The slot is .020" smaller than the shaft, so they snap on nicely. Then I can clamp the skewer shut and drive around without any rattling.

The spacer without a slot in the back is a nylon spacer I made to take up the slack in my locking hitch pin.

nice and tight
my SD Clutch doesnt rattle when tightened??

did dash rings, a/c vent trim, a/c control trim, and ring on shifter. didn't want to mess with the radio, it really doesn't look bad against the black. may have to upgrade later on. I also took a "his and hers" pic for kicks

filled up the tank and calculated the average MPG for the first time after the lift and tires, since I finally got a full tank through without some odd driving trip messing up the results

17.6





knew it was going to hurt going into it though lol

when I first got the truck I was pushing 24 around town, LOL

then came the 20"s and it dropped to about 20mpg... then the 2.5" lift and 265/75's and that's where I'm at now...

Umm, mine too. But can you tighten them without a bicycle? That's why I made the Teflon spacers.
