thanks! I figured it would be a great place to look at our trucks, there are restaurants inside, it's cheap to get in, all ages are welcome, the atmosphere is excellent and we don't need to worry about food or drinks.

Well I just got them in October, and we didn't really have much snow this winter, but for the most they handled great, but ice is a different story.
I guess you really don't want a wide tire for ice, u want a narrower one so all the weight is focused on a smaller area.
Kind of like mudding, the wider the tire the more mud the wheel has to push aside, but wider will get you more traction, but on ice, its just more to slip.

But for general dirt and gravel, they grip and rip like crazy.
I wouldn't do too much driving across my lawn, they tend to tear up the grass, lol.

What are you looking to get into?

Thanks guys, Im looking to buy a 265/75/16 tire. Probably all terrian but it has to handle well in snow since I spend most of my time in Grand Forks ND for school. I have a thread in the wheels and tires section if you wanna take a look

Aug. 4 meet....I would try my best to attend. Never been to Canterbury.

Have basically done f*** all to the truck since the last meet....about the only thing I did was replace the coolant overflow hose and stick some "2.3" emblems on the side from a Mustang. I can't decide yet if that was a pretentious/dumb move or not, but they're on there. Still musing over the idea of what to do about my rusted fenders. Ultimately I wanna do a complete repaint to OD green but I'm light years away from that.

The only thing I have done so far, is the new topper, tinted my front windows, painted my wiper arms, got a new cd player, I got window vents, haven't installed them yet tho.

Still to do:
Front hitch
Grille and brush guard
Ohc and mirror and visors
Paint and install my gas tank skid then my front skid.

Lots to do, very little time.
