I used to hate driving down the highway at 65mph when it was 100+ out.
Requires you to have the doors off. my hearing seriously isnt all that great anymore, and i blame it on countless hours of driving with the doors and top off the jeep because it was so hot out.
Theres not a whole lost much worse for your ears than the wind constantly bashing them.
Hard doors on, windows rolled up with A/C on going down the freeway and it's great and not that noisy in my opinion. My toyota is actually louder to be honest. On the city streets I usually have the windows down and ac off during the summer. I guess my idea of bad is different then others? Then again, I race dirt bikes and for some reason enjoy getting the crap kicked outta me!
When the time comes to do an axle for me I'm 100% for sure going 8.8 route. I've researched a ton of other routes and unless something falls in my lap at a stupid low price, even with discounts and hookups a 8.8 swap just makes sense for strength and cost on my needs.
Dana 35 build up... cost of locker, cost of heavy duty axle kit, still on drums.
8.8... Axle and brackets ($300), Locker (wash for above), gears (offsets the axle kit purchase above), labor is mine so free. So for about $300, which is nothing, I get disc brakes and a stronger axle all the way around. Seems like a no brainer to me. Now if I was starting with a 44 though, I'd have to probably reconsider my options.
I'd like to build a small awning off the side of my enclosed trailer!!! I decided that last weekend while camping out at nelson hills. Picture of last weekends fun!!!
