that's what mine is, maybe is just the ride difference between the truck and it

Really seems like it could be a easy with the right tires, just like my truck more to put money into than that

Ya, I couldn't justify spending $400 on shocks. Especially when I still need to do a ton of stuff. Get the 8.8 regeared, put in, transfer case, driveshafts, and start buying parts for when it blows so I can punch it out and forge the whole bottom end to charge it. Would like to slam it with about 10-12lbs of boost! That's a year or so away though.

yup, trying to figure out what way I want to go. Turbo means complete custom setup, supercharger means big $$$$$, procharger means less money but not as much payback as a supercharger or turbo setup.

Leaning towards some head work, cam and a procharger. Of course larger injectors and pump, already have the tuner so that's an easy go! lol
