It is. If your ever in Auburn shoot me a PM or if you do any wheeling up here. Cant go WOT in the rain at less then 30mph otherwise she will quick the rear end out, pretty fun, gotta stay on top of her though.

Contemplating 4.10 'cause I want to go 33" eventually. But I have SO MUCH torque I don't really see the point. Even on the trails, it completely transformed the vehicle.

Re: Sierra Chapter Rigs

Just took my newly lifted and trimmed rig out to Carnegie in Tracy today for an inaugural run. Still need to do bump stops and trim the rear fenders but she did great! Awesome weather for some light wheelin' too!
