Picked up the new Rubber

Finally found another steal of a deal on tires around town and went for it. They are 37x13.5x17 they are the XTC 6-ply model. They are damn nice and expensive compaired to the regular x terrains. i picked them up real close to home for 125$. i got my turd 35's for 500, so i think i made out real good. they are worn down to about 1/2" tread but they have more tread than the ones on my truck now. just need to get my rims soon and i'll get them mounted. they have alot better sidewall tread than my 35's i posted a comparison picture

on to them pics!

Those are pretty beefy. Haha... and the price is definitely right. Damn Andy... your truck is gonna be ****... so I'm guessing you decided against the Sami idea?

It gets good mpg on the highway and not bad on the street if im not driving fast off the line all the time lol. I cant figure it out because my Odo doesnt work, but i'd like to say about 15-21. but its downfall is the 4speed auto(70+ its at 2.5k+), my 3.0 had the 5speed auto and was at like 1.5k at 70ish, but it hardly had power to ever stay in OD with the 35s.

Yeah there is more lift needed. I'm doing a leaf sprung SAS. but if you had a BL and RCD you could pull them off.

So yeah, obviously I decided against the sami. My truck needs front end work so i decided why not replace it with SAS parts instead of lame stock parts
