Yes, I can definitley feel a power loss going up the mountains. Well, doesnt get up them as easy anyway. One thing I'm not liking is the little bit of rear sway I'm feeling from the lift. Definitley gotta do something about that. Other then that I love it, tons of compliments already on it.

Looks nice. The only suggestion I would make is a little red stripe on the rims. Something to break up al the black.

Looks awesome man. I like the wheels and thires you put on as well. Any plans to change out the gears and maybe recoup some of that lost power?

Jeremy, plan on getting it tuned and hoping that will fix my speedo and gain more power and especially hopefully add some mpg back. I heard the tune will fix the shift points too but I dont know anything about this tuning stuff. I heard bullydog is the one to buy?

The tune will definitely help with the speedo and shift points. It will probably help it feel more responsive as well. I know of the bullydog programmer, but that's about it. I know several members on here are extremely happy with their custom tunes through blackbear or Diablo, both of which are site vendors. The best advice I could give there would be to look at all of them and try and make the best decision.
I'm assuming you're running 35s with that lift. Is that correct? If so, ideally you'd want 4.10 or 4.56 gears so your tranny isn't working so hard to push the added weight and bigger bulk. It should also help you get back a bit of fuel economy and lower end power.
