    With modern, smaller, car tires, cross rotating is probably OK but for our larger, heavier tires, its hard to recommend.

    IMO, if you keep you vehicle aligned and run correct air pressure on the pavement, you will get full mileage out of a set of MTs or ATs without crossing them.

    This is one of the best looking 98-00 models in my opinion. What size tires?

    Had another productive night last night. Buttoned up the new ARB and Smittybilt 9500. The winch just BARELY fit. I actually had to grind a little notch out of the front radiator support. But I got it on and working. Tonight I'll be putting on the Relentless bed bar/hi lift mount and the Redline hood struts.

    Redid my intake. I did the in-cab snorkel. HUGE drop in intake temps, this is a real CAI. My intake temps dropped from 114* to 78*. As suspected, there is a dramatic increase in noise in the cab when at WOT. I'm looking for some pre-filter foam to use inside the tube to baffle the noise a bit. At idle and cruising the noise isn't bad at all, just when I'm on the throttle.

    More pics in my build

    Yeah, when Jon's truck was an actual truck and drivable, I was in it a few times as a passenger. He had the in-cab snorkel and it was a considerable drone.

    The Safari Snorkel with similar ambient temps in the mid 90s would hit in the 95-105* range intake temps. The 114* was not the stock location but inside the engine bay, similar to any after market "CAI". The stock location would likely be more similar to what I was seeing with the Safari Snorkel.

    As for winter intake temps, it should be about the same since the temps inside the cab are going to be about the same regardless of season.
