    Hey ive got a stupid question, how risky is it to daily drive my truck as I just installed fox extended travel coilovers? Im getting uniball uca's next week but if I drive my truck as it sits, how dangerous would that be for risking the snapping of my ball joints.

    danke

    Stopped by the dealership and bought a new gas cap (hope that solves me P0446 code), bought a manual antenna base to replace my dead electric one, ordered an AntennaX antenna and stitched up my visor.

    Good to hear the pros. I think they look ok. Im not too concerned with how they look. All i know is that bfg makes a great tire and im sure the size doesnt matter. 60 bucks difference in price per tire sure does though!

    I just got a set of 35/12.50/15 General Grabber Red labels for $183 per tire. I'll never go to 16" wheels. The price difference for tires is ridiculous.
