    Try cross rotating your tires more often as well, as per the owners manual, might help.

    Installed 37 RG's and running it at 36 psi. I did buy the D2 load range ones since I know the E rated ones are going to ride a little bit harsher.

    So far so good on my end.

    I did install it myself. It was pretty straight forward. I found a great how-to on this site. I’ll see if I can find it.

    Feeling Tired...:)
    I literally read your post in the waiting room at Discount Tire while my Tacoma has its 5K R&B! (and roofing nail removal). Strange enough a White Gen 2 blew by me on the Interstate enroute! (I was going 85!)
    I took your post and showed it to the guys there who despite wearing Covid masks love to tire chat.

    Between my Tacos GY All Terrain Kevlar, my "wifes" Raptors K02s and my Stepsons Rebel with Duratracs I have a rather jaded opinion on them.

    That said, the DT guys offered me a lifetime warranty for the remainder of my K02s for $172 unlimited R&B and road hazard. When they're toast we can chat replacement options based on what I saw here.
    Thanks!
    Speaking of lights, was gifted a set of these gotta mount em soon..

    Beautiful black raptor. When having lights behind grill that way do you get any weird shadows or loss of cooling efficiency to your engine?

    No strange shadows. I used to have a rigid 20” dual row bar on my old that seemed way brighter. Don’t get me wrong, this is very bright and a slick installation. The only thing I don’t like is that it is so tight behind the grill that it is difficult/impossible to adjust. Mine is a little high.

    I’ve put some miles on the ridge grapplers. I like them, they look great and with 39lbs front and 37 rear the ride is great. However, I’ve never had tires that vary so much between hot and cold pressure. After a couple minutes on the highway my fronts are at 45lbs and rears 43. Wondering if I should drop cold pressure a couple more lbs

    I notice the large variations in hot/cold on MT tires. I recently had some Yokohama G003 that would do the same thing. It’s normal because the aggressive tread patterns generate more heat. On the flip side my wife has Michelin Defenders on her F150 and the pressure only varies 1-2 psi even after a long highway drive.
