Loved your build. You should have no problem selling this. If you were closer I would consider buying!

Thanks! I tried to price it reasonably for a quick sale.

From the description in your signature, we have similar builds. How did the mileage change with the 4.56's? Debating doing that in the next few years.

Same here. Hows the 4dr midsize vs kids seating space? Thats my one worry if I switch to a 4dr midsize truck. A flipac type approach paired with our tent trailer would be an interesting option. Full family mode or dads escape pod. LOL

A flat bed FWC would be killer but thats a big investment. Curious to see what the new aluminum flipac looks like.

The 4 door is fine for the family. It's a little tight for my wife because the little one is still rear facing. As soon as she turns around, we'll be fine.

Dad's escape pod is definitely a possibility! Plenty of room.

The flatbed would be great, but you're probably looking at $30K. Buy mine instead!

You can park in normal spots, the CG is low, and you hardly notice it's on there. Just running some errands with the kids...

You will be happy with the 4.56's. I gained my power back and probably got about 2 mpg's back. Well worth the cost.

Thanks for the info. Do you usually do a lot of freeway driving? Manual or AT? I'm worried about the freeway RPM's with lower gears since the MT overdrive is lower than the AT overdrive. It would be undoubtedly better off- road. I often find myself in 4th or 5th in 4LO, just so I don't have to keep switching back and forth.
