    So funny story. Here I am in Iraq and I get this message from my girlfriend over SKYPE saying how she cant handle me being away so shes done. So I think I need to buy something for the Truck to fill this "VOID" lol.
    So heres the Question.

    ATX OFFROAD CHAMBER 16" rims with Natto terra graplers -$1380
    or
    TIRE GATE PreRunner Series ~ $750

    Any other suggestions in that price range?

    Oh and im not that broken up over this girl it just gives me an excuse to blow some money on the truck :)

    sux about the girl...had myself one of those situations during a deployment awhile back...

    as far as what to buy? even though they are more expensive, i'd say the tires. I see you have a 2007 and I'm assuming you still have stock (maybe?) tires...logically, that'd be the best way to go since the tires probably have quite a few miles on them by now

    HAHA actually the truck only has 15k on it im sure they are the original tires too. Got it certified pre-owned too with a 7 year 100k mile warranty and 2 year service plan too. and I just picked it up maybe 2 months ago.
