MTR/K's, right? Looks great. I love that color, too.

I run MTR/K's too, and I'll only give you one suggestion: rotate REALLY regularly. I'm absolutely in love with these tires but I got lax on rotating regularly and the front tires have now worn much faster than the rears. I've only rotated maybe twice, and they're definitely not wearing evenly. If I hadn't been so preoccupied with everything else, I could have caught that before it became a serious issue.

Yes, they are Kevlar. Funny you mention that. The Manager at Discount Tire wanted me to fully understand that I don't miss a rotation cycle with them every 4k or expect uneven wear.
They are considerably louder then the previous Duratracs I had on, but that is a minor trade off to me.

Good point. But for the next week I'm suffering both!

Haha, I just went the other way... Traded mtr's for duratracs... Much too noisy for all my highway travel.

The cold weather and rain brings out the bad divers. Some old man in a 1/2 ton pickup merged on me. Fortunately he just hit my wheel so no damage was done.

Swinging by the stealership to pick up a blower motor resistor... $14.00 in stock.

Tired of having only mouse fart or hurricane settings.

Same story down here. Foggy as hell this morning and had a 2500 pull out in front of me.
Today was crazy though. The cold front hit within minutes. Walked out of the classroom and by the time I made it to the Jeep the temp had to of dropped 5 or more degrees.
Heater works like a charm

Took the old short arm lift off. Installed the new long arm setup. It was a very long day, but the ride now was worth all of the work.

Did you change your shocks too? Just curious if the change in ride comfort was from the arms alone. Everyone swears it's only the shocks and springs that affect ride quality.

Not sure if they are 7mm but yes that's where it is and how it's mounted.

Put in one complete housing of the HID retrofit and made a nice wiring harness for it.
