Welcome! great looking rig you got there

Quick question regarding your tires - are they the Toyo MT's? if so, any comments on them so far? Just got back from Les Scwab looking at some tire options and will probably go w/ the Toyo MT's next month.

Happy New Year!

Yes they are. So far I love them, I dont even notice the noise over the engine unless i really try to listen for them. Took them all over Chloride road in death valley without ever going into 4wd as they have great traction. This week im heading for Tahoe and ill see if theres any snow.

I went with 35's, there is a slight rub at full turn. I hope to try for 37's in the future!

Nice setup, it looks great. I noticed the two recovery points on the rear bumper. Did you spec that out? I speced them out on my build but a miss communication caused it not to happen.

I added a couple things to the front and rear bumpers, I dont remember how much it was for the recovery points in the rear. The rear bumper also has 3 hinge points both sides ,and a plate that will allow the tire carrier to hold a 37inch tire

Jayson,

I was wondering what you have mounted on the rear, driver's side corner of the roof rack?

Its a Lacrosse weather station on a removable bracket. The system is wireless and seems to be fairly accurate. Wind speed is close to my gps and speedo until about 62mph and then it falls off due to turbulance (I think). The rain guage needs to be reset after driving due to the bouncing on rough roads and i had to move the temp sensor away from the middle of the roof because the heat being radiated through the penthouse top.
