Dude I miss life out west. My poor truck hasn't seen dirt AT ALL since I moved out here. Makes me want to just buy another car and make it crazy.

It doesn't help that I work with a bunch of chassis engineers that all own sports cars. I'm the only one with a truck

such a great feeling. It's nice having weekends to do stuff instead of worrying about tests and homework.

Hey steve o - I noticed in the 255/85 owner's group thread that you had 255/85's, and then switched back to 265/75's. Getting new tires soon and trying to decided between 235/85 or 265/75 or 255/85 (r16). Any comments on mpg / power etc?

I lost 3 or 4 MPG around town and maybe 2 on the highway with the 255's. Power was definitely down but not terrible. I have 4.10 gears and a 5 speed.

They looked and performed awesome but just weren't practical at the time because I was commuting 200 miles a week on a college kid budget.

Ben (m3bassman) is running the 235's if you want to get in touch with him. He claims similar MPG to stock.

Very nice ride! I was curious if you have any pics of your cv boots/angles with the 5100/OME 881 set up? Do you have any issues with the boots with this setup? I'm running the 5100/Eibach coil setup and the Eibachs are giving me more front lift than I care for, therefore I've been contemplating swapping them out for 881's.
Any advice is greatly appreciated and your ride is definitely an inspiration!

Thanks!

I got about 20k out of my OEM CV axles after the lift (185k on them total) before the boot on the driver's side tore. Now the other side is starting to go at 196k. No pics though, sorry. It's snowing outside.

Thanks for the info! Do you know if the cv boot fins (specifically the inners) are constantly rubbing, as in the lift is causing the boots to tear? Also, are you running the top 10mm spacer or just struts and coils? Thanks again- I'm just trying to make sure I do all my research before making another lift purchase...
