Very nice - have to watch some of your vids. I settled for the HEMI and 38s to preserve range so really curious how this beast will perform when doing daily tasks :) but it will certainly be an epic show vehicle

This will be fun to watch. I finally got my 392 swapped Mojave out into the dirt for a serious test run a couple weeks ago. Sitting on 40's its an absolute beast on the trails. Why the 840? I briefly thought about doing the 600 but wanted to wait until their were more folks running them. I watched Kevon Williams blow up his transfer case on the Step Child recently. Essentially the engine said "yes" and the transfer case said "no." Given all that power in the engine, do you plan to swap the transfer case and go with an Atlas instead of the Rubicon?

I went with the 840 because it seems more exciting to me. More power, more supercharger whine, more cool things as part of the build, and more enjoyable to everyone watching. I have the opportunity to do something unique and wild that I would love to see happen, and I am sure many others would. I build my rigs to share with others with my youtube family and I hope everyone finds it entertaining to watch the craziness. I am a car guy first, and an off-roader second, and what car guy could turn down the chance to build something so awesome?

I don't worry about what might break. I will deal with whatever comes up as we go. I am going to run 38's to start and I don't plan to play on the rocks as much as Kevin does with the Step Child as that isn't the type of wheeling I typically do or have access to here in BC. If the t-case blows up, I'll replace it, but I will see how far it will go until then.

I like it. You have the right attitude, if it breaks you can fix it. Also can't have too much power.
