    Well i've had the truck for a few months and noticed like many other people that this 2.7 clutch is pretty iffy. If i push the clutch in too fast it makes a pretty nasty sounding clunk every now and then. To make a smooth shift i feel like i have to let it out way to slow and i feel like im just burning it away.

    Am I burning the clutch letting it out just slow enough for a smooth shift?

    Ive read about lugging the engine around the forum. If i have the truck in gear not giving it gas, just going an idle speed in a low gear, am i tearing it up there?

    Ive found some newish tires/steelies off a 2011 just wondering what make/brand tires come on the trucks from the factory on the 2011s?

    Perhaps a miniscule amount more but I wouldnt worry about that.
    As for your second question, no.

    Anyone have anything else to add? What about the 2011 tire brand from the factory on base models?

    Usually they are either Dunlops or Bridgstones.

    Now theres the answer I was hoping for... thanks!

    The tires would be the 6 lug/16 in steel wheels.
    Would the dunlops be worth a shit to buy with only 3k on them?
