Hawkeye,
Hey, I'm interested in the bumper brace. I haven't got my truck lifted yet, hopefully by next month I'll have the 3" body lift on the truck. Oh, how are Pro Comp tires working out on the street? I'm still debating on the type of tires to get.

They are really starting to work good. I think they just needed to be broken in a little because the ride is much much better. We have been flooding like mad here all last week and they do great in the pouring rain, especially for such an aggressive tire. The AT's on my wife's Durango are doing equally well, rain and otherwise. Just so you know, the braces I made are because of two reasons.
A. When you do the body lift, the brackets that raise the front bumper are C shaped. They have a little give to them and the weight of the bumper makes it so that if you grab it you can wiggle it a little.
B. In addition to A. When I put the Pre Runner Bar on the bumper that just added some more leverage to the problem.

I made 1 brace for each side that helps eliminate that play. Nothing Fancy.

What kind of flowmaster exast do u have?
I have looked all over their webpage and have only found the sos (single out side). I want duals and i thought that you said that you had them. I would lk some info if you have it. How much did it cost etc....
What kind of muffler did you get and how do you like it?
I read this whole post and it has really helped me. I am thinking about doing the EXACT same thing that you did. I looked at the x-terrains a couple of weeks ago and I realy like them.
Thanks,
Andrew
