guess ill have to save up and try it out. The directions seem pretty simple. One cut with a sawzall, no welding, clamps included. I'm wondering how easy it would be to have the output of the cutout send the exhaust into a flowmaster 10 series can? http://www.flowmastermufflers.com/super-10-series/. So you have a choice of stock and super 10 instead of stock and dumped, idea being that the super 10 would give a deeper boomier sound vs the cutout.
This truck looks awesome! If you don't mind me asking... What are your thoughts on the 7.5" RC Lift so far? Any particular notes or tidbits to share after driving around on it for awhile? Also curious to know, would the stock rims, from your original post in this build thread (with the same 35" tires) have cleared the knuckles? If so how would they compare in offset to the current setup (stick out/in further)? Keep it up dude, truck is looking great.

Disclaimer: Not a mechanic, and I love this truck. This time of year i leave it in Auto. I noticed the benefits when going up slick wet driveways. Also when going up wet ramps in parking garage. Also when my wife is driving I have her leave it in auto mode. Wet parking garage ramps are too slick for 2WD mode (w/no weight in the rear) because traction control lights come on and the truck struggles for a few seconds, so leaving it in Auto is perfect for that situation. Especially since if i had put in 4 Hi the front end would bind as I make the corners in the parking garage prior to going up the next ramp. In summary 4 Auto is great for wet/greasy/slick conditions or when your wife is driving. I did some tests pulling into fast moving traffic onto and from a wet roadway (left plenty of space) in 2WD, Auto and 4Hi . In 2WD the traction control lights come on as the rears spin and acceleration is poor. In Auto as the rear starts to spin it engages/disengages the clutch packs in the Transfer Case and starts transferring power up into the front wheels (this clutch engagement wasn't noticeable too me, i suspect it happens almost instantly). In 4WD HI my rear tells me the acceleration was the same as in Auto as far as I could perceive. However the front was binding as i was making the slow tight turns on wet pavement. I "think" I can feel a little more weight in the steering wheel and heavier body motion when its in Auto mode vs 2WD. I notices this when going overspeed humps it "feels" a little different. I asked my wife and she says she couldn't tell the difference. I don't know if i'm detecting phantom motion or its just responding a little differently going over bumps.
