Exhaust upgrades are a waste of time and money.

Big price difference between getting a real suspension lift and a new muffler

get the lift kit for sure, no doubt about it. You dont need sound to be intimidating. Plus when you sound loud, then cops look at you closer. When your just big, cops dont notice till your already gone.

Go with the lift and tires!

Cops look when they hear loud vehicles, they dont look when they hear big ones

Too many toys not enough time....

bigblackbur what type of RE 3.5 lift do you have, standard, superflex or extreme duty. and how is it? Im thinking of getting the standard. so im just wondering what your take is on it since you have an RE lift.

lockers make a HUGE difference off-road, since you've got the 44 rear locking it is a great option, then add a BB or lift and bigger tires.
