It was a joke. VW got busted for have "illegal emissions" on their TDIs. Apparently they make more smog than peterbilt lol
My buddy had an older Jetta that got 60 mpg pretty regularly on the interstate if he didn't push it too much
Anything over SKINNY 32s is a hard fit on a kick/tracker with fenders and sheetmetal. It takes 4 inches and slight trimming just to clear those. Extending the wb and building bumpers helps alot with fitment over stock though
There are 3 or 4 different ratios you could end up with and I think all of the 3rds are aluminum. The grand vitara or XL7 is steel I think. I can't remember all the differences at the moment. May as well find a pair of the factory 5.12s while you're at it?
