I'll have to get some this weekend. My exhaust is up and out of the way, but it kind of just "happened". I replaced the down pipe, welded everything up myself, and then the first time I wheeled it I crunched the new down pipe. So, I took it to a shop and had them fix it and pull it up closer to the oil pan. I've also pulled the tail pipe hanger up close too. My flat cross member has my exhaust REAL close to the floor, so close that it touches the floor under torque I also run a glass pack, mainly for the reason they are damn near bomb proof compared to other mufflers.

Did the add a leaf in the supposedly RE springs. It helped them some, so I'll run them until they die. It set @ss end a little too high, so I leveled the front out with the other front springs I had. I'll run them a while and see how I like them.

You mean the coils? I think they are 4.5" springs. It really didn't lift it much, just leveled out the front with the rear.

Get MTRs. I love mine, best tires I've ever had and awesome on road too, esp in the rain.

I probably will, though these tires have lots of life left. TSL's just are too aggressive to street drive much. My buddy has a set and it doesn't take much to kill the sidewalls.

My MTRs are even better on road than any street tire I've had. My Destinations do ok and my Uniroyal Laredo M/Ts I had hydroplaned like hell. I've hit 4" of water at 45 mph in our parking lot at work () and the MTRs blew right through it and never lost traction whatsoever. Threw water about 30' up in the air, but then again I don't have anything covering the tires lol

Obviously the MTR sidewalls are a huge improvement over TSLs haha

Iirc 37x12.15x15 MTRs were actually cheaper than my 33x12.5x15s when I went to get the 33s. Bought em locally to have em the next day, ran me $850 for the set and I think the 37s were like $830 lol.
