    Mines a daily driver as well, but I am looking forward to getting back on the quarter mile track again - after a couple decades - so the goal is to keep in the 500-650HP range. With the 5DSP tune, I am able to bounce from a street configuration all the way up to a +230HP configuration, with a light tow tune and a heavy tow tune thrown in. I've also found that I gained about 2-3MPG even with the +125HP tune.

    I've thought about buying property in County Clare and spending time there in the future - especially since you don't need citizenship to own land in Ireland. We'll see, but that's the dream.

    I would LOVE to live there. Great people who do not, for the most part, have any ill feelings toward Americans.

    Thanks, and yep, I do all the work myself. I was an ASE Certified Master Mechanic back a couple decades ago (Long in the tooth myself), but got out of it due to joint pain. I stepped away from even doing my own work for a number of years, but there's just something relaxing (most of the time LOL) from wrenching for me, and my last couple vehicles I have gotten back to working on my own stuff.
    Actually, that is just a level of the truck using the torsion bars. Since I plan to 1/4 mile drag it, there's no sense in raising it up, and using the torsion bars allows me to drop it before heading to the track.
    My grandfather was first generation and ended up in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin. I've been looking into getting the documentation to get an Irish passport myself, but I've hit a few snags so far with finding what I need. I went to Ireland for the first time a couple years ago when I visited my son in Germany (Air Force).

    I'm sorry, I missed this message. Those are 20x9 Mickey Thompson Deegan 38 Pro 2 wheels with an +18MM backspacing and have Open Country Toyo A/T 305/50R20's on them. The only rubbing I get is at full lock to the right.

    The fender flares are these:

    Again, I am sorry I missed your message...I hope this helps. Feel free to ask anything else, I'll help if I can.

    My family (O'Loughlin) is from The Burren in County Clare
