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?

:D

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
