I'll have pictures tomorrow of the lights

[QUOTE=Ron2003x;2572542]Got it back from the shop with my 4:56 gears. WOW the difference!!! Put a couple of stickers on. Now waiting to go go climb something so I can convince myself to get lockers

what engine and tranny do you have??? I just ripped out my rear axle and sent it off to have the locker and 4.56 gears put in. The front one is going as soon as the rear gets back for the same treatment. I am just wondering where you notice the difference the most. I have the I6 with the 6spd tranny with 35s and would love to be able to take off in 2nd gear from a stop easily again. hoping the new gearing will do it.

I have the I6 with a 5sp manual, and 33's. It had stock 3:07's. Had to rap it up just to take off. Spent most of my time in 3rd, 5th wasn't usable. Was turning 2250 in fourth at 68-70mph. Now... First feel like I'm in 4lo (so to speak) in 5th I'm turning 2500ish at 65mph, and have the a joy to pass without having to down shift. Will know more about mileage in a few days. I think it's going to improve some ( was getting 15-17 depending on which way the wind was blowing)

Never used it, I've just used kyrlon fusion, I say try it on something small, some self etching primer never hurt anyone though.
