    I think he's been looking for a rig that's comfortable enough for his wife to come with him. (and maybe drive to and from trails) :D

    Phil is correct, I have been debating for some time now if I wanted a enclosed B2, sport or a 4Dr. for taking the wife and family out.
    In the end the 4Dr was the choice due to the cargo capacity.

    Plans
    E.B./narrowed D44 front with selectable locker.
    locked rear
    Warn winch
    33"-35" Tires
    Sliders, front and rear bumpers
    when the A4LD dies 700R4

    Let me know when you do the 700 swap. I have experience in that. Are you planning on keeping the stock transfer case? If not, the 700 swap can allow for lots of other options.

    I will keep that in mind Kevin, I am going to start collecting pieces for the swap and see what comes my way. I am thinking of going with 1350 doubler and a electric 1354, rockauto has shift motors for $78

    The front axle I was going to get on 31st looks like it is not going to happen now, so I am back to looking for a good deal on a 44 and a 700R4

    Yeah, I talked to him the other day. He has a few other offers he is looking at but hs sounds intrested... we will see. Thinkin about just getting a set of 60's and building them up the way I want them and swaping them out later. I dont want to have my rig down for very long.

    You know Forrest still has two stock EB 44's sitting at his house...
