UCF is having a 15% off sale for Labor Day...


Also, how are the 3.73's and 33's? I'm curious as to how you like them since you live in the Appalachians and I live in the lower point of it so you have more mountains. 3.07's absolutely suck in the mountains but I really like them on the interstate. I'm pushing close to 17mpg at 75mph and I don't really want to give that up by going to 4.10s.

Idk what kind of mpg I'm getting, but its hardly any worse than when it was stock. There's a very steep part coming up the mountain that I only go about 40 without having to floor it, but I couldn't do it that much better stock. I don't know if ill even bother going to 4.10.

According to the Grimm calculator, you should be turning around 2,500rpm at 65mph. With 4.10's that would be 2,800rpm. It really kills mpg at 70mph when it's turning 3,000rpm.

I think I'd only go 4.10 when I go to 35's. Much more respectable highway RPM.

Sounds about right. I hardly ever even go that fast though lol.

I need to figure out where my builds going before I decide on gears.

With the 3 spd auto I would skip on the regear and put that money towards a 4:1 transfer case. Similar cost, similar low range gearing, and better highway mileage.

Yea same here. I really want to keep my build simple, so I have a hard time deciding between 285's or 35's. Probably will go to 35's though. Mine will most likely wind up looking similar to this.

Yea I'm thinking about getting a 4:1 conversion.

-A pair of MC arms, probably rear upper
-Crown sliders

Sliders. Arms are a close second.

I'm also looking into seats. The stock ones absolutely suck IMO, and mines getting worse. Suggestions? I'd of course like to keep the price down, but I don't want something like ****tybilt.

New seats would be nice, 15 years old and been through many rain falls.
