    Yes it is a manual. With the low gearing producing higher rpm's than I'm used to I'm even more motivated to get those mods happening.

    I do that sometimes, my rpm thing is cruising along in 6th at highway speeds well over 2000. It just verifies I got what I need for what I'm looking to do with it. 👍

    I finally got financially situated to get started on mods back in December. Getting the right tires shipped has kept me from putting it all together; I ordered five 35x12.5R17s and first received 1 right tire and four 18s. They replaced the 18s with 4 right size with the wrong tread, if I hadn't already mounted the 1 right one as a spare I might have kept the 4 and replaced the 1. I was installing the tire carrier when I got the call about the four wrong tread tires arriving.

    There it is. Now I just have to trim the fenders and order rock sliders at the very least.
