    Finally Got Some 32’s

    We’ll 31.6” technically. I’ve wanted some since I got the truck in 2011 and I finally did it. I like how it came out. I had to do some trimming in the front but nothing too bad. So far the 3.55 gears are ok. I’m driving it for a while before I decide if I want to spend more on 4.10’s.

    FYI: yakima rack fit guide is wrong!

    If you're purchasing a rack from Yakima, their online fit guide is wrong. It says you need 48" crossbars, when you actually need 58" bars. As you were.
