Yours' too Claypot, any reason the 255/85s instead of 265's 75s? More suited to your off-roading?
How much lift ya running?
The Jack is running standard T Bars, wound up to 2", they can go to 3" but the feel pretty bad and don't work as well. 65mm lift rear HD coils, custom height, ironman foam cells all round. She rides real nice with this setup!

Was running 265/75s (31.5" - 32" depending on brand) before, but they looked a little small, so wanted to go for a 33", but thought the 285/75's might stick out past the guards too far (80 series LC wheels stick out further), so after a bit of research found the 255/85's which are a 33.3" tyre, got a set and have to say i'm pretty happy with them. I've since found a set of wide track flares, so the next set of treads will be 285/75's.

Not the best pics I know, but they're better than nothing at all. First pics of the supercharger on my 3.5 Jack (it's been on for a while now, I've just been slack :drool: )

$5500 from memory, but I got the blower a bit cheaper as it was excess stock so add a cppl of hundred for that. Not cheap, but definitely something thats a bit individual.

The one and only! Good engine...just thirsty. Still trying to figure out what the impact of the SC is on the (lack of) fuel economy.
