How Did It Work Out?
We honestly couldn't be more happy with the way this truck is working. Well, that's not entirely true-we'll have to address the front ABS brake issues soon. But otherwise we're stoked at what's been turned out. Though we had to go out for some testing before the G2 gears were installed, the truck worked really well in the dirt, and the F-O-A shocks and Atlas leafs worked on the Fabworx build really well. There was a lot of flex, but no need for a sway bar as it kept fairly level through corners. Once we had the gears installed the truck really seemed to scream. The 37-inches tires and Liquid Metal wheels we got from Discount Tire didn't seem to add much drag at all with the new gear ratio.
