Interesting. Heard mixed reviews on their wet traction.
Being in Florida, that's something I rather not have to worry about.
Truck got loose/hydroplaned(5/32 tread life) at 80mph a month after I bought it. Rather not go through that ever again.

Those Nittos do better in the rain?

I don't have any personal experience with the ridge grapplers, but they are rated higher for wet traction and so far have gotten favorable reviews.

Built a tire rack for the bed. It's also hinged so I can get to my tool box underneath.

Thanks. I put the red raptor sticker on cause I got tied of seeing my truck in the mirror every time I drove down the road. I honestly think that silver with the black decals is the most common combo out there.

My thoughts exactly. I happened to pass this on the interstate the other day. It wasn't until I was right on it that I was sure it was a Gen 2. The front is definitely the most aggressive looking aspect of the truck.

I do believe thats the same setup I run, If you got it set to:

+3.7* Castor
-0.45* Camber
+0.2* toe in

Drive straight on side roads, needs to hold a bit to left or right on overly crowned roads.

I altered the specs sligtly to my liking. I think I printed off what I ran with. It seems to handle road crown nicely. I'll post up what I rolled with is I have the print out in my tool box at work. Very very close to pirateair's specs tho. Very close!
