    First off road adventure. Went to an event with my friend and the only "road" there was an unmaintained dirt road. Nothing too crazy, but needed 4x4 to get there and out.
    20 min to get the mud on; 30 min of rain on he way home and 1 hour of washing to get it all off.

    I have been thinking about getting some 1" spacers. I actually like the stock rims, and the dealership gives me free tires for the life of the vehicle if I keep them (and yes, BFG A/T T/A's are one of the tire options included). My question is, will 1" spacers really effect my ride? I have heard stories about 2"+, but I don't want anything like that.

    That's a nice picture. What kind of camera are you using?

    Thanks. I try to go out of my way to take good pics; it's nice to have it recognized. It's a Canon 60D with a Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens.

    It sounds great, but any service to the vehicle has to be done by Toyota. And aftermarket parts have to be installed by them aswell. So, in the long run, they're making their money. Lol

    Guess I forgot to add this, but a couple weeks ago I added my Pioneer AVIC head unit. Photoshopped a custom splash screen for start up, and failed at hooking it up to the back up camera.

    I sliced one of my Rugged Trails open today. Used it as an excuse to get 4 new BFG All-Terrain T/A's put on the truck. Now I have three spare Rugged Trails laying around...I'll add pics tomorrow when there's daylight...

    Luckily the dealership was having a special: Buy three, get one free...and free NitroFill...Why Not...

    I stuck with the factory size (LT265/70/R16). They look way more agressive than the rugged trails. Coworker took a double take this morning and asked what I did to it now lol. Pic is kinda dark, but I left for work at 7am.

    Nice. How does it ride and are they noisy? I'm going to get the same tire and size as yours.

    They're a little more noisy on the road than the Rugged Trails, but they are superior in every other way thus far. Better traction when breaking, cornering etc...I have them Nitro Filled To 35psi, so I don't know how that affects the ride quality as opposed to air. I havn't noticed a difference in ride quality from the new rugged trails that were on it earlier yesterday.

    On a side note they add a way more agressive look to the truck. These are the tires that Toyota should have put on this truck in the first place IMHO.
