    Tires and wheels are definitely on the list, I am enjoying the fuel mileage with these 265/65/17's right now though. They have plenty of life left in them. I am a commuting college student so I'm waiting until i need new tires to upgrade.

    I'd keep your wheels and tires for on road driving get some different wheels and tires for going off the beaten path. Good looking truck man!

    I used to run the 5100's at 1.75, i recently put on 885's with the 5100's set at 0.

    I don't notice any axle wrap (its only a 1" block), when i added the block and the 885's the ride didn't really change at all except for the feeling of topping out the shocks i get when off roading.

    i got 24.7 mpg's on my last tank ( i was trying to drive as fuel efficient as i could ) and made it to 450 miles on the tank, and filled up 18.2 gallons. Call me crazy if you want but i did, i have a pic in my gallery of the scangauge reading (it over estimated fuel use, so i got better mpg's than it said).

    I drove from MA to NH on this tank and then a trip from where i was in NH to ME and back so it definitely was not all flat roads either.

    The scan gauge is reading 20 mpg's so far on this tank, but i have been beating on it a little bit.

    Added JBA long tubes. My 0-60 time with 7/8 tank of gas, and 1 passenger went from 7.2ish to 6.8ish. And it is soooo loud when combined with the aero 2525. No update for fuel mileage, as I'm having some o2 issues since the headers, and i do have an o2 sim.

    And I'm still rocking the same tires. They have done everything i asked of them, except they succckkk in the snow.

    285/75/16 Duratrac's and Black konig countersteer offroad's are on my wish list. Decision not set in stone.

    Got in a minor accident due to snow. one of the lower mounts for the grill and the center guide piece broke. Insurance replaced it and i took back the broken one and super glued the mount back together and its solid. Cut it up to make a shallow satoshi, with some cheap mesh from home depot. So all in all this grill cost me 8$.

    I don't like how visible everything is behind the grill. I'm not sure if it would help a lot to paint whats behind it all black or look for a mesh that isn't as see through.

    I had to cut this tiny piece off of my fender flare in the rear on the fender well. Completely unnoticable unless you are really looking for it and know exactly the geo of the stock flares.
    And i hit the cab mount because i have my sway bar out and i have lr uca set at +1 . Chopping them up with a friend in the near future

    No regrets. Im on my first tank with these tires and my averag mpgs only dropped to about 18 according to the scangauge. But i have been playing a little, so im sure i could do better.
