I have ridge grapplers on my 17. Damn good looki g tires but are wearing faster than the g2 on my 15. On a drw I would stick to as narrow as possible. Further apart the tires are the less they Will float off road

- Nitto Terra Grappler AT
- Nitto Terra Grappler G2

Don't get the KO2s, they perform fine, but the mileage sucks. I'll be having to replace mine soon and I'll be lucky if I get 35k out of them, probably end up around 30k.

Well this was today's project. I though I was gunna have a helping hand, who was I kidding...... He bailed on me last minute, so removing the B&W 5th wheel rails and installing this B&W goose neck took a little longer than I hoped. Oh well. Tomorrow is gunna be cleaning up the previous owners mess. I had to modify the brackets a little to work with the AirRide bags, I had to notch them so I could install the U-bolts.

@TDavis1992 has the ST Maxx on his truck. They didnít seem to squat much pulling my parts truck home. Iím in between those and the terra grapplers @bfaucett runs for my next set of drives.
Curious how either one would hold up on my truck.

Down graded the 17 to a 13 Acura RDX tonight. Got tired of the ridiculous high payment and I can have the car and an older truck for less in payments each month all while saving on finance charges

I run GoodYear Trail Runner AT's with a 2" spacer. No dot issues, quiet, and seem like they will last a while. Around $172 per tire through our national tire account.

I had them on my LMM before I went to 19.5s had ~55k on them and 4-5/32 tread left.. when I pulled them Dot required min 4/32 tread depth for steers...
They're louder than straight tread but quieter than most at tires.. fairly decent in snow mud and ice
Got 305/70/17 on my burban 2500

This piece showed up today...



@bfaucett From what I read in the regs, an AOBRD doesnít have to connect to a vehicles ECM, and doesnít require engine hours reading, odo reading, etc...
