Hope to order my hankooks in two weeks.
Is 4' still considered 48" in Canada? If so, I call bullshit.

Yeahhhh keep telling yourself that... or keep pretending that's what she says...



Must've been the most powdery lightweight stuff ever to exist where snow falls.



Anyway, back to build thread, what's the hold up on rocker bedliner?

lmao. it is soft powder. mostly. id go out right after a storm and do my part to help clear the roads so smaller vehicles can get down them. its what we gotta do living in the middle of nowhere, when we only got one snow plow lol.
my grille has quite a few cracks in it that can attest to the height of snow drifts lol.


as for bedlining everything, next year. my lower rocker things i did myself i think i posted pics already.

my frame is almost completely coated in a rubberized asphalt coating. ran out so i need to pick more up. oh, got my new windshield in.

hail damage a few weeks ago destroyed it.
got it replaced finally
i can see again!




still have to raise my rear bumper for the lift. got new bolts so i can grind the old ones off.

other than that i think thats all i got planned for this year. aside from installing those lights and my 33's im ordering.

For me it is a toss up on the Falken’s and the BFG’s for SoCal.
I do not need SNOW TIRES anymore, thank you God.

Thanks for the info.

Falkens all the way. I've ran both and the only thing BFG's are better at is chunking LOL.

Not saying they're a bad tire. Cause they're still good. Just not as good.

Haha it really depends on how wet the snow is. With the cascade concrete that we get 3' is still damn good lol I could see 4 feet being done if the snow was super dry though.. And I mean like champagne powder light.. lol

yeah the storms we get when its -40 make for super light snow. but if you wait a few days they turn to stone. so we gotta go out and clear the roads for cars. otherwise no one is going anywhere lol.

Mud flaps don't look too bad depending on which ones... Still kinda sucks though.. The cops around here wont even hassle you if you aren't running a rear bumper lol

My local cops don't care. But I work in the city and in their they have this thing called VIU. Vehicle inspection unit. Basically they randomly stop vehicles and give them an inspection. They even failed a few brand new off the lot 109% stock vehicles this past year lol.

So I don't wanna take to many chances lol.

My exhaust would fail but I go easy on the throttle do they don't know. I don't wanna give em any visual reasons to pull me haha I'll toss up some pics when I get em on. They should look ok. I hope. Will be good to save my rear bumper from more rust to. 6.2's FX4 Level II Thread.-image-3979686913.jpg Just generic trim to fit flaps. Got the ones that were on sale lol

yeah for sure.

i just hope they dont totally kill my mileage. they shouldnt. weight is around the same as the falkens (falkens are heavy) little wider but the taller profile will drop highway rpms so that should save me some mpg's

when i went from 31's to 32's my peak highway mpg went up one due to the rpm drop. i average the same.

I didn't see any difference in mileage when I went from the stock 28's to 31's but I have 3.73s. And since you have 4.10s those tires shouldn't knock down the mileage. I need to get around to replacing my fan clutch haha once I get home from school for thanksgiving break that's first on the list. Before I left for school I was getting better mpg around town than on the freeway lol
