    First week with LC100, It's been exciting so far, took it offroad under powerlines near home Cross Plains, seeing smile on 10yr old son and he called it "legit", it's priceless!, also found ipod/iphone 4 cable, now have itues.

    I been getting price quotes on 5 tires, as we discover spare tire born date is 2003.

    Let me know if these will work as first upgrade, i have top 3 on list as following.

    1. Tires KO2s 285/65/18 or Duratrac 285/65/18
    2. Remove Slide stock steps
    3. Suspension OEM 2.5 or Tough Dog 2.0
    4. Recovery Gear

    DiscountTire quoted $1352 for 5 tires, installed, KO2s
    Sears quoted $1900,
    GoodYear quoted $1570 for 5, Durtrac

    Since you're local, go see my brother-in-law at Jack Calhoun Tire on South Sweetwater in Lithia Springs. I'm sure he can beat those prices.

    I'll keep an eye out for you, I'm in south Paulding.
