Are the big holes in the tabs for weld washers? What ratio did you settle on?

Those tabs are for axle tie downs.  I have always wanted them for my TJ and they were on clearance so I bought 2 sets.  As far as gear ratio goes I am thinking 5:13s.  I have a set for the front already and have read that 5:13s are quite a bit stronger then 5:38s.  Not positive on this only because shaved 14 bolt gears are expensive.

Loaded my transmission up toady.  Its huge.  I didn't think they were much bigger then the 4l60e. I was wrong! I can load a 4l60 by myself. Not going to happen with this beast.
I want a few opinions here. Are you sure you want to run this monster? They are not only heavier/bigger, but also take more HP to spin up and more braking to slow down? If you're running less then a 1000 HP, I really don't see a need for it? They also require a computer to run them. Just thinkin out loud. Anyone else?

I want to!  It's the difference between atlas and 205 in my opinion.   3:1 first vs 4:1 first.  Plus the gear ratios are closer.  You don't need to run a stand alone computer to run them unless you want to use early motors.  I am curious what it weighs though. I should weigh it and compare it to the 4l60e.  It's sitting right next to a 4l60e.  The only real downside is the height of it.

6l80 is between #210-230 depending on pan and converter.
4l80 #165-195 depending on pan and converter.
Turbo 400 is about #135 +-

I would sell it all and get a horse. Way more reliable.

I think it would be completely out of control with a manual transmission.

I also with never go back to a manual.  I am loving my auto jeep and have no complaints at all at this point.  That's coming from a manual lover!  All of my cars have been manual.  They are more efficient and reliable.  Not to mention fun.

Now how in the heck did I get drug into this? And I don't know why you would think you're already on my shit list? Ain't none of you on here on my shit list. Just because we don't always agree on stuff don't mean I have bad feelings toward anyone. And yes I know I can come off as a huge asshole sometimes. I really am not that bad just takes time for folks to learn me. Hope your project is coming along the way you want.

I bought the 14 bolt and the 60 for 100 each.  I want to run this on the 14 bolt.
https://www.sneveyso..._off_road_parts
This would make my axle 65.25 inches wide.  I hope to be able to run rimrock with it.  I know wildman just put me on his shit list ( I was probably already there) but if it doesn't fit I might have to keep my TJ.  Nothing wrong with that.  The super duty 60 is buff but it is the later version and the unit bearings are huge so no 6 lug versions of the unit bearings.  I am thinking I want a 99-2004 super duty axle.  I am still sorting this out.  The axle I have is better but messes my plans up.  I would like to be able to run 15" wheels.  Transfer case will be getting a 32 spline input and cleaned up a bit.  It was free sorta.  Just cost me a day of helping put a superduty v10 in. It was only like 105 that weekend.  I think he got the better end of the deal!  The 6l80 is brand new. Build it off road helped source that.  The 6.2 l92 came out of a 08 Yukon Denali with 170k so it may need a bit of love.  My truck has 175k now though and I don't cut her much slack so we will see.

I am building a buggy to go behind rimrock with.  I assumed you would assume that I was bringing my chainsaw and cutting a freeway.

Am I really that bad? I know I have my views and aren't scared to voice them. You can build what ever you want and I can careless as long as you're not ruining the trails. I feel that way about everyone and their rigs. No one is ever on my shit list unless I was to catch someone doing what you just said, cutting trees to fit or making a bypass to fit.

Tryan,
I knew you were joking but the problem is some folks do do that on the trails. If they didn't the Naches Trail and many others wouldn't be freeways now. And Rimrock is getting cut up now too.
I'd like to build a buggy someday too but my leg won't take the cold so I would have to figure out a way to make a top or side panels if I had a tin top for it.
