By 3" tires you mean 31,32,33?
Just a typo no biggie but curious as to your tire size.

I wouldnt bother with the regear and this is why:

- You have 4LO if u ever need to get real low.. even with bigger tires 4L is pretty pretty low.
- Yes the tires will slow u down from a roll.. but at any speed other than very low u always have the option of manually shifting down..
- Fuel economy.

PS: Can you tell us a story about who your R51 has performed in extreme desert summer?

Can the cooling and AC handle the middle east desert summer with no issues?

Or?

Very Happy

Sorry about the spam filter. We get a lot of spam
You may want to start a new thread with first word in caps and with minimal typos. The software looks for that

I am not the Admin just a lowly Moderator Very Happy
