Installed my speedo gear today....Friday on the drive up to the trail, I'm gonna use a GPS to confirm its accuracy...

Funny how much lower I sit compared to the Ranger, yet I've got close to the same clearance from the diff to the ground lol

I get about 17 avg if I'm hauling a trailer or it's just slam full of tools and lumber on the roof rack. Highest so far was 24 just hwy miles.

Yeah we'll see now that the speedo gear is in. I'm thinking I can consistently get 18 on it with lift and tires as well. And nice. Im cmack on there also. It's the only one I browse. I'm on some other local ones also, I just don't post often. Surprised you don't just always leave the seats folded up. Gives me tons of room that way...

This makes me miss my Jeep. I had the same year/model/tires on a 3" lift too... My biggest gripe was not having a front locker. Other than that, it was one of the best "practical use" offroading vehicles I have ever owed.

I used to just fold the seat down but I was always needing just a tiny bit more room for all my stuff. The chop saw stand and table saw both have big wheels so I needed all I could get in there.

It's like this.
