Yes lots, I want to make sure I can do to trip without issue as long as I don't do anything stupid. Now on the matter of the extension. What is the safest length for the cord?

Depends on the amperage drop over the length of the cord . The larger the gauge of the cord the less drop you will experience .

This is a nice stranded cord at a fair price .

So I'm at a cross road on whether to get some 12' Bilstein 5125 Shocks for the front 11's. Either one will give me the wanted travel I'm looking for.

So the gear break-in period is done tonight I'm droping the diff fluid and checking things out. If all is well which it should be, I'll be hitting the trails tomorrow with some big boys I might add. I'll be the smallest rig in the group.
