    (OP) Your welcome. Been out for some time. Once a Jar Head always a Jar Head. My Tundra is a great truck. Very well built. Big V-8. Burns gas. So what. (more , not less fracking helps) Plenty of power. You will always have detractors (Big 3 Truck guys) about our "Japanese" trucks made in Texas, by Texans with about 80% American sourced parts. Similar to the vaunted F-150. A lot of the Big 3 trucks larger than 1/2 ton are not made here. I guess Dodge owners do not mind their parent company being Fiat and and their 3/4 ton trucks made south of the border by non Americans (ie: Americans not earning a living by building them here) with 65% American sourced parts. I think the only major component on our truck that is non USA is the rear end and it is made by Hino Heavy Industries Japan. Their heavy duty vehicles (giant mining dump trucks for example) are sold all over the planet. I will keep this truck, since in 2007 it woke up the Big 3. 2nd gen, first year keeper and I only have just under 58K miles on it. My only complaint:::Toyota needs to wake up and offer a real locker and dump their autoLSD BS. After all, this is a 4 wheel drive. Aftermarket is either Auburn Gear limited slip or the expensive ARB locker. Another plus is all aftermarket goodies available for this truck. (Except for lockers). Can't get any better than that.

    Looking great, all of you. Can't go wrong with Nitto Trail. I have 295/70/18 on my truck. Maybe we should start a Nitto Club, haha.

    I love the Nitto Grappler G2 - 275/65R20. This is my second set. The first set I placed them on the truck at 85 thousand miles. I recently placed the new G2's
    275-65R20 last month when my vehicle has 167,200 miles and they still have some thread left. I did a 2400 mile trip and wanted new tires. For all I do, I love these tires because its a soft ride on the highway and have plenty of grip off-road too.

    Well done if I say so myself. I am going with the trail grappler M/T's although it would be nice to have a second set of DuraTrac's for every day driving. My Grapplers have a lot of tread left and they seem to be wearing well. Not sure what tread mileage people have been getting with these Grapplers with DDing

    I had the same tires on my 07 and yes when I would go down the road in the morning they felt out of balence, after I would drive a couple miles they would smooth right out.

    On the 295/65/20 is that a 3" or 4" lift?

    Do you have a lift on that? I'm looking to replace my stock 285/55/r20 to a larger tire, without a lift kit. Looking at Nitto Exo Grappler 285/60/r20, but concerned about rubbing.

    I am looking to go 285/65/20. I currently have 5100's on top setting. I am wondering if I will have to trim at all. Had to do my skid plate so that's done at least. I want to put them on my Toyota Carve wheels with a +60 offset... Will see I guess
