Agree 100%. Spent some time on VWVortex on its golden years and I learned that pretty quick.

Also agreed. He takes many of the common misconceptions and puts them to the test. He even says that many were his long-held beliefs too. Until he conducted the tests that is.

He provides relevant data and gives solid conclusions.

I know some YTubers really get into the weeds for the sake of the data, but donít always translate well into real world scenarios or if it even makes a difference.

I found Tinkerers channel by chance and watched many of them. I liked the ones about the lift and if there is really a need for UCA or the one about the long travel suspension.

I recently found Tinkerers channel because of one of his products being promoted on another channel I watch. I enjoyed the skinny tire video and his information makes a lot of sense. I'd still run wide tires because I like the visual much more but can't argue his logic.

Also, he made a video explaining KDSS performance differences from stock sway bar setups. It's also a very eye opening video.

Now to start looking for a skinny 37...

Info on the skinny 37 please lol.

I am looking at the 255/85 next, so I will go head and plan on the bmc. I also have the high clearance cut on my front bumper, so hopefully nothing needed on the front end. Looks like I will need some work on the fender too.
