by that you're saying that after i install my 35s my axles are spinning faster even though i have a bigger radius tires? stock tires my speedo would read let say 60 mph and now when my speedo reads 60 i'm going slower? uuhhh no

impossible is a big word. Try it your self some time.. cruize around town on 2-3 gear and see what mpg you get and then cruize on 5th gear and see what mpg u get.
I just went from 33s to 35s and I get better mileage now. I always get gas around 200 miles and about 16 gallons. Last 3 tanks I made it past 210 and still put in about 16 gallons. That may not seem like much but without fixing speedo, i am actually driving more than that so the improvement is that much bigger. MPG went from around 15 to almost 17 on each of last tanks...impressive....and it looks so much better...

my question for all is on condensation. I get water from exhaust dripping from tailpipe and from right in front of muffler through transfer case skid...I think it is more than it should be while idling...I let it idle for about 4 minutes when I ran in the house and had 2 puddles of about 6 inches...whats with that?

Yes, just as you described. But I believe it has to do with humidity in the air.
Just getting to work is an adventure.

I just ordered a 29 tooth gear from ebay. The seller also says he has 27 tooth gear. I mentioned to him that some one i know "might" be interested in it. I'll see what he says and i'll let you guys know.
