    How are you liking the wheel/tire combo? Did you regear (or whats your R&P ratio)?
    Fairly happy with them, still wish there was a good choice with an appropriate capacity in a 39 tire. I stuck with the stock 4:88s which puts my final ratio at ~3:77. Perfect for long freeway runs, turns about 2k rpm at 80mph. Def need 4low on really steep off-road grades though. Plenty of pep off the line, even with the gasser.

    Thanks! Yeah I wish there was something smaller too.... Not much under 42" sadly. I believe I have 4.30's Which would probably be a stretch.

    This is incredible. How do I get one? It's the perfect combo of things I've been looking for. Well done!
