New Brakes

Well I finally got around to installing my Brakes from Alon over at ModBargains.com I went with the Power Slot Rotors, Centric Posi Quiet Brake Pads, and Centic Drums/Shoes. But im still waiting on my rear shoes that they forget to ship :( It already stops way better, but its the rear that really needs to be done. So I had time before work so I washed and waxed it:

YA they came off pretty easy, but the first side took forever to do, but the second side took no time at all. I guess it always easier once you do it one time

How do you like those Grabber AT2's? I just did the t-bar crank on mine, and I'm getting ready to put new tires on. I'm going up to 265's and those Grabbers look good for the money.
Thanks

I have powerslots on my truck and they do make a world of difference. As for the General AT2's, they are the best AT tire I have ever had on any truck.
