Re: 2nd Chance PW

Haven't posted up much but have been lurking here and there. Couple of small updates: grill and front bumper painted to match the rear, new bug deflector, new headlights (stock replacements). https://preview.ibb.co/n2ztOd/IMG_20180629_113508371_HDR.jpg Retired the truck as a daily driver and picked ...

Re: Oil Loss/Consumption???

I'm going to add my truck to this list. 2010 w/ 150xxx miles. Use about a quart every 1,000-1,500 miles. Truck runs great, good oil pressure, no smoke noticed. I have always used syn 5w20 but switched from cheaper oriely brand to mobil1 and it seems to have increased oil consumption. Considering it ...

Re: Overland Bed Rack

Sweet, I can finally post in this thread after almost two years of dreaming this up :P I wanted full use of the bed, be able to cover all my gear with the tonneau cover, and keep the tent below the roof line. Cover can still be rolled up, pretty useful. https://preview.ibb.co/eCQoCv/IMG_20170703_113...

Re: Waseca or Rochester, MN

I dated a girl who grew up in Owatona. She liked it, its a small town but nice. I drive through it on my way to Albert Lea every month (my Guard unit is there). I currently work up north in the "Iron Range." Gilbert, one of the towns in the range, has an OHV park and is probably the best off roading...

Re: 37 in spare

I've always just kept it strapped in the bed... Only time it comes out is if im loading the bed with dirt/mulch/rock which isnt that often. Otherwise I just work around it. Not the most convenient but I hate not being prepared.

Re: Duratracs have to go, need options.

BFG KO2's are just an excellent all-around tire that also rides quiet on the highway. Some older BFG's had issues with balancing but the new ones balance out great. Can't speak too much on snow performance because I have nothing to compare to, I used Furiosa to pull stranded cars up a steep hill on...

Re: Would going to 305s be too small of a difference?

Going to get some new shoes. Not too happy with anything about the Duratracs. Seems the Toyo AT2 get some good reviews so Im going to give them a shot. Was originally thinking 35s, but the PW is my DD. I dont want to sacrifice TOO much in the way of performance, towing, and of course Mpg's. The 305...

Re: Would going to 305s be too small of a difference?

I have 285/75/17 Toyo A/T II's on my truck and I feel like it was a good size for what I do. Naturally the 12 year old inside of me wanted 37's, but for now I'm happy with my choice. I'm still a 12 y/o :thppt: I dont think you can go wrong either way. Your truck will do fine with 35s, I noticed a m...

Since it sounds like you're open to it I think the best bet is to go with a factory take off. You will see them periodically for sale on here or on the CL find thread. This way you know everything will match and and function as intended. Not saying you couldn't make something else work it just depen...
