Finally got the GV installed and took it for a test spin. Its gonna be sweet.

1125 RPM @ 60 MPH and it still will out-accelerate some cars.

475 degrees (pre)

Got a few issues to work out on one drive shaft but I should be getting used to it by the end of the week.

I'll start re-baselining it the following week. In set the alignment at exactlt zero camber and zero toe-in, and chamfered off my swelled front brake pads, so I have to reset the baseline for a fair test.

Soon you will have to turn the idle down just to keep the speed limit LOL

how did you do the drive lines? I have been wanting to do this to my 450 so i can actually do 75-80 mph and get some decent mpg highway. Do you have any pics of the GV in? Where did you find the unit any ways?

Most cities have drive line shops that can fabricate and balance drive shafts.

I ordered the unit from GV direct.

Yes, I'm 4x2 and that made for a more expensive and difficult installation as the overdrive is "divorced" - that is hanging out by itself and requires two drive shafts. 4x4 installations bolt at the back of the transfer case. I'll post a least a couple of pix shortly.
