    Pretty dang good man. Last time I let my gas light come on after having a full tank with these tires on and I got over 300 miles when I got to a gas station. I am really happy with these tires. Had a "humming" sound to them when driving around but it isn't noticeable now. I recommend these tires.

    Thanks and nope! I am not sure if they would have rubbed when my truck was stock. I had my 5100s set to 1.75 before having these tires put on. I do not think they would have rubbed on my stock set up though. Great tires!

    I got the high heat spray paint today. So I will paint and relocate my horns on Sunday when I get back from Apache Lake.

    Not sure If I want to get a light bar yet. May mount two lights behind the grillcraft if/when I get it.

    Thanks man. They are holding up pretty good so far. Like I said before I would rather spend $8 for a can of spray paint and easily redo/touch them up once every six months if need be than spend $20 plus shipping to get the Lamin-X.

    I was waaaaaaaaaaaaay too hungover to work on that when I got home from the Lake. Was planning on doing it at the firehouse today but I forgot the paint at home. Maybe tomorrow...

    I did take my mudflaps off yesterday though. Will post them up for sale on the B/S/T tomorrow.

    Painted the radiator black today and relocated the horns.

    I couldn't figure out where to put the o2 sensor. So I just temporarily secured it back onto itself on the wiring for the horns. I want to see what others have done with it that have moved their horns in the same spot.

    Also debadged the entire truck and disabled the seatbelt chime recently.

    Thanks man. I liked the look of them when I first did it but they have really grown on me since then. Real cheap and easy mod to do. Would look sick on yours!

    Did the sleeve mod to my foglights. Easy mod to do. Hard to see on the MGM but whatever.

    Here is the procedure that you can use to do it.

    1) Turn the Car 'ON', but do not start the engine (Leave your foot off the brake). Cycle your trip reset knob until it reads ODO. Turn the ignition back off. Wait a couple of seconds.
    2) Make sure seat belt is not fastened
    3) Turn the ignition back on, do not start the car (Leave you foot off the break) As soon as you see everything light up, press and hold the trip reset knob and do a long 12 second count.
    4) Keep your finger on the trip reset knob. Fasten your seat belt, as soon as you fasten your seat belt, you should see the ODO display go from XXXX miles to "b-on". At that time take your finger off the trip reset knob and press it again. It should cycle to "b-off". You should be all set and turn the ignition off and unfasten your seat belt.

    It will look a lot better and would actually be noticeable on your truck.

    Thanks dude but I did this mod a couple weeks ago. It was at the way bottom of post #55, but good looking out.
