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!

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.

wow really? that will definitely work out to my advantage if I'm too lazy to install my lift right away. how'd you go about recalibrating the speedometer?

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!

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
