nice truck there....do you know how to fill out your sig,if so you can put all that in there so every time you post people will see it...i think you will find most guys very agreeable on this site,most of us would rather drive a demax but we have alot of respect for the 5.9L cummins

OK I have it in my sig now.

I run the TY303 tire from Yokahama, ita a pretty aggressive tire, currently have close to 80k on them and prolly enough tread left for another 60 maybe...they have a 6400 lb load rating so that makes it alot safer for towing the backhoe

Cheers,Kevin

for the look of stock but in a 19.5 :D - I pull a lot but also put tons of highway miles on, what kind of mileage and ride are you getting with the yokies?

they are 35.2" tall and weigh in at 172 lbs each, my truck weighs in at 9660 so its a heavy truck, when empty I can get 20 mpg most of the time and an occasional 21 so its pretty good

I run the nv5600 6 speed tranny so it works very well at 70mph and 1900 rpm then when I tow it works very well in 5th geer at 65 mph and 2100 rpm

I have an excellent combonation here the only thing I dislike is the tires are still sidewall and make for a rougher ride.if I had the chance to do it all over again I would go with airbag suspension too.....still may some day
