Will do. For now, they are maybe 1/3 of the way down. In a week I am bringing it back for a re-torque and another alignment. It rides great! I wont lie, I do kinda wish I had gone with 37's, but the 35's do look good. Plenty of clearance and they look nice. Power difference is barely noticeable from the slightly bigger tires, but I did notice on the freeway that the M/T's do drag a ton!

By the way, would you recommend I run these tires at the pressures on the door? The shop had them at 65 psi!

Run them at the door psi. I ran my swampers for 10k miles at the load e 60psi. Shop dropped em to 35psi a few months back. It rides quite a bit better, just noiser!! It has more rolling resistance and droppee the power and mpg a tad.

With that said try both, I bet you keep the door psi. I like it better

ok, I already dropped them to 50psi, but I will bring it down a little more.

by the way, is the problem with getting 4.56 gears that the carrier is the wrong size? I will be leaving the 3.91's in for now, but if I got to 37's some day, I will want to get 4.56's in there.

I'm going to 4.56's here soon hopefully. Also going to 37's. Toying around with the idea of trying to stuff some 38's. It looks like I might have a bit more wheel well gap than you still though. May not though hard to tell from pics

This is what my coilover looks like

Damn Zeus, you're coilovers are maxed out aren they? How about a full body shot....

Silver, the shop is being really hush hush about what they are doing. They won't tell me exactly what their doing. Ive even called Yukon a few times, only once did i get any information. What they told me was ONE shop in the US is ahead ofthe curve on making thse gears work. That shop is workig wit the Engineers at Yukon. This shop is Eastern Offroad thats going to do my truck. My truck will be the first geared 4.56 ZF 4x4 period!! Their almost postive they can modify the LSD carrier to work, but for sure can the open diff. What sucks is if you dont do this, you won't have gears for a long long time. Yukon isnt even gonna start their R&D until they sell their overstock of coventional 9.25" rearend. That will be a long time....
