It pretty much feels like the stock truck did, like a stiff 2500. No sagging after about 7k miles. All the parts seemed good, although one of the bolts was too short for my taste, and the...

Mpg

I have a RC 5" lift with 35" toyo MT tires. I lost 2-3 MPG and now get between 9-11 depending on where/how I'm driving (I don't drive fast). When I pull my small loaded Toyhauler, I lose about...

Fender flares

I ended up ordering a set of Bushwackers pocket style from 4wheelonline, they had the best price I could find shipped, only about $100 more a set than the cheaper sets on Ebay. Hopefully they come...

Correct, there are no C clips, just pull the 4 bolts and the wheel assembly pulls out with the axle.

Fender flares

I want to add some fender flares next, probably the pocket style bolt-on look. I was leaning towards the ones made by Bushwacker. Looks like EGR makes a nice set and there are several different ,...

R/C lift

I went with a Rough Country 5" lift (actual lift was about 4.5" front with new coils and 4" rear with block). I ordered it from TGC so I could get it with Bilstiens, and I ordered the Bilstien...

Stock with 33s (285/70/17) on stock wheels. I'm pretty sure 305/70/17 would fit stock with no issues as well. Most 35"s would too with just a level kit, but some (like Toyo M/T) are wider than...

Well it's hard to say about the RPMs, with the taller ratio (taller tires) there's more load (less mechanical advantage, gears are spread further apart, and the larger tires cause more drag) and the...

Tire size

Yes, a larger tire will roll further than a smaller one with one revolution, but to say that has to equal better MPG is a very long stretch. I agree that most of our trucks come geared lower than...

The chart is really just for comparison between the ratios, for example, if he wanted to match the stock ratio with 35" tires, 4.56 would be the closest match. This one is set at 65 mph (I think,...

I almost got the Kore kit, I liked it a lot. The only thing I didn't like was even though it lifts the front about 2 1/2-3", it does not re-center the axle and it uses the stock control arms. The...

I also have a 2011 2500 4x4 Hemi, but with 3.73 gears and traction aids front and rear. I have a 5" lift with 35" tires. I think 4.10 gears would be perfect for 35" tires, unless you pull heavy...

Lifting 2011 2500

Is it a 4x4? I'll assume it is. Whats is the stock gear ratio?, probably a 3.73 or 4.10. Is it a Hemi or diesel? The disels weigh almost 1,000# more on the front and typically the better kits have...

Y pipe and exhaust on a 2500?

There's lots of information about exhausts for the various 1/2 ton Hemi trucks here, not so much on the 3/4 ton 2500 trucks that more often than not are diesel motors. I have a 2011 2500 4x4 Hemi,...
