That looks better than what I saw on my way home. He was riding on all terrains or street tires. Just didn't look right. I'm on 35s and thinking of down sizing since its my daily driver and I'm still cruisin with 373 gears.

oh yea the truck is zippy again. The crappy thing is at 65 @ 2500 , but the mt is geared differently than the auto. I think the auto will be at like 65@ 2100 or 2200 rpms.

No more almost stalling out when driving.
