Thanks guys! Im not liking these km2s so much but it was a deal thats very hard to pass so I grabbed 'em, and they look pretty. Ill most likely go with a/t's thats better suited for our rainy weather here.

As far as engine mod, boost is probably in the future it but I should hold it for now seeing I just dumped money in it

I am running BFG AT's and they are great! I ran Cooper MT's for a little bit and they were to noisy, so I pulled them off and sold them.

I was going to S/C my truck, but plans have changed as I will be getting married in October.

Yeah ive had the Bfg a/ts b4 and liked it or maybe ill try the duratrac when these wore it. Imo, the km2 are too stiff, heavy, and too noisy. My last m/t's were mickey thompson's which were pretty good for mud tires.
Looks like were in the same boat, Im getting married this august. lol

Hey Boost,
Great looking truck. I just received 3 of the mods you put on your truck and have a couple of questions.
1) 5100 Bilsteins - Just had those installed yesterday, only set them to .85 lift but when I drove to get the truck aligned I noticed a vibration/hum that was not there b4. Did you have the diff vibration problems others have reported, dpes alignment help?
2) URD MAF Sensor calibrator - How do you like it? I jsut got one but I am a little intimidated on installing it, how or who installed yours?
3) Doug Thorley headers - Just shipped to me, how loud are they? I want to upgrade the exhaust system below the cats (new tubes/muffler) but I am concerned about loudness.

Thanks guys!
-No I dont have the vibration issue that a lot of people seem to get. When do u get the vibes? I believe thats associated with either the driveshaft carrier or the front diff. Search around theres a big thread on it that might help ya!
-The MAF cal was pretty easy. Just gotta solder up a few wires and follow the wire colors. I like it, it helped out a lil, I gotta tune it but dont have a wideband.
-I suggest u get a resonator along with the new catback ur getting as it makes the exhaust raspy at times. Im in the process of doing that now. Im running a gibson catback, not loud at all, just got raspy after the headers. It does bring out a few ponies out and well worth it.
