Installed chrome Weston nerf bars. Also, put $75 in the tank. Didn't fill it up, won't even last me a week, & I'm sure gas will go up from now until then. Thanks CA....

Changed out my 265 wide (30.6") spare tire for a 235 wide (32") spare.
This way, it matches closer to my 32.2" tires and gives me back 1 1/4 inches back on clearance/ exit angle.

Got in mine at 430am and drove to work. Looked at her out the window prob the average 3 times throughout the day until I left work at 230pm. Drove her home, and stared at her while I mowed the lawn. Hooked up the boat for a quick run to the gas staion to top off the tank since I start a week vacation tomorrow!!!!! Just locked her up and said goodnight. Still love this truck!

I have a work truck, so the love of my life ( no other ladies in my life )( kids grown and gone ) sat in the Air Conditioned Garage all day. Came home an drooled over her, did not want to take her out in the heat. Went out and installed some sill guards on the rear entry doors. Then told her good night my sweet Queen. Taking a road trip to the Pot Hole/ Decrepit Roads of Tucson this weekend. Probably competes with off roading in the Baja Races.
Surprised? Tucson roads among nation's worst, says report - KGUN9

Dropped it off at the dealer. Two weeks and old and two trips to the dealer. Really hoping this doesn't become a trend. Weather techs come in tomorrow so hopefully it'll be done and I can toss those in

235/85/16?
Yup, the spare sits on a 16 in Work truck rim (still considered full size). The problem is once I switched to 32.2 and possibly going to full 33s again, the spare is almost 2.5" off so I wanted to bridge the gap.
If I ever need to use the spare, it will be in a corn field at sunset so I wanted something more aggressive than the stocker.

235/85 r16 was the thinnest i could find that yielded a similar height.

Because it mounts on the 8-9" rim, its not pizzacutter-ish, but it is still an inch thinner than the replacement.

(Discount Sells GT brand AT and Mudders for about $120 on discounttiredirect.com and walmart mounted it for $9 - its good enough to get me home from the field but I wouldn't suggest that brand for 55000 miles).

How'd you get the two bolts off at the front wheel well? I have some Westins to install and the bolts are painted over.

Got my line-x done today.
