    new guy here

    Hi everybody. Just registered, but ive seen a lot of your threads so I figured I may as well join. I've got a 1983 power ram 50 with the 4d55t. Behind that is a toyota 5 speed with dual cases, chevy full size axles, 5.5 lift springs up front and chevy 63s with lift blocks and shackle doublers. Pretty much everything is home made including the trans adapter. Looking forward to talkin with you guys

    Welcome aboard! Did you do the mods to your Ram yourself? When you figure out how to posts pics, get a few of them up on site for us

    Run!!?! It's a MONSTER! It is great to see one of these beasts get this kind of treatment - too many guys doing the same old thing. There's not a lot of Mitsubishi left under (more of Bitsumashi) it but it's still awesome.

    Actually it does great. Lock the throttle at 1500, double the cases and away she goes

    Can't mistake the Tahoe area. First thing I thought of when I saw those photos.

    You make those runs without a roll bar?
