I can put all my camp stuff in and not hit 900 pounds. KM

Nice looking truck. Great upgrades, painted front end really changed the look.

Suspension upgrade to an Icon Stage 1, very nice. Huge improvement in feel and handling, no harshnes in ride, but vast improvement in handling. Much more secure feel on road, no shake compared to stock, response and smooth transition in turns.1 3/4 lift in front 0 back.Handles much better like no truck I have driven.

Now to look at tires for a needed traction improvement. KM

Not more than an inch diameter over the 245-70 17s on it. 265-70s or 65s on the 17 inch wheels. KM

Have not been to the track yet. Average current 0-60 times recorded on Torque Pro and data-logging with the GTX tuner, 5.67 seconds on the 245-70-17 OEM Michelin's and caned street tune. The custom performance BCB tune overwhelms the available traction. KM
