    ok so based on the frequency of all these new threads asking the same type of Qs over and over, i'm gonna make a system (inpired by mike's post here) that'll lead them to their answer or a faq before they can create the thread.

    please post a noob question you frequently see and then post the answer to it (or link to a post that gives the answer). i will use what you guys contribute to make the system.

    285/75/16 or 285/70/17 max for a 2nd gen. with a 3''

    If I'm not mistaken, a 35-12.50-17 is the biggest for a 6''. :eek:

    Remember, that one guy put 35's on his first gen. They fit, but you cant drive with them.

    Dnyo vs. Synthetic is a very re-occurring subject.

    But I guess that's all based on opinion, unless somebody else has some say in it. :eek:

    Thanks Bob. :)


    While we're on re-occurring subjects; What level octane and where you fill up is another biggie. Also, air filters has been popular too. Like you said, you can point them to the discussions. :)

    Another thing would be is the TSB's, what they are, and general information and discussion about them would be helpful.
