      When I bought it I was planning on getting some 31s and throwing some shackles on, but after driving around for awhile, I am really enjoying my gas mileage with the stock setup. So now I'm stuck trying to decide between 3 things. Should I...

      1.) Stick with original plans, buy some 31s and possibly tt and shackles
      2.) Lower it 2"
      3.) or spend some money on a decent sub/amp combo

      Sub and amp combo ! Cheaper than New tires , and also you'll keep the Mpg's you like ! , lowering that style suspension is hard on the stock steering components and also is normally a rough ride with the Torsion twisted tighter than stock , Just My 0.2

      Sub and amp vote for me. Adding a sub and amp to my non-JBL OEM stereo was one of the first things that I planned to change.

      Get a Mac intake and some exhaust to get a few more ponies freed up in case you lift it.
