Very clean and shiney, what transfer ratios are you running? That looks like a late model transfer box

I saw this truck recently in person and the level of cleaniness is amazing and there was absolutely no detail that was left untouch. Wish I had a little more time to check it out some more and maybe hear that diesel mill run. I'm also kicking myself now for not taking a peek underneath.

The alloys do look cool on it although I would love to see what it would look like with some white steelies. Very nice job on it Randy :

haha, your dad was mentioning selling it and the story of some football playing making an offer on it at a gas station. I would love to get it for my dad as he'd love the MPG from the Perkins and having a nice old Rover especially with the coil springs but I can barely keep up with the project costs on my '95
