I'm not familiar with the suspension of the 09 but most wheels won't allow the 305/50/20 to clear the upper control arm on the 06-08.

It's 8 turns of the lug. I put them on the front only due to wider tires hitting the UCA. I can't tell the fronts are sticking out more than the rear, I think it's because of the shape of the fender.

I just did mine at 52k miles. They recommend every 50k on the 06. I was surprised at how "bad" they were. They were far from bad, but I would have thought they had a lot more miles on them than they...

I just eliminated my cats when I put my headers and y pipe on. I have a code for the rear cats. You can "stack non-foulers" and eliminate the code. Do a search on the non-foulers and you will see...

Pretty easy to tell....go out and punch the long peddle and count the black stripes on the road. If there is one, it's a peg leg...two means LSD.

That's not entirely true...my 3.55's have a lsd.

To the OP...I don't have any first hand experience, but from what I've read, going from 3.55's to 4.56 will be good for about .2 sec.

Whats the deal with changing the "fan settings"? Is that something that can be done with the superchips? I don't think I've ever seen that section.

Looking for a deal on gears.

I'm going to buy gears for my Ram, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any deals out there. Moe's has the set (front and rear w/ install kits) for $600. So far, that seems to be the cheapest.

I just put a set of Pacesetters on my truck. Not a bad job really. There are a couple "exta" steps that you have to take, but all-in-all, not bad.
