Looks like a good clean truck, I don't like those tires though. My boss has them on his truck and I drive it now and then and the tires have a rough ride to them and I don't like them, plus they have lousy traction, imo.

as far as bad things I heard about them, were all from people who had them on larger trucks.

Thanks for the input, not sure if i want to loose the mudflaps or not though, afterall it makes a smaller area to clean, but it gives better clearence w/o. The white lettering scrubbed right off when removing the blue protectant and ended up getting $10 off a tire, ended up paying $94.50 each after a 10% promotion.

Next project is shocks, leaning on KYB Gas-A-Just.

I had those tires and they would great, even when they barely any tread left they still perform better than some I had.

They had great traction in the snow and were relativly quiet, but you must rotate them often (every 5k) or you will regret it....

Aren't all tires supposed to be rotated every 5k or every oil change?

When it comes to my next set of tire I will be getting bigger Open Country A/T's. These have never failed me.

the tire place i got them give free rotation at the first 4 thousand and after that every 6 which is every other oil change. i know this is in the tire section but i was wondering why im burning oil. when i first got it, it had blown out the rings in a cylinder, and hasnt burned too much oil until recently, could it be a blown head gasket? to solve the problem for now i added LUCAS oil to it, not burning as much.
