Tires too tall for 3.73. Basically have to stay in 5th all the time which isnít the worst I I guess. Shouldnít really be towing in 6th anyway..

Finally got around to installing my retroshop headlights. Couldn't be happier, just need to fine tune the height adjustments and I'll be set.

Side note. I installed a deezee tailgate assist. It fits ok and keeps the tailgate from slamming down. I'll give a review after it gets more use.
FYI. Tailgate assist is a POS. Already took it off

I have all new steering linkage, new axlenujoints, new balljoints. No sway bar. And still have what sounds like a clunk in the left front.
