Ratkas met al sy rat hefbome en binne covers opgesit
Ook die koppelaar petrol en rem pedale godoen
Gaan lekker slaap vanaand en alles is dood standard ombouing van aotumaties na handrat

J D Shields, 'n oudlid van hierdie forum het 'n 4.8 in sy handgrenade laat sit.
Maar met 'n autobox.
Hy het destyds gese dit was die beste 4x4 wat hy ooit gehad het.
Maar dit is seker maar 'n persoonlike keuse wat jy van hou.
Die kar het weens onverwante redes later uitgebrand.

I wonder if this handgrenade was mated with a 4.8 and an earlier 4 speed or post 2004 5 speed auto box :think:
