    More pictars for fun. the first two are scanguage shots i took today on the drive home. The first one is a 35 mile average mpg at 60 mph on a pretty flat road. I calibrated the scanguage by going back to the exact same fuel handle twice, so this is accurate!!!

    The Second one is a 130 mile average with 70 percent of it being 70 mph and 30 percent being 60 mph. Happy with my averages to say the least!! This is running 91 ethanol free gas.

    Thanks Ross! The Big Wonderful Wyo has been my home for the past year and I've loved every day since! I lived in Wisconsin before moving out here about a year ago. It's a great place, I just hope lots of people don't start moving here! Drop the gate and keep wyo the way it is :D

    I just need some big tyres like you're rolling now!!!!!

    Thanks to Aunts n Uncles I was born a Raider/Packer fan. Every year I have 1 team to get excited for and the other team to constantly say WTF!!!!!! You know which is which...LOL


    Anywhere up the coast is always awesome. Our dunes are pretty badass. Sandfest is killer fun every year.
    The high desert (Bend, Sisters, Redmond,etc.) is always amazing.

    Project mudflap today... keeping rocks off my bumper ;) Turned out well and it's sturdy. that flat bracket bolted to the bumper endcap is 3/16 steel. We'll see how it holds up and if the flap swings into the exhaust on the hiway... napa special :D

    Those look good. They remind me of the earlier model Toyota Truck mud flaps. I actually prefer that older, more flexible style, to these new rigid versions. To easy to "break" these off.

    Definitely. After the test run i've noticed they don't hang perfectly so I've got some tweaking to do but for now they're doing what they are supposed to and people behind me will likely appreciated it. What are you doing with your rear flaps? do you need them to be legal where you are? I noticed your stockers were getting mighty close to the ground ;)

    The truck looks great.
    I have a set of countersteer wheels on the way and have been having a hard time trying to decide between 265 duratracs or 285 BFG ATs. After looking at your truck, I will stick with the 265 duratracs until I get bored, or the truck is not so new.
    So thanks for helping me make up my mind :D

    Found something for you. :)

    http://www.wilwood.com/Hats/HatList.aspx?appl=Truck Hats

    Then you just need to match up the rotor bolt circle, and dimensional specs, then Bam. Wilwood rotors.

    Rotor circle of 12 x 9.19 can mate to a 14" rotor. There is a 12 x 10.75 (?) that also has many sizes that could work with factory.

    I didn't look at calipers yet.

    Thanks bullaculla! You're going to love the Konigs! I plan on going with a better leaf pack in the rear soon (probably all-pro standard) so i'm wishing I went with the 285 instead of the 265 to fit better with the close to 3 inches of lift i'll be at. But... the 265 duratrac has been awesome for the 12k miles i have on them. my fronts run at 38 and my rears at 34psi and they chalk test pretty good. I have the E rated tire so dont copy those psi numbers if you got the c rated. You will really like the duratracs there's no doubt about it :)

    Reasons to go from 265 to 285... Dont mind a slight drop in mpg, need a bit more clearance that an almost 33 inch tire will give you, and need a taller tire to fill out the wheel well of a lifted truck. That's how I see it.

    Tor, I had a sneaky suspicion you were gonna drop in here and have it all laid out for me after I dove bomb your thread about breaks lol.

    As it currently sits with the Konigs I only have a few cm clearance between stock rotor and the wheel, just enough for the balance weights to fit. So it's not in the picture for bigger rotors with the stock caliper, but.... a better slightly bigger rotor and lower profile caliper may allow me to jump up :D I've got a few other pieces of the truck to do first since I don't need that much anti-horsepower... yet :)

    Thanks for the link!

    Oh yeah. No prob. My response was in part mainly about the rotors specifically about my trucks fitment. However, they have a variety of sizes from something like 10" all the way up to 14". So a factory fit might be possible.

    Plus I posted this here so that I could find it later. Lol
