Hypno's 5Lug

Here is my 2007 base in stock form when I got her home. Looking pitiful with the stock tires.




Here it is after throwing on some yoko geolandar at's. Size P235/70R15






After riding on the Yokohama's for about 100 miles I had decided that I did not care for the amount of roll the sidewall had on these, although it was to be expected with it being a P rated tire. So......I took advantage of Yokohama's 30 Day Test Drive Warranty, and went back to the dealer and got these slapped on.

General Grabber AT2 (LT235/75R15)













Other Mods so far include a Extang Trifold Cover and a locking tailgate.




Mods to come soon....................
  • Bilstien HD front and Rear
  • ARB rear locker
  • LCE Header
  • AFE Pro Dry Filter
That is about all I have planned for the foreseeable future, but who knows, I am sure I will continue to be inspired to do more stuff from the great members on this site.

Hope you guys enjoy and stick around for the rest to come. Take care everyone

Started up a little fund today to start saving for the TC UCA and Icon Coilover kit.....though this mod will still come after the rest of the mods listed.

Thanks dude, it should be a fun process for sure, though it definitely won't come quick enough, lol Thanks for checking it out.

Great to see some 5luggers coming by to check it out. You are right though, got to love the mpg's on these 5lugs, even with the bigger tires it is still doing well. And yeah, maintenance is much easier than on my old 2008 rabbit S. Thanks for stopping in



So i got some initial impressions on the General Grabber AT2's. So far they seem great, with dry traction seeming the same or a bit better than the Geolandar AtS. I will be getting a chance to see how it does off the beaten path a little later today, so will be sure to report back on that.

I got my truck in 2009. and its been a pretty slow process for me. but when I finish my training for the army, everything will get going alittle faster. patience is definately key when your on a real tight budget.

Thumbs up what size tires

what size tires do you have on the stock rims. i am thinking 29" Firestone destination LE on some 18" rims for the summer and 225/75/15's (also 29") snow tires on the stocks for the winter

The tires that were on this were 235/75, that seemed to work quite well with the stock rims.
