    Thought I'd take a quick lunch break from work here at home and put on some pants to go paint the welds on the sliders installed last night... picked up jeans... looked out window... RAIN.

    Obviously a good thing, but dang it! Wanted to slap some paint on there BEFORE they got wet.

    Send some my way please. I could smell the moisture in the air this morning, the temp is lower, and the clouds are here, but not dripping yet.

    Go to Daft Badger Brewing in CDA. Get the Josiah stout. They also have another stout that is the Josiah aged in bourbon barrels, and has slightly higher alcohol content, but I like the flavor of the original better.

    Now that we've had some rain to test with, I can safely say the ST Maxx blow the Ko2 "out of the water" with wet weather traction

    Question??? Pulled a screw from my tire about a month ago. Threw a plug in it and have been driving it, fairly hard, with no issues. I know this is a risk. Question is: Can/will a tire shop still be able to properly patch/plug my tire still? Puncture was in the thick tread and closer to the center of tire. 10,000 miles KO2 285/75. Damn KO2zzz

    I’m in the market for tires as well and are we’re considering the ST Maxx since it seems like a great all around tire, but I want something more aggressive looking like the STT Pro or Goodyear MTR.

    did you cross shop any other tire?

    I considered the Falken as well. I'd consider the ST Maxx to be pretty damn aggressive looking

    Anyone get a new 4Runner recently, my fiancé’s been eyeballing them and because used is so close to the cost of new she’s thinking new.

    Curious what people are paying?

    she’s a nurse so needs 4wd just in case.

    I put my wifey into one in 2016. She test drove it and fell in love right then and there. I want to say it was about $45k, I think Limited trim, and 4wd. She has been more confident driving I'm snow and ice ever since. It has also become our dog hauler, with back seats down, dog beds in for a base, then a futon mattress over the top. It does ride very smoothly, but about 45,000 miles in, tires are wearing unevenly, thinning out on the inside corner all around. It is all stock still.

    Thanks for sharing man. My dads wife didn’t like the ride so I was hoping that someone would provide this information. Weird about the tire wear. It sounds like the dealership may be overinflating it but hard to say if you have done chalk tests.

    Stuff and things... maybe a little rust
    You can have my 16" one that has been sitting in my back yard for 2-3 years. It comes with the Rugged Fail on it though
