    I have a twin mattress that I throw in the back to sleep on when i'm on a bike trip or camping so I had to have a rack for the bikes and gear. Got the MegaWarrior mounted on 54" tracks so it's easy to remove when i don't need it.

    Had the new K&N at the house waiting for me when I got home from Afghanistan. First performance mod. Easy to install and a small increase in HP & MPG!

    I hit a deer 2 weeks ago so my rig is in the shop but I should have it back next week. I just ordered clear headlights and corner markers and will be doing the blinker mod, thanks to Blackdawgs info! Also I am adding a Magnaflow muffler and painting my wheels black. Should be done with all that in the next 2 weeks!

    which magnaflow you get?



    Old man Emu :cool:[/QUOTE]

    Didn't get one yet. I was looking at the 14" because Montes sounds so good but I heard a few lately that sounded raspy so I am unsure now, maybe 18"???

    Thanks, that helped a lot! I have watched your videos before but you are right, the laptop speakers didn't do it justice. Much better with good headphones! Sounds great, I think you just sold me on the 18". Also, do you have a tip on your exhaust? Do you think they make much difference?

    For a lift. I would suggest Eibachs and 5100's all the way around. Throw in a nice leaf pack like Dakars or wheelers 5 pack and you should be good. I just installed my 5 pack and eibachs and love the ride, I think it rides great but I live on extremly rough roads. The new suspension soaks it up.

    And on the muffler topic. I want an 18" but there are so many varations. Does anybody have the actual part number of the muffler they have on their truck?

    The wheelers 5 pack and 5100's lifted my rear about 1.5 inches like the website said. The Eibach's and 5100's lifted my front a full three inches thus making my truck sit level. So baisically the front is lifted 3 inches and the rear is 1.5 inches.

    Ive ran them for 2 weeks now. Put about a thousand miles on with some wheeling and some extremely rough dirt roads. I feel like they are settled now. Never took measurements before. My after measurements for the front are similar to others found in the Eibach/5100 thread.
