FROM THE DRIVER SEAT
Well, we nailed the wheel/tire combo. The offset is perfect, and the relatively tall sidewalls combined with the Ground Force suspension tuning make for a comfortable ride, even with a heavy load in the bed. One thing we did notice is that the Panhard bar mount hits the new dual exhaust when the suspension bottoms out. Our kit is not exactly the off-the-shelf kit you'd get from Magnaflow, as they made this just for this truck, but if you were lowering your truck more than our 2/3 drop, consider the dual-side exit kits and not the rear exit. The exhaust note is one of our favorite additions so far, with a noticeable rumble when you fire the truck up that quickly drops down to a smooth, quiet idle. We don't have fuel economy numbers yet, but the owner is keeping track, so we'll update you in a future issue.
