    not really sure what you were expecting...

    if you can organize your thoughts a little better and formulate a clear question, i'm sure you'd have a response closer to what you're hoping for.

    so the best i can do to help you out is to give you a general game plan of looking at an OEM setup and make sure you have things in correctly. then if you're still having troubles, move down the line and start to eliminate potential issues...

    best way to learn your system is to pick it apart and troubleshoot it

    Hole-in-the-Rock Trail so far is the only trip on them...managed to squeeze that in before the bachelor weekend and wedding...hoping to hit a trail or two before AK then they will get some more love

    only con i've seen so far is the handling on pavement...you can definitely notice a difference. tires seem a bit narrower than recent tires i've had and the tread pattern is not made for onroad performance so it takes a little to get used to it. a little squirrelly at first

    they were amazing off road and i feel very confident on the sidewall performance. it would have been awesome to be around this weekend for the snow, but i'll have to wait on snow performance analysis until later.

    the larger voids do grab larger rocks than i've been used to, so you do notice some louder thuds as rocks kick up and hit the underside

    overall, i'm looking forward to more time with them...they will be fun to have

    long time coming.

    the change to the InSain Fab bed rack made this project a simpler reality.

    similar concept as the softtopper where the sides and back can roll up. an added feature that was a great surprise was the long back that goes down to the bed floor. with the tire gate, more dust comes in when on the trail and this will help to keep things cleaner.
