It didn't take me long to stack 800 miles on them. (I am demanding a company truck soon) so I have a god feel for them:

Excellent road manners, and quiet.

The quiet is relative. I am comparing them to those mud tires I have been stuffing on the last few years. Compared to the street tires they have a slight hum at highway speed. They balanced perfectly, the last couple sets of 34 inch tires I had were a bastard to balance.

I have not done a big off-road test yet, I had to drag an equipment trailer of a mountain, but as most of you have seen on the news, the northwest is dry as a popcorn fart. I need to find some mud

Cool. After you've used 'em off-road, I'd be curious to hear what you think.

I'm thinking about getting some new tires and possibly wheels this Spring. So, I'm not in a rush. But, I like to be thorough in looking at different options. :thumbs:

Just got back from an extented weekend little road trip. It was about a 500 round trip and with the 6.2L I averaged about 17.5 mpg. I was impressed.

Actually drove it. It's been a few weeks since I last took it for a spin.

Half way between here and there.
I changed out all the hoses on the 02. The original ones seemed to be in great shape but I figured I was on borrowed time. $86 bucks for the hoses on Rock Auto. Took me two three hours to accomplish. Refilled with fresh AMSOIL Antifreeze/Coolant. It took 2.5 gallons to fill it back up. I would post some pictures but my Photobucket account is not letting my pictures from my phone upload.

TX, where else should I be?
The other "new modification" photo spot. The big 4x4s moved enough gravel around that I wasn't afraid of getting high centered.

My truck may have had better clearance but this little car can climb some crazy gravel slopes.

"Struggles a bit at 7200 ft??" :wtf?: [emoji38]
The elevation of Santa Fe. Merging and passing up here is a completely different experience. It's like driving a car from the 70s or 80s. Give it had gas and it mainly just makes noise.

Seen this on another forum and decided I needed to do it. I just have to get my carpet and contact cement to finish it.
