Say, were did you pick those tires up at? ;)
Really...could you let me in on your decision to go with the Toyos? And don't tell me because it almost spells Toyota. :D
Looks great! :D

Wife don't know it's done yet, she thinks it was in the shop for an oil change.
:grinpimp:
I got them from a kick ass tire store in Bonham Texas.......My decision was based on the research I did here and thru our LSLC mailing list.
Seems to be one of the top chioices if not the top choice.

Awwwwww how sweet of you....careful your showing your softer side...

Hmmm kick ass tire store in Bonham...might have to check them out. :D So is this a good all around tire? Manly on road use? Tread looks a little tight (close) to consider it all terrain.

I am trying to decide what tires to get on mine. I might pm you with some of my thoughts.

Thanks B-

Is that the 851/860 combo?

Hell if I know, Gary Coberly gave me a smoking deal on it, used, I just know he said it was a 2" OME, shocks were included, I do know it rides so much better now, smoother on bumps, but firmer and more stable in corners...... :D

Well no matter the combo Tex it looks much better. Sure the wife is going to be thrilled with it, both appearance and ride characteristics. :D

I figure if you get the chance to buy an OME kit for $200, you don't ask no questions......did have to call JJ and make sure the longer springs went where I thought though....

I did think...wait maybe there is a reason she isn't in the loop.

:doh: If mamma ain't happy, no body's happy!


You could play dumb...."That new oil they used was really light and gave the truck some lift..."

These are definately the words of a married man who has previously had to spin a yarn or two to escape the wrath of the significant other. :D

Glad I ain't you Butch. Good luck.

The wife likes it, if she wrecks it and it multiplies the damage, well insurance will cover it. :D
