    That’s a solid choice on the 4.88s in the event you ever get the desire for 37s. The 4.56 gearing is what is keeping me at 35s as I just bought two new tires today.

    Naw I’m auto or else I would have probably jumped to 4.88s like you did.

    I forget the exact numbers but the manual is geared lower overall than their auto counterparts. You probably already know this but just sharing for anyone else reading not paying attention.

    Potential 37s in my future was the exact reason for over gearing lol

    It's weird not being in Virginia Beach for Hurricane season. This is my first time gone during it. Hope everyone is fairing the weather okay.

    Thanks, it really wasn’t bad and has already passed. A little wind and rain, but at least out here in Chesapeake it wasn’t much.

    My parents are in the Little Neck area of Virginia Beach and they said all is okay, minus the lack of power. Heard some areas South of you guys, especially Ocracoke, really got hammered. Record flooding

    Yikes, we were lucky and didn’t lose power at all today. Just binge watched Netflix because I didn’t have to work.

    You're talking shipyard periods. I can only assume either Navy or Merchant Marine.

    There's a good chance on this. Are they yours? Were these before they started using the Flowform molding process? How bad of balancing issues are we talking about?

    Is the rock rash fixable or able to be touched up?

    Sorry to have struck a nerve. Who is them? The shipyard? The Navy? Merchant Marine?
