It is a heavy pig and I don't expect her to float around effortlessly but the gear reduction 4x4 hubs should provide an amazing launch! Only one place is doing the block up to this point. I agree...

I'm about 2 hours east of Winston Salem. I ld do it for the drivetrain, but I'm in deep on my 07 LBZ build and paid about that much for the drivetrain alone. Very cool find! Thanks for sharing.
