    LOL, mating trannys. There are two in the picture.

    I'm only familiar with box trannys. A box cross-member does not get in the way of pan removal and filter change. I've taken the trans in The Ice Car out of a car and put it in three times, but not quite as frequent. 2011 out of dad's '89 MGM into my '89 MGM, 2012 out of my '89 MGM into The Ice Car (also had to install The Ice Car's original trans in my '89, so I guess there was 3 in 2 years), 2017 out of and into The Ice Car to fix leaking flexplate bolts that I didn't put sealant on when I installed the engine in 2016. That cross-member on your Marauder sounds and looks like a bigger PITA than a box. Though '90+ cable shift linkage is a bit easier to deal with compared to '89- rod setup.

    Back on the road.
    Road legal.

    Drove it to DC and back. I forgot how much fun it actually is!

    Just put new upper control arms in the front and replaced the blower motor resistor.

    Plans for the winter include doing the big brake upgrade, replacing the front lower control arms lower it and struts, and relocating the battery to the trunk as a start.
