Thanks. I love it way more than the ZR2 design. I hate the Chevy front clip design. Sucks I didn't get the locker, but I didn't want all of the techno garb that comes with it anyways. Someone will come out with lockers for them sooner or later.

Never. That is for gassers that don't have the low end torque of the diesels. I lowered the gears on my first diesel and never again. The HD's are down to 3.31 gears now. My Ranger diesel that I'm building will have 3.08 gears and the other day I had my '06 King Ranch at 124 mph cruising at only about 2500 rpm's. lol For highway driving and mpg's it is awesome. Not like these things have neck breaking speed with the OE tires anyways.

Makes sense. I have the Colorado version with the MiniMax. Definately a torquey little motor. What size wheels did you go with? Whats the backspacing?

Thanks for posting!

Until Fuel or others start to release more with the retarded 120 mm bolt pattern, then might buy something I love instead of like.
