Default on second thought....

well fast you were right, i should have lowered the billstiens lol....the gas mileage is killing me...first off i havent been on much lately, i started back in college for a the next couple months in preperation for my red seal exam and havent had much free time between that and restoring an old yamaha 3 wheeler i picked up last fall...anyway i have a 70 km ( each way) trip to school and 11.9-12 mpg highway is killin me lol....so i think im gonna drop back to 1.4 on the bills and take out the rear spacer....any help is good at this point...plus in doing do i dont have to worry about an undersized tire, i wanna run 37" bfg ta/ko's ( 6lb lighter than my 35's) so they wont look so small...although i do love the looks i get and the stares...but the truck also rides like a tank, love the attention and looks but practicality is just not there for me.

I knew that was gonna happen. You'll like the 1.4" setting and no spacers better.

I'll never go back to rear spacers or max bilstiens. Just not worth it....

Sounds like your fix would be gears tho for mpg or whatever ya'll crazies call it

I've yet to feel this wobble... I'm rougher than stock but not rough by no means with the pro comps at 2.75. As for fuel I don't know mpg but I'm gettin 550 km on a 90L tank now with the trinity

This ^^^
I LOVE my 1.4 setting and I know you will as well
Yes, the MPG will take a hit as your truck is less aerodynamic now.....
Im considering on removing the lift and lowering the truck.....





IM KIDDING!
