Will going from 32s to 33s really make that much of a difference in rpms?

got my shackle flip done. added another leaf to my bastard pack to regain some of the lost height. it was gonna be hit or miss, and im thinkin this was a hit. the suspension feels great, not too stiff, and the leafs have plenty of arch. i went all out (for the most part) and cleaned up the frame and bed while i was there.








now a few showoff shots.. took this last night, and got tagged for no front plate as i was leaving. ive only had the pleasure of meeting nice peace officers, but this guy was a complete dick. oh well.. and before you ask, yes superbrightleds.com is on my shit list, and yes its because my tail light doesnt work.


flexs really well.

Forgive my noobishness, but what does a shackle flip do?

Better geometry for droop. Increases the arc so when you bump, the leafs don't go into negative arc or a "S."

I ran 4.56s and a detroit with 31s at one point of time till I got 33s it was sick in the dirt the rpms weren't too bad on the freeway so 32s should be ok.
