What is all needed to run a simple sas with 40s on a k1500?

I thought about doing the conditional formatting to make it turn red, yellow, and green, but conditional formatting is always such a pain that it would take another half hour to get right.

I spent seven years scheduling aircraft maintenance. The airlines have specialized software that optimizes it, but the Air Force would rather spend 10x as much making people do it the manual way. We were minimally manned, and I spreadsheeted everything. My boss complained that I wanted to walk in, turn on my computer, and have it do all my work for me. I replied, "Isn't that what the computers are for?"

I know what you mean with the colors, I have color changing boxes for the average temperature for the incubation spreadsheets. it took me forever to figure that out!

4lo.com has that chart, also a calculator to figure out ratios, final drives, etc. Can play around with tire sizes and gear ratios for final RPM or MPH. Grimjeeper.com goes even farther...

I added a few lower gears and went up to 48" tires for S&Gs.

Found this truck today. Going to go check it out sometime upclose. It's sased.

Maybe I can pick it up if it's done well and in good shape and take the parts off it and get them on mine.

I've been hunting for axles but there is none anywhere near me so this may be the only chance I have for a while.

My buddy who lives by it says they pull it with a strap around the yard everyonce in a while but it's been there for years.

And here is a little update on the truck. Finally got the interior done up and looking and functioning nicely. Got some subwoofers behind the new seats. Everything interior wise has been done for 250 dollers so not bad for how it turned out. I made a roll bar/headach rack for it with led lights as seen. Hopefully getting this sas done here sometime within the next few months.
