Quad mod is the adding of the bottom reflectors to your running and brake lights.

If you do a search, there are lots of threads on it. It's a decent and cheap mod.

265/75/16. Haven't tried to do full turn yet to see if rubbing occurs. I imagine I will need some spacers, just not sure in size. I feel like I am driving a monster truck. Lol. More pictures tomorrow of other things.
