    Had to wait almost two weeks while they found one but I got EXACTLY what I wanted. Had the dunlops swapped for the same size ko's on the way home from the dealer and got the windows tinted today. Holy crap I'm happy with this thing.

    Since I double as a PGR support vehicle now I need to engineer some flag mounts ... big flag mounts

    Ha Ha. Sounds as though you need to start a build thread to document your progress.

    I have no rep to give. Nothing of nothing is still nothing but it's yours.

    Nice truck.

    So those are BFG's right?...245? or bigger?
    i'm looking to keep my stock wheels and go up to 265's.

    Could you please give me more info on your tires?

    Thanks,
    PC

    They are stock size 245x75x16. While it was on order I was dead set on 265 but decided at the last minute to stay with the same size. Glad I did. It's my daily driver. This is my fourth truck with the BFGs. They are perfect for what I do. Mainly street, highway, occasional snow up north and washboard dirt roads but I like to get stupid once in a while.

    Haven't added much besides flags. Been hauling water around as chase vehicle for the Patriot Guard in the 100+ heat.

    We are going to have a rolling thunder up to Prescott for the memorial for the firefighters next Tuesday, if you are there look for me and I'll give you some gatorade or water.

    Beautiful man, I tried this week to get a RC with buckets but the dealer wanted to make his full month salary off me and I aint havin it. It's funny just a couple years ago they wouln't let me leave the store I mean i could pick my own deal, Now they wont give you the time of day unless you pay sticker price. ENJOY IT I love my taco 4x4 just hate that bench seat.
