    i was having the same issues as you describe and i couldnt find the problem for the longest time. Apparently the size of the women i was hauling around was the issue....got me a skinny girlfriend and the issue went away....hope that helps

    No... The fat chicks stay. My truck rides so smooth when they're in the back seat.

    Yeah I ended up going 4.56 ( although I kinda wish I went 4.88 ) mine wasn't spraying so bad, but was dripping oil as my diff skid was catching a lot of it.

    Ah I see. I was leaned more towards the the 4.88.. But i'm glad I didnt because Eric at YotaMasters showed me the size difference of the gears and the solid pinion spacer. Much much beefier!

    I was a little confused on how ive seen RcFreak shred the gnarly brap brap doughnuts and not have any gearing issues.. Then Eric showed me the difference between the Limited Slip gearing and the e-locker gearing.

    How's your MPG's?

    Sick build! The only sand I've ever played in was in a POS Humvee, they DO NOT soak up the bumps like that at any speed, and they get washy as hell over 40 mph.

    The picture of you in the air with that "whoa shit" look on your face is priceless!!!

    Most semis aren't that rough when you're in the cab

    I'm sure all the airbags help out a lot. They are pretty smooth in the cab.

    But damn, a center-mount Humvee would be pretty cool.

    Gov't Humvees handle like ass. I'm pretty sure with a set of progressive springs and some nasty shocks would help. The civilian Gen 1 probably has a slew of aftermarket options that increase the ride and performance, but Uncle Sam doesn't pay much mind to those details.
