That would be in the sub transmission and it could be possible if the correct gears was found. I haven;t taken the time to see if other gears could be swapped in even with a little machine work. Turner offers them at a very high price and if the demand is high enough for them to build them.

Really, I was unaware of that. Yea im sure the price would scare me after seeing $650 for the foreman line-up. After riding in 18-36"s of snow today a GR would have been a wonderful addition to the ruby!

You get that kind of info from one of these.

I bought this one the day I bought I bought my Rubicon.

I found it to be very interesting reading and very educational.
