    I'm glad you're cheating on us. They probably gave you things we couldn't- like STD's and terrible OTPHJ

    Looks great. If I hadn't just installed KO2s I might be all over that. Speaking of Firestone, if those helper springs don't do it for you, Firestone makes a great airbag set.

    I make sure my wear indicators are REALLY showing before I buy new tires as well, they are too expensive not to. I have had a set of Destination ATs on my Tacoma and got 44000 miles out of them, they were great in snow & mud and fairly quiet on the road. I wouldnt hesitate to buy another set

    I installed my Duratracs on 3/17/14. Almost to two years. Now i need to figure out how many miles i have on them.
    Purchased the truck with ~25,000 miles. I now have ~49,000 now so i should be around 24,000 miles on them.

    I pulled the horse trailer today for the first time with the new tires and hellwig leaf springs and what a difference the leaf springs made in the way the truck sat with the weight and the way it rode, no more bouncing. Thats the only thing I will say negative about the Tundra, it has plenty of pulling power the rear suspension is just to soft.
    [​IMG]
    Before i had to use a straight hitch insert and the trailer would sit level but the truck was sagging in the rear, today a used a 2" drop and the trailer sat nice and level and so did the truck. Hellwig make a great product that does exactly what they say it will do

    I found this pic and thought I'd show a comparison
    [​IMG]
    This was when the truck was a few months oldest a straight insert
    [​IMG]
    And this is now with a 3 1/4" drop
