    Yeah, 30psi in 235/80's under my 9000lb truck looked about like the 255/85's on my jeep do at at perhaps 10-12psi. And worked about as well too! It's all relative. I've had the truck down to...

    Hmm. KojakJKU, you were running 285/70R17's if I recall correctly. I believe this is the same size that Redline is running, also with a right pull. Anyone else running that size care to report??

    I don't think you can blame the pull on tread design... If that was the case, the tires would be pulling on everyone's ride, because we all have the same tread. :) There has to be something goofy...

    I would think it somewhat unlikely that 4psi made that much difference. ?? More likely that they were squirrely when new due to the mold release compound, and you may have just burned it off as you...

    Steering column should be fine as far as I know. You'll need the box and the steering shaft that goes from the firewall to the box. And the pump and lines, of course. :) Power brakes should be...

    If you want a quick and dirty answer, you'll be fine bumping 1" or even 2" unless you're constantly towing the max rated capacity. If you're towing or hauling, and use the towing mode, it should do...

    Even if you stay with a more narrow tire, like a 235/80R17 or 255/80R17, your mileage is not going to improve, and likely it's going to get a little worse. The only way taller tires can improve...

    With a vehicle like the XJ, which has excellent flexibility, TT's are the hot ticket for simplicity.

    First priority if you don't already have it would be a front sway bar disconnect. That will...

    That is correct. The newer (2003+) "2500" AWD vans were just cargo versions of the half ton people hauler van. They have 6-lug wheels, not 8-lug, a 10 bolt rear axle, and the little 7.25" front...

    We beat the living tar out of a few of them at work and had no issues at all. Driving down the road it doesn't do much for me, but put a trailer on the back and back up and it's like using a giant...

    Oh true dat!! If you can find a quadrasteer truck with lower miles, they are awesome!! I think they were all crew cab "1500" trucks, which were the same as the slightly later 1500HD. Or perhaps...

    A well built 4l60 is a great trans, certainly nothing to be afraid of. Sounds like something may not be right though if you're running three coolers and the trans is overheating.

    Best thing you...

    I assume a big part of the decision to go to 4.56 was a good price on the front axle, but 4.56 gears with 33's and no overdrive and a 292 is NOT what I'd call ideal gearing...

    Only with the diesel, or perhaps an 8.1. As far as I know, all 6.0L 2500HD's came with 4.10 axles, or at least they did after 2003. And ALL 1500HD's are 6.0l trucks with 3.73 gears. And ALL...

    The difference between the 1500HD and 2500HD of that era is that the 1500 has 3.73 axle gearing and a semi-floater rear axle, while the 2500 has 4.10 gearing and a full floater 14 bolt.

    Yeah, I'm doing the 15/45 - 16/45 swap thing too. I figure if I toss in the EX 1st gear, I can run 16/45 all the time pretty much. If I could do 1-3, then 15/40 would probably work well, and if I...
