    I just got my new tires installed the other day! Michelin MS2 LT265/75 16s.
    So far I really like them and they ride excellent.

    I have the Bilstein 5100s all the way around. I set the front shock on zero and also used the Toytec coils. I have the TSB leaf spring pack in the rear.

    Nice!

    Hey, sorry to hijack this thread, but can you show more pics of your ARE topper? I am about to order a Z series for my DCSB and would sure like to see more of yours. :)

    Here are some pictures of my ARE camper. It is the middle of the line I can't remember what the model number is though. The extras I got with it are sliding front window, flip down front window (this will let you flip down the entire front window so you can clean your back window on your truck), and carpet sides and roof. I have been very glad I went with the carpet option, it was a little more money, but have been camping in it a few times and it has really paid off. No condensation on the roof or walls after sleeping in it all night! So far I have no complaints about the camper.
