    Awesome! How'd the install go for you? Got my truetrac and 5.29s in today too. Drove it on the hwy about 100 miles, it holds 5th gear like a dream now

    Install went great! Yea 5.29s really help! Can finally use cruise control again! Helped big time! Install was pretty smooth. Really took my time and my dog ate some mouse posin so I had to deal with that. I made her throw it up. Girlfriend is a vet and luckily she was with me.

    Busy couple of days.. got a 1.5" AAL installed Today and had the rear shocks rebuilt yesterday. Today swapped out my positive battery terminal for a bigger one to give the wiring to the fuse box a little more slack as well

    Right on! Now just to get them broken in, hoping to have that knocked out in a couple weeks. Good thing you had her around! My dog did the same thing a few years ago. Think it was vitamin K we gave her

    Good evenin Joey!
    Good evenin Matt, thanks man! Digging the gears so far, but the speedo is wayyy off now

    Makes sense. 35s should put you at 2800-ish at 70.

    When you getting 35s? Next week? :boink:

    Thats what i was thinking too, better to be overgeared and ready for them..

    lol idk about that! Gonna try to get some 16s before i do the 35s so will likely be a while. At least till these coopers wear down. Still have quite a bit of tread on them. Did you ever find a buyer for your tall skinnies?


    thanks bro, me too! What are your rpms like on the hwy?

    35s are cheaper and easier to come-by on 17s than 16s these days.

    Yeah there are definitely some better options for 17s and theyre cheaper, but i really want that extra sidewall! have my mind set on TRD beadlocks

    Definitely better on 16s, but you can't argue with the cost. It just means that it'll become harder to find 16", tall sidewall, big-ass muds for a good price.
