    Nothing worse than a man baby bitching about his new $40K truck not being good enough for him and all the things he had to do to “fix” it. Dude shoulda just bought a Gladiator.

    Read the article. Boring, nothing new or insightful. You bought a truck, installed an ironman suspension kit, alluded to tunes but were too much of a wimp to admit you actually did it, got tires, and bolted on a rack and soft topper.

    Cool story bro.

    It was like a very longwinded build thread lacking any real details other than specs/marketing press copy and pasted from the manufacturer sites. Not much for journalism there... how do I get on the gearjunkie payroll? Looks like an easy gig.

    You hit bump stops with only 400lbs in the back on a speed bump? I doubt that

    I stopped reading here

    The increased tire size has netted a 2-3 mpg reduction in gas mileage. But there is a noticeable improvement in handling and performance across the board. These tires even feel better on pavement. They are slightly louder at highway speeds, but I can still have a normal conversation in the cab

    Just like most build threads on here! Thanks for reading.

    First step to getting on the payroll is spelling our name right.

    Oh man we're going for spelling/grammar attacks. Well done, you managed to quote me in the seconds between me posting and correcting my spelling error on something that's not a real word.

    thought it may be his site or he's affiliated with them, he stated: "our site" in his last post.

    Not harsh, just see thru the BS. You wrote an article and spent more time on product placement. then the problems you claim to have.

    Did you not test drive this so called dream truck? Waited your whole life for your dream truck, but never road in one? But had a 4runner and an Fj, and your dream was still shattered?
