Note: This is a 12,000 lb vehicle, you do not expect it to do burn outs, let alone get sideways with a locker in the rear and dually rear tires, while in 3rd gear. I love mine!
BTW, with a $20 resistor style "computer" I went from just under 10 mpg to just over 12 mpg. Only a little over 6 mpg towing my 40' 5th wheel camper.
I found out that the lift kit was a home made setup. The previous owner did a leaf spring conversion on the front end. That kinda sours me a little on the deal because I didnt wanna have to deal with checking over somebodys fab work.
