If you haven't already ordered call me or email me at 832-526-2415 or sales@rivercityoffroad.

I'll respond almost immediately and will offer you guys here on the site a blanket 15% off on all RK products. Everything will ship directly to you so you don't have to come to Austin.

Also, I'm running 35" MTRs on a 2.5" BB and have no issues.

If you did already order then you definitely bought the right lift and RK is great to deal with as well. Smile

Thank you for the plug Ron!

I'm glad to hear that Marcus took care of you.

BTW, were you at Northern Tool a few weeks ago? I was there and saw a guy come through with a Mountain Edition and we exchanged waves.

Possibly, I am over there on a fairly regular basis. The last few weeks have been a blur with work and other obligations. Now I am going to have all these parts sitting in my garage with no time to install them.

So, lift on order, now for tires...
I was thinking of immediately going to 34s or 35s on my factory wheels which means I'd need to re-gear pretty soon.

...but now I am thinking I might just keep the 32s for for street duty and pick up a set of 17" Rubi take off wheels(like I already have) and get some 34s put on them that I can use when I want to go have some off road fun. That way I could get away with not having to re-gear (current are 3.73s) for a while. The 2.5" lift is not huge so the 32s don't look ridiculously small and I would maintain drivability (this is my daily driver after all).

Does that seem like a reasonable approach?

Do you have an auto or 6 speed?

I have 3.73s with a 6 speed on 35" MTRs and I get around just fine. I can even set the cruise at 70 and drive to Houston without any issues.

If you have an auto you would probably even be alright. I ran around in my wife's on 35s, stock wheels, and an auto for a while. It isnt't terrible and would be even better with a Superchips to correct the shift points.

Is it recommended to run 35s w/3.73s and an auto? No. Can you do it and probably not have much to bitch about? Yes.

I offer free shipping on most tires and I have 35x12.50R17 MTRs w/Kevlar on sale right now for $289/tire.

I can more or less anything you want, including Pit Bull but free shipping only applies on certain brands. Smile (Goodyear, BFG, Hankook, Cooper, General, and Yokohama off the top of my head)

Thanks!

Marcus
