What was the username of your account that got banned?

Wasn't it something with level 2 in the name? It's really bugging me

I think this is the only one I haven't been banned on? I have another account but can't remember the log in details. But I am pretty sure it's not banned.

The are only a few accounts currently banned and they are all spammers. All previous bans were lifted a couple of months ago.

Got it back. Looks pretty good! Was dark when I picked it up so pics will come later today.

Didn't drive much. Just about 10 miles while I was checking the new tune to make sure the tire size correction was set right. Tires are damn nice. It was snowing pretty hard so the highways were slick. That siping I had done on the tires worked wonders. For an MT I had amazing grip on icy highways with a dusting of snow on top.

Pretty much lol. These tires do exactly what I hoped they would do in snow. The falkens were great on icy roads/snow packed roads, but get them in some deeper powder they start showing signs of weakness. They were still pretty good though. Better than any other all terrain I've had.

But the MT shines in deeper stuff. So easy to control lots more traction and forward momentum.

Haha I was sitting outside lookin at the first pic trying to get the angle right. Freezing my fingers off cause it was -18F today. But I think I did pretty good.

Amazing how different the snow is to. The first pic is February lmao. We had no snow that year.



Anyways, more thoughts on the tires. Love them. The siping really helps a lot on slick city streets. They're noisier on pavement, but that was expected and not an issue for me at all. My trucks noisy anyways with its exhaust lol.

Smooth on the road, tracks good on the highway. Was worried that the added width would make it worse with moving around in the tracks on the highway, but it doesn't.

Played in some snow today as well, around 6". Nothing major but they did awesome. I can tell it was a good choice going with an MT rather than an AT for the type if winter driving I want to do.

MPG is down, obviously. I'm seeing about a 3 mpg drop, however I have to factor in the cold weather into that. So probably about a 1-2 mpg drop from tires alone.

Was windy today on the way home. Head on wind the lower rpm meant if I came out from behind a bluff that blocked the wind it would drop a gear to maintain speed. Kinda annoying. Also is a tad more sluggish when passing, which again was expected.

Will give it a few weeks and see how it does, may consider a regear to 4.56's.

Sick picture!

Hey, how usable are those back up lights mounted to the bedrail? I can understand the "get off my butt" aspect of it though. lol. Have you thought about something below the bumper as well?

as backup lights they are useless. i have LED reverse bulbs that light it up quite niceley. those lights were put there to use for loading and unloading things in the dark. especially in winter when it gets dark at 5:30. i haul a lot of firewood since we burn wood for heat. they come in quite handy. and they are indeed good for "hey, back the **** off" lol

used them just the other day to light up the yard while cleaning up a bit. paid $20 for em, not the brightest lights but for $20 they work.

i have visionx 4500's going on hood mounts soon. just waiting on a harness.

Didnt have quite enough to wrap it around like i had wanted, but this will work fine.
