Third for ATS. They do have complete kits with shakles and mounts (mounts are a little spendy, but worth it to me). Very good to do business with. Just call and talk to them.

With 3.55, 5spd, 2wd regular cab truck, I'd get 20 on the highway pretty reliably...towing (on a mostly stock motor) would net anywhere from 8 to 15. Now that it's 4WD, I pretty much only tow or...

Would e-fuel/hpop + tunes on stock injectors deliver much of a performance upgrade? Or should I just plan on poneying up for everything?

My 2WD 96 diesel (reg cab, long bed), manual had a two piece. The 95 4WD (reg cab long bed) had a one piece. The hybrid I built out of those two has a custom one-piece that seems to be fine.

Is this at altitude or sea-level? You mentioned climbing "the mesa", do you know how high that is? If you are over 4,000 ft ASL, lowered boost (and higher EGTs) would be expected. Over 7,000 ft...

I'd be interested in a write-up and/or pictures. I was thinking the Chevy mirrors would work style-wise and not have the blind spot of the Dodge mirrors. I also like the way the Chevy/Ford setup...

Update: Good News and Bad News

Good news, all was going well. I really like the Trutrack. So much so, I hadn't bothered to get the front drive shaft rebuilt/modified yet. I also scored some Aluminum (sadly, not true Alcoas) 8"...

The problem with the OEM clips/nuts is they are not really nuts. They are soft metal designed to allow the bolt to cut threads into them. Look it up. That's great at the factory from an assembly...
