I have the 2.5l. I plan on getting headers and stuff to make my engine stronger, but 4.88 gears will help a lot with power with 33s, from what I've heard.

Oh and are you planning on selling your old bumper once the new one comes? I'm assuming you're talking about the front one. If so, I call dibs.

I just ordered my rims last night. As soon as they get here, I will be going and getting them installed with new tires.

^^ you could have the front bumper if you want... but I got into an accident and its in two pieces and bent upwards lol

So after I got my tires I got my alignment checked and he said (as best as my memory is) that my camber? Or caster? I don't remember was off in the - and + and that w can't align it without changing the bolts with some kind of kit. $200 bucks for labor, the kit, and alignment. Is that a good deal or do you think he is b.s. Ing me? I also would do it after my lift is on. I kinda want a second opinion from another place to.

did they give you a report of how far the camber and caster was off?
i know that you have to adjust both when you lift/lower the suspension but idk as far as bigger tires go
