The Face Plated TKX looks really good, and cheaper than the Magnum at half the weight.

The shifter is 9" farther forward than the Magnum XL....that would take some fancy linkage or a long goofy shift lever to get there....but its possible.
That weight was erroneous....it was stated 250# on one website but that turned out to be incorrect so it's NOT half the weight.Just so you are aware, I keep my eye on your magnum xl continually. As if you need another nudge in that direction... lol
ORRRRRRR - Jericho 5 speedThat weight was erroneous....it was stated 250# on one website but that turned out to be incorrect so it's NOT half the weight.
It's really closer to 25 pounds heavier than the TKX and the TKX trans is not as strong as the Magnum so I will most likely go with another stock magnum and just lower my shift points to something sub 8k.
