That's a good point on the beaten beaters. I test drove a 2012 a few weeks back that felt like every bolt needed a generous helping of loctite. For a vehicle with less than 30k miles on it, it had...

Personally, I think I'd go with the auto. I've driven nothing but manual transmissions for 20 years now, but I'm considering trading in my 2013 manual for an automatic. It shifts like the 1980s flat...

That looks awesome man. Does that light up full time or just when the lockers are engaged? And how are you liking the 4.56s? That's what I'm looking to regear to.

Wow, that sucks. I thought stealing cars was going out of style. Glad to hear it didn't slow you down though. I'll be looking for those pics :beer:

Don't let them off the hook if they try to give you the same crap they gave me (claimed it was the evaporator deicing). At the time it seemed to be a reasonable response, however seeing Elochi's post...

I'm in the same boat. I read all the just get 35s threads too, but I never thought I'd want to go that big. Within a month, I was wishing I had gone with 35s. Will probably upgrade in a month or two....

Yeah, you can get aftermarket 4.10s, but when I was looking, the 4.10s and 3.73s were nearly twice the price of the higher ratios. The person I spoke with at my local shop claims it was because those...

That's definitely a side effect I don't love. I really feel like the transmission gears could be spaced wider to accommodate a shorter low gear and taller high gear. Currently, at most speeds I...

This is all great info. What BB1857 said about eventually ending up with 35s is spot on. I'll probably take JeepHerz's advice and sell the 33s while they're still new to minimize my losses. It sounds...
