Hey Jimbo. Any updates on the spedo? Looking to re-fear my MT6 with 4.88s as well. Just wondering, why did you go with the brand of gears you chose? Any specific reason? I’m looking at Nitro.

Yes sir,
The tuner that I installed inline worked like a champ. It took a little finagleing on the phone with their support to get the software to program it working on Win10, but once it was, it was super easy. Just have all your parameters in hand before:
    Original Gears 3.91:1, new gears <4.88:1>
    Tire size Original (Mine were 265/75/16) and Current tire size (Mine are 305/70/16)
    The spedo was off by 17%
Now it's dead nuts on verified by Two GPS units.
Super easy to install after you program it. Just take out the driver side glove box (2 screws and a firm pull up) and it's all right there. Easy Peasy.

The improvements to pulling the trailer have been impressive. I was able to pull the 2,200# camper up and over the Rimrocker trail. I was able to climb up the highway 7% grades in 3-4th. (1st/2nd before). Made it to Ouray and back.

I don't know what happened, My wife woke me up at 4:30 AM and said something is burning in front of the house. I ran out in my underpants and fought it with the garden hose to keep it off the house. Stupid as shit, but I lost my mind.
I'm by no means an arson investigator, but I seriously doubt I'll ever know the origin/cause. Tucson fire was there in 2 minutes, They are just three streets over. TPD was there too.

There will be a lot of salvageable parts from this rig. I'm sure they will do some other AZFJ person good.
Before, from just back from the paint shop last summer.

I can’t believe this happened and it sucks! Sorry to hear this. I haven’t been part of this world for very long and haven’t seen you in a while, but missed you on the border run. Condolences
