Can confirm it feels awesome with 4.88’s and 39’s. The 2.0T is a little beast and it was definitely ’drivable’ with stock 4.10’s but the 4.88’s made it peppy again. I would see 8th gear about 60% of the time on the highway before, now it’s in 8th about 99% of the time unless I’m pulling a steep hill. It also accelerates effortlessly now.

The steering is really tight now too. Shawn installed the steer smarts pro aluminum tie rod, drag link, Reid racing knuckles, and dynatrac HD ball joints. I used to have a slight dead spot in the middle of the steering but now it’s very responsive.
Just big Lego's... :rock:

So the Mrs. finally got behind the wheel of Fat Ninja to see how she did with a manual off road. SHE HATED it BUT she also nailed it and actually did really good on the obstacles she hit.

We ran a trial with some friends and Mischief Maker the other night and you can see Kimberly in the Jeep at 3:55.
