Thanks for the kind words RR! Miss you buddy.

89Talon, be sure and read Ranger's recommendation on clutch fluid before you go. Otherwise your clutch may stick to the floor.

Thanks for all...

Having ridden in your car with both setups.....I think you chose wisely. Your current setup is docile, yet very fast and very reliable. You click off the 10.8's and 10.9's like clockwork.
