How difficult is it to install a reverse kit in a 1996 Storm? Is this a shade tree mechanic job or is there more to it? Are there any negative side affects of doing this?
I was thinking of this kit: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2432958342&category=42608
Anyone know the part number of the reverse gear they mention in the ad?

Thanks,
Ray

All i can say is if the 96 reverse is the same as the 95, I had a heckuva time getting the piece that pulls the gears inside the chaincase to grab. I finally said reverse... i dont need no stinkin reverse. I pulled the reverse out of my XLT and sold it. Saves weight too... I am sure if i spent enough time i would have gotten it to work right but I didnt really like how it worked and felt that it was just another part that could break. The newer reverse systems are much better.

I myself, could not possibly live without reverse anymore. If you have any mechanical ability you can handle it. As far as the reverse gear they are talking about I would have to see the kit the most expensive gear is about $130.

Darkstar My post was for the Grinch, I in no way ment to belittle your abilities. I only intended on encouraging him to add the kit if he desired. I offer you my most humblest apologies.
