I really wanted Nitto Trail Grapplers but I didn't want to pay an extra $50/tire for them.

I liked them when they had full tread. Now I hate them.

Next set is probably gonna be something with a tread wear warranty.

I'm already saving up for new wheels and tires.

I had 15,000km on my duratracs and they still looked like brand new before I sold them...
Maybe with that Florida heat the tires get soft and wear down quicker haha

I just hope my next set doesn't do the same.

Yea, but I think my hardcore off-road days are over, at least for this truck.

I have to say though, a lot of the rednecks around town are breaking their necks looking at it because of the lean.

I don't mind a little squat for looks.
My 99 had some squat before I had time to install my shackles. Little more than an inch.

I think I have a lot more than an inch difference. Shackles should be here soon though.

Went to a Florida Ranger meet today. Drove 2 hours to Tampa for it. Farthest trip I've ever taken the truck on. Truck did great!
