    Do it. Place your order now so our coilovers are ready at the same time. It’s only $6500. Drop in the bucket.

    Oddly enough, that's the going rate for a kidney.

    We talking a healthy young kidney, or an old man kidney?

    I don't think you can sell one of George's kidneys. So, that's the price for your old man kidney. :p

    How the hell do you know the going price of a kidney!?! LMAO.
    Just a couple updates on mpg. Since going with the 265/16 Ridge Grappler, I've noticed it's heavier and has dropped the mpgs to around 16-17 mpg. But since adding the steel sliders and skids, it's around 15/16 mpgs and that's going light on the skinny. The driving around here as you all know goes up to 80+ mph. So I tend to drive around the 70 mph range on the highway and quick starts on the street lights. So, I'm overall averaging between the highway and stop lights every 1/4 mile around 14 mpg due to the aggressive driving.
    I can absolutely say that with the heavier weight tires the gears have a tendency to shift down more now to get up to speed. But, again....a lot of this is due to my aggressive driving. Lord help me when I get the SC installed. lol

    No bypasses. That’s the 2.25 kit with upgraded upper bushings, 934 cv axle upgrade, uca double shear, double sheer steering kit, spindle gusset, and king coilovers.

    No, each. Still about $300 cheaper overall than bolt in oem ones though.

    Felt a bit underclassed pulling into work and seeing this morning. 20210222_103150.jpg
    (I know it's not relevant geographically)...


    Also pulled the trigger on a VR evo 10-s winch...of course after dealing with all the downed trees on the driveway and road this past week have got me wondering if the steel cable would've been smarter/more practical purchase, at least for tree dragging type jobs. Then I thought, maybe a double hooked chain and some soft or hard shackles for abrasive object pulling/dragging...but like most of TW am looking for any real world perspectives, tips or techniques.

    Now I'm already looking at adding a snatch block, factor 55 shackle mounting upgrade options and trying to learn the do's and don't of general winching, as well as the correct or best technique/practices for vehicle self-winching! Figured I need to learn the basics before it (likely) arrives next week, not to mention pulling the slimline bumper to mount the winch!
