I know its been a while since I updated. The new 4.88 gears are perfect with these 35's. I got 15.5 MPG at 65mph on the highway on my way to wheeling last time.
The third big phase of the build will be coming up shortly. With the tax return money, the wife has approved some new goodies.
Ordering a Savvy Offroad body lift and gas tank skid, Brown Dog motor mounts with built in lift, and UCF lo pro trans mount and ultra high clearance skid.
After that, the only thing left to do will be a cage, new seats, and replace the worn out frame mounted control arm mounts. I may build a custom mid arm suspension at that point in time.
It's not an addiction. It's a way of life.
