Wicked Wheel 2 short review

I've had the WW2 installed in my truck now for 3000 miles. The wheel may make a tad more whistle then stock in the cab. It definitely shines in the towing department. Stock California truck, 5 speed and 3.73 gears made it a pooch with a loaded trailer.

I've hauled 7500lbs (17000+/- GCVW) on my skidsteer trailer and it motored up most every grade in my way with minimal effort in overdrive. On the freeway while towing its even better with the added engine RPMs/increased airflow. I highly recommend it and have been happy with the $220 investment.

Did you go with a smaller exhaust housing too? I just ordered a 1.0 housing and riff raffs version of the WW2 so we'll see how that setup is in a week or so.

I did go to the 1.0 turbine housing. It definitely helps get it moving!

---Maybe it does have 3.55s. I didn't realize they didn't get 3.73s. I definitely prefer to use my 4.10 geared truck, but it's a regular cab.

I thought our trucks already had the ww2 stock? I think it was a upgrade for the '99-'03?
