With the 6 spd I wouldn't gear any higher than 4.88 but will see. Yea the fsm has it scheduled for 24k so I am following that. The rust will be taken care of and most of the underbody will be coated with some 3m undercoating.

You should get a set of the AEV beadlocks. Time to sell those 35"s.

That would be awesome in 15"s, but just think of it this way... when the 35"s wear, or you decide you want a change, just go ahead and kick it up to 37"s. Don't forget the chromo shafts.

With Tube fenders and about a 2.5" lift, 1"bl... you have enough clearance for all of that.

If this autobody shop thing really pays that much, I would like to apply for a Job. I am mechanically inclined, a fast learner, and I work very hard.... Me wants monies.
