    Thankyou, I had been waiting since November to get these. It's funny, the 1st thing my son said was "daddy, you have to go offroading now."

    The ride is definately different. I gotta play with the air pressure a bit. Today is the first day I really drove it anywhere, I posted the pics right after I installed them last night.
    No, they won't, the brakes are too big on the 2nd gens to fit 15" wheels. Perhaps the same wheel in a 16" or 17" would work.

    If I wanted black caps, I woulda bought them. I really like the contrast of the chrome against the black. Gotta have a little bling!

    Unfortunately, due to some minor rubbing, I'm gonna have to lose the front mud flaps. It's a shame too, they did they're job well. Tonight, I'll get rid of them and do the pinch weld mod.

    Hard to say. It was rough at first, but the tire shop filled the tires to 50 psi. I dropped them down to 40 and it was an improvement. Steering has changed a little bit, I gotta put a little more effort into it. Don't know if there is anything I can do about that. My brake pedal seems firmer now, but it may just be coincidence. I think right now I'm hypersensitive towards the wheels and tires. I need to get used to them. Havn't had a chance to get them offroad yet.
