hiridin said:the way its reading its like u have 4.56 gears on yer 29" tires... from i can figure out. out of overdrive going 65mph yer at like 3400 rpm's u put it in overdrive and it should drop atleast 15%. which will put u at yer 2900 rpm's. so thats how it appears to me. jus seems kinda weird it would be like that lucky in a way if thats the case but strange no one let u know about it when u bought it...
Yeah, well whatever is in there it gives some sick torque. We had to move some abandoned vehicles off our lot today and I had to tow a totally smacked f250 with a loaded bed and locked tranny up into the snow covered mud parking lot next to ours.
With everyone jeering me, and telling me I was gonna kill my X, I locked both hubs, taped down the one that spins too easily to free, and dropped it into 4x and low. Even when the truck hit a small strip of dry pavement, it had no hope of standing still. I was amazed at what my X did, and Im totally in love with it now.
The icing on the cake? When we couldn't get the chain free (it got wedged down there somewhere on the 250) I took up the slack, goosed it, and ripped the bumper off the 250. The chain broke my rear left tail light cover, but what the hell. All that does is add character, right?
Amazing the balls these X's have!
