I think if you swapped out those 38s for a set of 44s or maybe 48s (you got fender room) that might drop your gearing enough, make sure you get bias ply Iroks though, anything else and it wont do a thing.

Talking

Magnets and Slick 50 will get you there. Better yet, try the new and improved product, "Slick 60!"

Maybe haul a smaller, more efficient vehicle on the back to use for the lunch trips home.

I think you need the Bagger 288 to suitably frighten the townspeople while insuring a safe, smooth, and traffic free commute.
