amen brother, the pede tranny is on its way, the axles are coming from my buggy and everything else I have. except the window glass. Hint hint. I will end up doing an in-cab cage to this thing since the windsheild pillars are kinda bent.

clods are short at 11". I think I 'll probably use mashers or swamps for this project. but we'll. I plan on using a pede trans so it won't hold up to the AT's.

so wait, if youre using the axles and stuff from your tuber, is the tuber done for? Or do you have another set of axles to put on the tuber?

Well a few things could happen to it. I've been thinking of putting my TXT axles under it or selling the chassis & Jugg trans. But it's just some ideas.

Why does the tuber just not perform well enough? If you were to sell it how much would you sell it for?

I don't know for sure. I'd like to get as much as I could of course.

well of course you'd deserve it too, I think its one of the best looking tubers out there right now, I'd love to have something like that. If you ever come up with a price I'd definitely try finding money to purchase it!

well last night I spent a few hours on the floor.(thats my shop, we live in a condo with no garage ) Anyway I took the Tuber and swapped in my TXT parts. The rear went together ok but lower shock mounts were too wide and the shocks hit the frame. Then the lower links only had a 1/4" to travel upward till they hit the frame. so though it looked pretty cool and would have helped it be more stable with TXT axles It would'nt work very well. So it's wnet back to the previous TLT set up. I'll post up pics once the new body panels are painted. So I may have to get another set of axles. I'm not sure if I can sell the tuber.
