Put new tires on recently.

Ended up deciding on Yokohama MTs. Kinda overkill I know. Price-wise they were pretty reasonable and there is a 30 day trial period so I figured I'd try them out. If I ended up hating them I'd opt for Toyo ATs which were a bit more expensive.

Went from 275/70R17s to 285/70R17s and it looks like I will need to do the cab mount chop. They rub in reverse.

Noise isn't terrible, not a whole lot louder than the KO2s were after they got a few miles on them. They also ride pretty smooth. Ride isn't any worse than the KO2s and I noticed they needed a lot less weight to balance.

So far it seems like the mileage has dropped, although its hard to tell in just a few tanks of gas. I also felt like the mileage dropped after I put the KO2s on and after I went back and looked at my mileage spreadsheet and long term it was almost exactly the same.

Yup

Pretty solid buy for anyone in the market for a full size truck. I think they studied all the current trucks well before putting together this version

Plus buy one in 2022 and it'll look current until 2032

New drive train looks promising, but why are they using nickel metal hydride instead of Li-ion?

Wait, you keep a mileage spreadsheet? On a V8 4R? What's even the point? :rofl:
