As far as how they compare to the MTR's, I'd say it's too soon to tell exactly. Noise level is roughly the same going down the road and the MTRs don't see to plow as much into corners. I haven't had any adverse weather here, or ventured out in the mud with them, yet. When that time comes, I'll let you know how they compare side-by-side.


Well, whats the word?!


Bird's the word! :lol:

So far, I think they behave very similarly to the KM2s in the winter. They still slide a little bit in the corners, but I don't think as badly. They claw through the snow just as well as the KM2s and handle ice in the same manner. I've got them all aired to 35 psi, as I found that's where the full contact patch comes into play.

I haven't had them "off road" yet, since everything here is still covered in snow/ice. When the construction season comes back around (hopefully soon, because I'm getting REALLY sick of all this white crap!), I'll be able to give a better report. :cheers:

Modication/Alteration #8: Thuren High Clearance Control Arms: October 21, 2016

Added the Thuren Control Arms on Friday. Install took about 2.5 hours (I'm very meticulous and I had beer. :lol: ) The ride of the truck is SO much better! It's so smooth going over dips and bumps now.

I only do what the majority of the 4 voices in my head tell me to. In most cases, I ignore two of them because one doesn't speak English, and I suspect the other is talking to someone else.

EMF ball joints ordered and in my possession. Waiting on Spicer u-joints, as they're on backorder. Should help with any problems on stepping up to 37s.... :)

Follow the EMF instructions! I over tightened my lowers instead of following his spec of loosening them and I paid for it with crappy steering. Loving the EMFs now that it them set right.
