I liked my last set of terra grapplers now I have ridge grapplers like them even better.

It doesn't look like the Duratracs come in the size I am looking for. I don't really want to level the front of the truck or get any spacers.

If you tow at night dont level your truck. I had to drive with just the fog lights on because the headlights blinded everyone while towing.

Rigid fog lights are better then some headlights

I had the same issue until I got Deavers +3 in the back. Then it sat nice and level with a loaded trailer and rode amazingly.

Mid perch with Deavers +3

How did the deavers preform on the road unloaded?

I rarely tow. But this truck's ass steps out when it hits expansion joints on curves at +75mph. I have heard deavers might help but I dont want a harsh ride unloaded.

Fuuuuuck, that is a nice truck. I am not sure nitto makes the size I am looking for either. I will have to look into those

One of the cool features on this truck are the adjustable headlights from the cab. If I do tow something at night, then I can turn a little dial and bring them down to non blinding levels. The main reason I don't want to do a level is how squatty the rear end gets while towing anything, it looks really off to me. Plus, I don't want to spend any extra money right now.

I loved them. I should have done them when I had 0 miles on the truck (the first one). Seriously, read the deavers threads on FRF, not one negative thing about them. If you feel the ass is too squishy, do deavers, yesterday.

If you never plan on towing, go with the +2. It'll remove the lift block but still sit at stock height and level at mid perch (do gen 2s have the perches?) with all the benefits of the deavers. They ride ever so slightly firmer but it's worth every penny.

Gen 2 dont have perches. They have collars or some replacement springs came out not to long ago. I have 3" collars and the truck sits almost nose high. I looked at deavers but didnt know if I wanted +2 or +3.

I need to talk to the other guy on here with a gen 2. I think he has deavers and a new tune now. I almost want to ride in one before deciding.

+2 for perches or collars and level, +3 for the "stock" rake except an inch or two higher and/or towing.

I am curious how you like those and what you think of them. I think those are what KJ got on his truck as well.
waiting for them to come in, I will let you know as soon as I put them on the truck:bigthumb:

Go with KO2's, I have had them on my Ram 2500 for 53k miles and now hitting wear bars. Tires are great in the snow, no road noise, great in wet weather and looks badass!!! I rotated my tires every 10k mikes. You will not be disappointed at all!! I will be getting another set this month before winter.

I had the duratracs on my frontier. they lasted over 60k miles and would have gone longer if I did the alignment after the rack was replaced. I figured new tires were inbound, so I didn't bother.
I then put the toyo open country AT IIs on it. they were great.

I liked them so much, I put them on my new truck @ 6600 miles

I've got a little over 40k on the KO2s and in 2yrs and they're nearing replacement for snow duty but would continue to ride 'em out another 5-10k if spring was starting now. Replacing with another set when DT runs their sale again.

Even on the Raptor, at 5k tire rotation intervals (just did it every oil change because it was easy to remember), the KOs had almost perfect tread wear. The DuraTracs I had on for about 10k and same thing, almost perfect wear.

Lighter duty vehicles will definitely see long life out of any tires as long as the rotations stay constant.

Yup, been rotating every 6k which is every other on MS. I go old school because old truck and not that many miles.

I even did my own front alignment and everything is wearing great.

sup.

my at3's are sweet.

ive not felt any all terrain compare to dedicated snow tires though. ive had bfg at's on my jeep, hankook atm's on my burb, which i loved, and now cooper at3s on my poverty gasser, and dedicated snow tires on my rwd sierra were fucking awesome.

id love to have a set of snow tires for my truck though.
