Hey Guys sorry for the delay, no internet in Amish Country, Pa.

I will probably play around with the tire size, as I need to get new tread anyway. I don't have a turbo and don't plan on putting one in, i love the simplicity of it even though the turbo is still really basic.
I figured it would scream with 4.88s I don't really want that much noise, but I will tow for another year or so and see about the gear MOD. FL is very flat. Orlando is about as flat as it gets. so I don't need lower gears, but if there was a worth while benefit to doing gears than I'm interested in it.

I haven't done much reading on tire size and gear ratio. I seems odd that changing gears and switching tires around didn't cancel each other out, although you did state the benefits of what you gained by doing so. I will think about that a bit more and probably do what you did.
Thanks again guys great info
