    Hi all - Name is Lenny. New to TacomaWorld but not new to Tacoma's.

    Sold the '99 Runner & picked myself up a quality '06 DC 4x4 V6 Off Road Taco. Prior to the 4Runner I had two late model SR5's. Recently added a 3" lift (spacer for now) and some new shoes. Went with the Dick Cepek DC1 17x9 & the new 285/70/17 BFG KM2 (which are the chit). The future mods list includes westin bar, grille, sliders and a new gf for the passenger seat.

    Site looks like a good time!

    Thanks.

    The KM2 is truly an awesome tire and traction is no issue. I'm a daily driver that sees use as a weekend warrior, and the KM2 tread pattern is a great compromise. It has the strength of a krawler (sidewall technology), tears into the mud and wears much better than the previous generation mud terrain. Basically its a tire that can do it all and its not as loud as i thought it would be, major plus. Looks bad arse too! Just hope it lasts atleast 35-40k and with regular rotation intervals the guys at discount said they should.
