Nice Ute bro looks good sitting on those 19's you running ultra lows on the rears is it still legal?. Do you have a side pic of the rear wheels I know SL's on the rears leaves a mean gap just cant be stuffed with the defect hassles thou. How does it drive with 4.11 gears thinking of going that way as i don't do much highway driving. I'd say Turbo unless your in to superchargers but the cam and heads should keep you happy for while.

On the ute the super lows sat a little high in the rear for my liking so I put the ultras in. The rear sits at exactly 100mmm but the flanges for my cars are unfortunately at about 80mm. Doesn't scrape much so for now I don't really care. Could get it up about 10mm just grinding the flange up a bit. If I get pinned I'll get an exhaust shop to make it higher. Yeah the cam should keep me entertained for now and I'll go from there.

Oh and the 4.11's are great. Car cruises so much nicer now. Takes off smoother. Everything. And to be honest is still quiet on the highway. Sits at 1750ish rpm at 100kph.
Thanks for the info sounds good the 6spd really helps with the highway driving. I just want the low down acceleration from the lack of a turbo for now lol. Yeah ultras seems like the way to go but il have to think about it after the last few slammed cars i just don't wants to scrape on everything.Are you installing the cam your self? or a workshop?.

Nice looking Ute Josh. Rims look great.

I have 3.9's in my diff currently. I find these a touch more user friendly for take off and highway speeds but none the less, 4.11's were good.
