I would probably still have it if it had the 5.4. The price was great when I bought it though so I overlooked the fact that it had the smaller engine. I still really liked the truck overall though.

Looking at the pictures of it almost makes me miss it lol.

I think 285's would look sick on there.

I also think the difference between 4x4 and 2wd is less than 2". i only think its about an inch

Just found some Terra Grapplers for $149 a piece with free installation. Only bad thing is they are 265's.

Don't really think I want an MT. If I do I would probably go with the Cooper Discoverer STT's.

I'm going with the Cooper ATPs. These are by far the best deal around imo, and still American made. Only available from discount tire. Not sure what size you want but my 265/75R16s are only $123.
