    Ah, That makes sense now. Those are about the same size and my 265-75-16s. Mine only rub under extreme conditions, and even then it's barely noticeable.
    It's good to fill the wheelwell!

    Since we've been hot and heavy on tools, pro tip about Tekton.

    I had a few questions for them today and they let me know that there will be a 20% cash back promotion on Friday (normally 10%). Meaning, orders placed on their site will receive 20% back on future purchases. Shipping is included to the lower 48.

    ...Just in case anyone needed more help with their spending.

    Oh I already have radios! Not hard-mounted, but still.

    I am curious about this winch. While I do have a tool box coming, I'm generally cautious about buying things with moving parts from HF.

    The Badlands Apex 12k winch actually gets very good reviews on the internet. Catch up reading before black Friday!

    So. Many. Stickers.
    We've got two of them in our group and they get used very regularly and very heavily. Both are 12k and both have held up extremely well even to abuse and neglect.

    I would avoid the badlands 9K since there is no way to mount synthetic line to it and it seems to be the only winch of theirs that does not have a synthetic option.

    All I know is that this will make @Supr4Lo all hot and bothered.

    Did you know he drives a manual?

    That's a good deal! I want to say the TRD knob is over $45 Normally. I liked mine but I upgraded to a weighted knob now

    If you don't know, I'll tell you all about my manual ;)@WiscoPat is jealous of our big knobs

    When I called up a wrecker to scrap an old accord, he picked it up with an old-school sling tow truck. He was using a badlands winch on that sling. Not sure what that means, but I figured if a pro-scrapper relies on it to make a buck, it’s decent enough.

    Some of you know that I work in IT for Sendik's Food Markets, an 18 store chain in SE WI. Before major holidays, the entire home office staff is out at the stores helping out anywhere we're needed. I spent the last few days on "store support" and came home exhausted tonight. I'm happy I don't have to work tomorrow (we're still open 7-2) but I just wanted to say, if you have to go to a store tomorrow for last minute stuff, or maybe a whole meal, please be patient, understanding and kind to the staff. We're doing everything we can to help make one of the biggest meals of the year special for your family.

    I do love my job, in part because I get to meet some really kind and appreciative customers. A thank you really does mean so much. Bonuses today... I was helping out bagging groceries during a rush and a nun blessed me and a cougar told me I had the cutest dimples. :D:thumbsup:

    Have a very happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Might have just ruined my turkey and discovered my smoke alarms aren’t worth the plastic they are made from…but Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Bruh I wish that was the case. Somehow my roasting pan got a hairline fracture that you can’t see but it can surely leak drippings. Started it at 5:30 and went for a nap, woke up and house looks like it’s burning down. Smoke detector only goes off after I woke up, piece of crap. Airing out the house for an hour now and all good, turkey should be banging (using Gordon Ramsey’s seasoned butter method, so much butter).

    Hope everyone is having a less eventful morning than me! Time for a beer!!
