ted...yeah i noticed that the edge's AMPG reading is typically off....just figured it's close enough to get an idea....turns out it was off by about 1MPG average on my trip down to and half way back from Crofton, MD.

Id love to swap my 3.77's for a set of 4:56's....would be nice to have a locking diff rear axle. The raptor has 4:10's hmmm I think 4:56's would pull better for me with 35's.. I just dont wanna diminish the hwy mileage...since iam dreaming I might as well dream I live down in Florida too ! lol

yea - i wnat the lockers more than the gears - front and rear on independant switches to so i can choose if i want true 4wd or not - there are lots of times when just a posi rear would be better and others when i really need the front puling hard

an unloaded gun is just an expensive paperwieght

you cant fix stupid - but remove warning labels and we can greatly reduce its main offenders !!

O for sure. I need both or I could always put on smaller tires. Cant see that happening tho :_) 4:56's and I could leave my OD on ! :)
