Will I have any rubbing or anything with a 255/70/17. I want to go as big as possible without modifying anything to make it work. Obviously the lift I did is modifying but I don't want spacers or fender rolling or things like that. The biggest I can fit without issues right now. Thanks!
So u don't want to modify ur WK at all?_ I can tell u this much pinch weld mod is virtually free duper easy and very inconspicuous and helps clear your rubber not matter what lift...just my 2

Drove 150 miles today and ran a small experiment. Turned off the MDS using my Diablosport Intune while running the 91 tune to see how it changed my mileage. So while running 67 mph with the cruise control set, I got 15.5 without MDS and 18.5 with MDS on according to EVIC.

It really happened in my HEMI. In fact I took a picture to send to my brother who bought a 3.7 for the mileage. My best tank ever was 20.8 mpg with the mileage tune with a 60-65 mph avg.

Can you give me a run of what that involves and the benefit to it?

Pull the liner, cut the p/w between the spot welds, hammer the "tabs" flat, prime it/paint it, put liner back on (reform the hump to as flat as can be).

Like mentioned, gives more clearance in the rear of the front wheel wells for bigger tires.

Okay, simple enough. Anyone know where I can get a simple roof rack safari style that just bolts right up to my rails? Looking to store a few toys up there.

If you have an iphone download the app. It's super easy to use and post pictures (I'm on my phone right now). That might make things easier if you know how to work an iphone or iPad better than posting pictures from your computer and a digital camera

For gas mileage I have been getting 15-16 mixed since my tranny was rebuilt, and oil change and recharged my k&n drop in. I was getting 12-13 mixed previously. All on an 89 octane tune from my superchips
