Just arrived and can't wait to get these puppies on... they're even sweeter in person! Yes, I'm drooling.

Increased the caster almost as far as it would go. That actually made my pinion angle better, eliminated the very slight vibe I had at highway speed, and improved the handling dramatically. In the next few days will be a tire rotation and installing the rear Upcountry coils I have (gotta clean them up and paint them first).

Tweaked the front suspension a little more, and took it for a test drive. Found some good, fun dirt roads. And then I had compcrasher86 take a quick acceleration video. Problem is, it's starting to feel a bit slow again, has me debating a supercharger for it.

It's stock height (soon to get upcountry coils in the rear only, for towing and handling reasons). Tires are 245/70R16 Firestone Destination A/Ts (a bit bigger than stock). It's a 5.9 with Enginequest heads (2.02 / 1.62 valves), small cam (206/212 .480/.480 on a 112 LSA), 1.7 roller rockers (netting .512" total cam lift), full exhaust from the manifolds back (finished in the stock 5.9 tip) and a tune. Redline is raised to 6000 rpm, shift points are at 5400. Transfer case has been swapped to a 242.

Video was from a stalled-up launch through the top of 2nd gear (about 82 mph).

Do you think a 14 year old engine is worth putting a super charger on?

The top end only has 10k on it, bottom end has just under 130k, but it still has great compression, etc. I wouldn't push more than 5 - 6 psi on it though.
