I was thinking TruTrac and re-gear too (expensive for a 4x4), but the Drag Tires are just as effective for much less
The smaller tire dropped my gear ratio from 3.55 to 4.30 and with the sticky compound I can smash the gas pedal with full force from a dead stop at launch and will not peg leg, even with my open diff.

knocked over a half second off my 1/4 mile

plus I get the benefit of lowering the truck an additional 3"
Going 33" to 27" tire...turns my 2/3 drop into a 5/6 at the Track

I don't like lowered trucks, unless they are 4wheel drive, go fast and look like yours. Nice ride.

Any suggestions? haha...have any of you guys upgraded the factory alpine sound system? That may be something I'll do down the road that would be worth the cash

That wouldn't be as expensive for me, im only 2wd. but hell If i can pick up a wheel set up like yours, and some drag tires for less then ill just do that for a while if it takes that much time off your E.T. Plus sticky enough to get a good launch? hmmmmm

The only thing the alpine systems needs, IMO, is more bass. I think the system as it is now is pretty good, would be great with a larger sub.

Those are all worth it... well not the powersteps... save your money. If someone can't get in your truck just get them a ladder

You'll never be done for good. I keep trying to tell myself I'll stop and save for a while (for the lift), but then things just keep coming up. Once I get the exterior done the way I want I really will hold off for a while before I move on to any interior changes. As in maybe years...

Well tinted tails would be pretty cheap if you did it your self... $20-$30 for all the things you need, and it would look great with that color
