    Take your 6" lift of and go back to stock tires :D. That is the nature of the beast my friend, your deviating from factory specs and rotating wider, heavier tires. That is going to tax brakes and fuel economy. Flip side you can dig some grass and shrubs pretty fast! What are you getting for economy?

    It's okay to take a ribbing. You got what you paid for, now you have to accept the pros/cons of the lift. :cool:
