I like the skyjacker Fr6s but always wanted to try deavers. From pictures they look like they're softer and flex a little better.

It makes a big difference and it's nice to know everything is safely hooked up.

How are the coilovers working out for you?

You think this will work for a fuse box ? what did you go with ?
The Blue Sea Stuff is nice but it would be better with a relay to control the power to it.
Painless Wiring has a good setup called Circuit Boss, I think two different ones.
Either way the extra fuse panel is a great idea.

I have two of the Circuit Bosses going in the EDGE.

Post up what and how you ended up setting it up.

How do you like the MTRs? Street, rain, snow, etc
and do you recommend them for daily driving

Love them! coming from BFG Ats they are abit louder on the road but are smooth and controlled in the rain and on the street.

for DD they are a big aggressive but will work. Its a lot of tire to wear down just for street use and not really necessary if that's what your going to use them for.

but as a mixed trail and off road tire they are hard to beat. I have several buddies that run BFG MTs (I would be running them too if they were not back ordered in the size I wanted) and they preform great but the MTRs are a little better on ice due to the tight tread pattern on one side.

cant go wrong either way IMO but I would buy my MTRs again.

Hmm...I still can't decide if I should go with a 3rd set of KM2s or try out the MTRs lol. I know its a lot of tire to wear down but I like having the capability when I need it

I've heard fairly good things about them. I just wouldn't run them because they're not sipped enough for daily driving, specially in the rain. My KM2's aren't sipped anymore because they're pretty cooked, at least the rears lol

I ran toyo MTs for a 6 months and they were super loud compared to the MTRs and bfgs. also were not as confidence inspiring as my BFG ATs or my MTRs I know plenty of "bro" trucks that run them with decent results but they never really preformed like I hoped so I sold them.

FWIW, I've narrowed my next tires to the Fierce Attitude MT or another set of Falkens. Fierce seems to get pretty good reviews for a DD MT. See them on a lot of trucks around here.

Spent the last 24 hours out in the snow,

spent some time out around snoqualmie pass and found lots of ice, slid back down the trail about 20 feet at one point and it was time for chains to jet back down the skating rink! there were 2 rigs off the road abandoned and an F350 that was stuck waiting till morning.

looking down some of the black ice road. steep hills plus ice = high heart rate lol.



then this morning went out to greenwater to go find some snow, lots more ice but much better snow to go

also not bad views













my brother in law tagged along for part of the day, heres his Level 2
