Definitely enjoying your thread and thought I'd chime in. I bought the Firestone Destinations about a month ago after I put my 4" lift on. They're a good compromise and quiet on the road. If I were to do it again, I'd go with some BFG AT's or Goodyear Duratracs because they look quite a bit better. The Destinations looked more aggressive online than in person. Just a suggestion bud

Should have posted this earlier but it took a while to find and I kept getting crappy pics.

407 RWHP / 448 Torque. That's about 489 HP / 537 tq at the engine w/ manifolds and single exhaust.

I agree about needing a video. Street manners is why I'm at 2.5" lift and going 32's, probably MTR's. I've run everything okay w/ 31" Destinations as long as it's dry.

Pics of the JCR bumper/tire carrier unpainted. I'm leaning towards having it powder coated.

A little fun before new Duratrac 32's.

fourtyfourmagjr, 9.5 mpg to 14.5 mpg. It all depends on how much fun you're having.

Nice video I was hoping you would get better milage than that lol! That's about what I'm getting on 33s 4.10 gears 3spd auto in 4wd with crap winter gas. Much better than last year though when I was on 31s with 3.07s. So when summer rolls around I'm expecting 19mpg but we will see

So this is a bass ackwards build thread but look what I found on the PO's lap top.

I believe these were shot by the PO around 2008 at Lamar Walden's shop in Doraville, GA. Coming out, engine 2, a Hesco stoker. Going in is engine 3, an LS2. Current engine is #5.

That's the gross lift which I guess nobody looks at. Tappet lift 271 277
Lobe separation 115 may be more useful.

I trying to learn enough about to cams to see if this is a torque cam, top end cam, mid range cam, mild, aggressive, I don't know yet.
