic explanation.

No more pics of front axle at this time. I believe it is about 3 inches or so wider around 65. "Personal thought preference" I wanted dana 44's originally so it would feel a little closer to stock feel driving around. But everyone kept telling me 60's because of the increase in power...so we settled with 60 in the rear and 44 in the front.

Very nice. Are you relocating the fuel tank, or is it just not re-installed?

Early thoughts are that I am going to make heat shields for the seat box before it goes to exhaust.

With roughly 8-10 inches of pipe after the header flanges, it sounds like just about anything with open exhaust. That should change for the better tomorrow however. I am working on the heat protection tonight, then tomorrow it goes to the exhaust guru.

To those who use facebook, I am posting updates on the Buckhorn Imports page:

I thought the color was red- but from the pic of the left rear corner it appears orange. Is that just the camera- or is it an orange color? Whatever it is- it looks great!
