So ended up returning the Exo Grappler's. Great tires, performed absolutely amazing, felt like a mud tire in the mud instead of an AT, and rocked it in the snow and rain. Downfall was that they hold rocks, I live in the country, and have a long rocked driveway, and the rocks get between the lugs, well they dont come out on the country roads, they wait till you are on the highway doing 65+ mph, then they decide to clean out, my poor truck was taking a beating daily.
Luckily @Discount Tire
has killer customer service, took the tire back without any hassle. Ended up getting a set of Goodyear Ultra Terrain's mounted up (35x12.50r17). Very quiet tire, seem to do good in the mud (not as good as the Exo, but way better than a TKO2). Supposed to have a nice little storm come in this weekend so will see how they do in the rain and snow...
Oh ya, and this happened... It was on sale, and I was sick of the stock antenna, dont judge me.
As a side note, anyone thinking about gearing, or running bigger tires and haven't thought about gearing, don't hesitate, just DO IT! Aside from EFI Live this is single handedly the most noticeable performance improvement I have done to my truck.
Normal driving, before I did gears I reset my EGT records and drove around for 3 days, hot was 1200 (climbing the hill up to my house). After gears, reset EGT records again, same style driving for 3 days, checked the EGT's, highest they got was 950! Insane how much cooler the truck is running, way more power off the line, and the tranny feels like it is way happier when shifting. As an added bonus, I picked up 1.5-2 mpg. With 35's and 4.56's I am not getting better MPG then I was when I was running just the 33.7" tire with stock 3.73's.
