From The Driver Seat
After taking the truck for a test drive, we noticed a couple of problems. Primarily with the intake and exhaust. First, the intake whistles when accelerating on the highway. It’s annoying and it’s constant. Also, the exhaust had a major leak at the connection of the Y-pipe and head pipe. This is because we had to reuse the factory clamp and with the new pipe not being the exact same size, it could not tighten down fully over the connection. The suspension, however, is amazing. It added 6 inches of lift and made the truck ride better than factory. With the 35-inch Red Letter Grabbers, the total height difference was about 8 inches. The upgraded leaf springs in the rear add support for when the owner hauls motorcycles and gear in the bed. The BMF wheels are great looking and tough enough for mild off-roading and the Grabbers are robust enough for the dirt, but quiet and compliant on the road.
