    Hey guys ... Picking up my RC 4x4 the end of this month. Decided to go with Super White instead of MGM (Hour, you sold me on the SW). Wanted to ask, will 5100's set at 1.75 level it out? Planning on 5100's all around. I'm not going to run a shell, like my '03. Also, putting my 265/75 R16 BFG AT KO's on the '13. Anyone see any issues that I may run into. Thanks for the input.

    I have the 5100s at 1.75 with the 265/75/16 BFG AT. I think its perfectly level. Check out some pictures on my build thread if you want. And on a side note, the only other color that I like besides the MGM is SW!

    Eric, I appreciate your response. I like the mods and that set up you are running. Looks really good. Oh, and I kept waffling beteeen the MGM and SW, Haha. Thanks again.

    Also, is there any need to instal a differential drop with 5100's set at 1.75?

    Does anyone running 5100's at 1.75 have any noticeable vibrations or any other problems? Just looking long term, and don't want to sacrifice performance for looks. Thanks

    Update: This will be on a '13 RC 4x4

    After logging 125 miles this weekend I am very happy with my recent afe pro dry s drop in and LCE header install . I highly recommend it to all of the 2.7 2tr owners . Wish I had done it earlier . You will notice a pretty big difference

    The header was probably the biggest gain. Are you running a stock exhaust?

    Yeah I think with a more open exhaust like kind I will see little to no gain. The stock, once you remove the second cat, flows a lot better then I thought. I'm probably going to put a resonator on mine to get a little more bottom and back and hush her down

    If it's on the checklist, you won't pass without it.
    Beyond that, it depends on who is doing the testing. Most techs just go down the checklist, and as long as there's no aftermarket or the aftermarket has an EO number, they'll pass it if it sniffs clean.

    Some take themselves too seriously and will follow federal law to the letter which states that it is unlawful to perform any modifications that increase the emissions OR SOUND level of any intake or exhaust system.

    I'll find out in a year if the secondary filter on my 2.7 is on the checklist.

    Had the console out to complete cb wiring so I decided to take it further while console out and install the urd short shifter that has been hangin around since before getting rid of the 05. Glad about the procrastination so it ended up on the 08 instead. Love the difference.

    I am thinking about trading my 2012 MT in for a 2013 AT with buckets,

    Anyone heard if 2014 for the RC should be worth waiting for???

    Thanks and Long Live the RC!

    I like the red in the Reg Cab, looks great!

    With the black plastic flares and bumpers, some tint and set of dark wheels look even better.
