Not bad really...little stiffer than stock but, that's to be expected.

I like the wheels. Its good seeing a set of wheels that arent very common.

Thanks! That's exactly what I was goin for when i got 'em. I originally had a set of Ultra Motorsports Goliath 22x9.5's on it but, I slapped a curb in the snow and according to all the wheel repair shops I went to they couldn't fix it the way it was bent so I ended up with these for under 1k

Well......got the mounts made for the new fogs, just gotta wire 'em up. Noticed there is an OEM relay in the fuse panel installed for foglights even though my truck didn't come with them. I know there is an open plug in the dash for a factory switch (LH side?) i just got to do a little research to see where the harness leads are in the factory harness. If I can make that work then it'll save me from having to build a harness.

I did, however, get an email back from Ron over at Rons Machining Services letting me know he can set me up with 4.88 gears for around $450.....That's for US Standard Gear but, should suffice with proper lash, preload and pinion depth.

If you want a stockish feel 4.88 works. But go bigger with like a 5.13. You have a big enough tire for it. I mean I only have a 33 and am running 4.88s. The extra gear makes it nice and jumpy when you dance on the loud pedal.

I was considering running a taller gear. I haven't pulled the trigger yet.

Stock is fine with me but, I didn't throw Meats on for nothin.....She's gonna find a slop hole sooner than later and I don't plan on crawlin through it
