After watching this, I've decided @Oscar Indy harvests Rocky Mountain Oysters without using his hands... :lipssealed:
His little video about highway driving just cost me another grand in parts. :crying:
4.88s on the way...:rock:
If I had that kind of talent I wouldn't have had to pay for my gears with cash.....

Hey I'm glad you found this useful. Some other shmo dismissed it in that other thread in favor of the chart posted. Funny story.... That chart isn't for this vehicle.

Ya, I'd been chewing this for awhile. Your little chat describes EXACTLY what I'm dealing with the 7/8 shifting (while not necessarily a huge issue, drives me crazy) and the debating between 4.56/4.88.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

The first of four boxes arrived today... :champagne:
Two more to arrive on Christmas Eve, and number four scheduled next Friday.
THEN the Super-Duper Gladiator goes in for a little sumthin-sumthin… :rock:

Thanks!
Here's the bar:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BB2ZHX5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s03?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I wasn't a fan of the logo cut on the face, so I covered it with a flag plate:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N2ZJ1DD/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1
mounted in a Bumper Thumper:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MYZSEAW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
If you're a front plate state, you wouldn't have to worry about the flag.

I was set to order the Bull Bar when I noticed that it would interfere with sensors. I have the exact stock truck as you and was wondering if you know anything about that. It also appears that you removed the splash guard instead of cutting holes. I would probably do the same.

ummm, what sensors?
All the smart cruise, anti-collision stuff is up behind the rearview mirror.
The front Cam is slightly blocked, but usable.

@JP1 doesn't use cameras, he has eagle eyes...
