You could have an increased rolling resistance issue. Some truck tires are terrible in that regard. Did you go from a street tire to an AT? That might be why you are having such a noticeable difference.

Agreed...the thing looks great; did you do the T-bar crank?

Good to know, as I finally ordered Nitto Terra Grapplers in 265/75s and figured that mod was a necessity. If my '02 Edge will look like yours in the end, I may just leave it, too.

That's what I've heard from a lot of folks here, so that's why I bought 'em. Can't wait!
