Well that's good. I love the look of 'em but I'm in between with BFG T/A's, Falken Wildpeaks and those. Love the looks of all of 'em but I want something that looks good, rides and performs good when I get new tires.

How noisy are they? Mine are still pretty quite but they only have 10-12000km on them.
How many miles do you have on them?

They're not obnoxious like massive mud tires, but they have a steady hum to them. I have about 16,000 miles on them. I'm only really expecting 25,000 out of them, and I think I should be good for that.

If I didn't want to try a different tire, I would probably buy another set of these. But I want to try BFG M/T's just to see what they can do.

Hey fordzilla I know this I'm super late to this party and off topic but where did you get that rear glass? The one with the sliding window I've been wanting to put one of those on my truck did you out it in yourself?

Mine came from the junkyard.

I did install it myself. It ended up being about $50 to do. The window was $20, and the 3M Window Weld butyl tape was $25. Well worth it though.

Here's a how-to on resealing the window, which details how to remove it and re-seal it.

Front differential cover is sealed back up and ready to go. I still need to replace the axle seals.

Going to the junkyard tomorrow to try and grab the third mounting bracket.
