Re: new goodies on the way!!

time for an update already!

I decided to be a cheap ass and instead of saving up for the MBRP catback, I just ordered a 26" Magnaflow glasspack (round 4" diameter, 2.5" in/out) and a turn-down tip, and I'm just going to dump it before the axle. I figure that should give it a little bit of a roar. it was $35 for the muffler, $20 for the tip, and seeing as I have a friend that can weld up the piping and a hanger, the whole catback should end up costing me less than $100!

Re: new goodies on the way!!

quick question! I have read that the 31's will clear with this lift with no problem, but does anyone know if I will need wheel spacers? I'm just putting 255/70R17 Toyo's on the stock wheels.

Re: new goodies on the way!!

Yup no problems at all w fit n clearance. Took her romping n she was fine too! The speedo seems to be fine. Gone by many radars and every time it was right on. I have an overland and the stock tires are 245/65R17 so not much diff in size. Mpg dropped a lil bit tho. Oh the price we pay! Literally!! Haha. Enjoy them new shoes!

Re: new goodies on the way!!

I have the stock 245/65's too.. but it's still going from 29.5" to 31" I would think that would screw up the speedo. hmm I guess I'll find out. thanks for the info!

That's what I thought too but who knows. The mpg is more important but oh well. Enjoy
