I just saw this thread - saw the rig in person on Wednesday in the King Sooper's parking lot. Now I know why you wanted to do Redcone. Why did you not use the H55F? I love mine in my 60 (goes perfect with the 3.70s and 33s) and loved the one I had in my HZJ75, which went perfect with 35s and 4.11s.

60 MPH is all she's got on the flats & generally floored. With the 35's I figure that's about 65. I'm not sure I would have ever hit 5th gear. Furthermore, my rear driveshaft is 19" with the crawl box & flipped springs. Can't imagine how short it would be with the H55 + Crawler

That makes sense. H55Fs are pretty long for a shorty 40 and an F series motor (they fir better with a V8 that you can move way up to the front). What ratio are you running in the diffs? Stock 4.11? I had 4.11s in my HZJ75 with 35s, and the overdrive was nice on the flat or downhill, but you could forget about being able to go uphill in 5th. Pretty similar in the wagon with 3.70 and 33s. But it sure was nice to be able to drive to Moab and back and be able to cruise at the posted speed limit for most of the 75 MPH sections.

Looks great Travis.....
I was pretty surprised how well you moved on the highway. That thing tools right along at 60mph!

It really seemed right at home on the trail too.
