    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.

    Got the stock halogens swapped out for factory projectors, rebuilt struts in, mid perch, aligned her to pirateair's specs

    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!
