    Yeah sorry i couldn't make to FR42 on Sunday, but as i mentioned, i had severe problems with getting the pinion gear out of it's carrier unit. But finally got it all put together today and went out down the road and did alittle flex and gear ratio testing, nothing major, but here's what i did,,,

    Well first off,,, the paint i chose for those wheels was supposed to be the same color as the factory grey/silver color as i had already had one wheel of this color, well it didn't turn out that way, so they are in for another repainting and are soon to be black. As far as gears go, they are 4.10 with a 265/75r16 tire size and i am very suprised as to how they are running, i had 3.73 in the rear and ther really isn't much difference with the way it drives, you can really only tell by looking at the speedo and you just know that you aren't going as fast as it says, but the crawl ratio is alot nicer now too, man it's nice and i'm ready to go out and check it out on the hills soon.
