Anybody running the diesel version? Looking at both and canít decide. Diesel would be more convenient because we already have fuel delivered to the ranch. And the cost difference is negligible.

PLEASE report back on how you like those new springs. After I get my new bumpers and roof, I'm thinking I may go with the HD springs as well.

And it's not rough? I just got my new bumpers, roof, and cargo basket put on. Figured I will probably need stiffer springs for all the added weight. Just worried they were gonna be rougher.

I have some spring compressors that you can borrow if you decide to change them. I changed the springs on my 3010, so I am not anticipating much trouble.
