It's been a while, thought I"d dump some pics

Some of you may remember my struggles with towing my trailer earlier this year, having just purchased by V10 EX, replacing a Chevy Duramax as a tow rig. A few of you led me down the right path in choosing to upgrade the axle gears to 5.13s. It pulls great now on my smaller set of tires, 32.6" tall. I recently decided to buy a second set for mild off road use and light towing; I went with some 37" Cooper STT Pros. Great tires and it drives great unloaded and pulls a car on a car trailer just fine. I wouldn't want to do pull my heavy trailer with them though which is why I'm keeping the 32.6" tires. Also added an Auburn ECTED electric locker to the front diff when doing the gear swap so it'll work well off road.
Sure does make that Tahoe look small:






the truck has been great, no issues, looking forward to getting it on some trails soon!

PIcs are up now. Without the gears I would have sold it and been forced to buy a diesel.

Thanks! Still a little more to go but it's all the little things so it'll take a while.

Looks good! I wish they made those headlights with a single projector or double projectors. I would be all over them.

I knew that you would like those deep gears.
