Being a Dana 60 at heart they are strong enough to handle some mighty big HP and tires. Which is why it boggles my mind that they didn't bother to take advantage of the strength and build it properly.

Look here my man:

http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=871359

Is it indestructable? No, but if it can break a blinged up 9in r+p without even wear marks, I would call it pretty close.

That said, the rovertracks toy option is pretty sweet.

Aww, fuct it and get the Rover 9 and I'll install it for you. Even throw in a couple quarts of the racing fluid I have left over, while we fix up your sliders.


I don't set up gears though, don't be greedy.

I remember that thread... just somehow skipped over that it was a 9 (Keith doesn't list it on his website yet so that's my excuse)

I'll have to save my pennies for that kind of bling though...

and what do you mean you don't setup gears!! geez what the hell kind of outfit are you running (oh wait...)

Of course as soon as I snap my shaft I'll have to do something...

I'm currently taking bets on how soon my GBR 24 spline HD shafts snap... going from 33 to 35 + beadlocks and planning to add a crawler box (as soon as I get the number off my LT230 next week I'll order) so... what's the bet... first trip? somewhere in the middle of rubicon? come on kids place your bets everyone is a winner (except the schmuck breaking his shafts of course )
