    Yesterday I had Kumho Road Venture MT's 305/70/16 (33") installed. They replaced the same Kumho's that were on there that were 265/75/16's (32").

    I'm glad to say I could not notice any differance in how the truck accelerates compaired to the 32's that were on there.

    3" lift, no body mount or plastic rub (after plastic trimimg) with no regear needed.

    I will put up pics next Sunday. I'm holding off on taking pics till I install my ICON's and maybe a tonneau cover.

    I did a 200 mile round trip today and didn't see a change in mileage, though I'm sure it's probablly a hair less. You have to remember I already had 32's on it. It seemed to have the same acceleration as with the 32's.

    And who the hell called my truck a Prerunner? LOL
