Supercharger, that's one heck of a mod to start with. Can't wait to see how it looks in the future. That's a sharp looking truck as it stands.

Trying to finish up my LED bed light project that I started last week and then ran into a short somewhere.

Just saw the lift/tire update over yonder. I'm seriously considering the KM2 in 265/75-16. I know you just mounted them, but how do they sound at highway speeds? I can live with a small drop in fuel economy and acceleration, but I don't a really loud tire on the highway.

They're pretty loud. Could hear them over the radio at volume level 40. Acceleration is still reasonable, just likes to drop out of OD quicker when set on cruise control. Happy with them so far but only put 50 miles on them today.

Thanks. I lack FI so the effects on power would be even more pronounced with my truck. That pretty much rules them out for me since I have to take fairly long drives to get anywhere interesting. If I lived closer to an offroad area, I wouldn't hesitate to go with the KM2. Seems like a very good choice, and I hope they work well for you.

Thanks for having the integrity to make the correction, but from what I've seen, you definitely served. I've met so many "former Rangers" that it's refreshing to see someone simply state what they did, and realize there's no need for embelishment. Remember that as you go through life, and you won't end up being one of the douches that don't realize they've made themselves a joke.

Thanks for the kind words. But there's no way I can take credit for what our troops do. All I had to deal with was some bad food, a little dust, and a couple cold showers.

A dead American is a dead American. You were just as good a target as anyone else. You can be proud of your service without taking anything away from the troops. Just don't be a DB and start your stories with, "So there I was, knee deep in the entrails of my enemies, trying to get a palletized shipment of MREs to Firebase Assmaster with the Taliban was up my butt fo sho ..."
