good choice! I know a few guys who have them (at least 8 guys) and they love them! and the 295's are only like an inch taller than what you had i think?

Yea, it hurts. But get everything you want, no matter the cost. It's just money. Can't take it with you.

Did some routine maint. stuff and cleaned it up. only put 80mi on it in the past 2 weeks! HAHAHA! :clapping:

Changed the front and rear diff fluids, coolant flush with a new radiator 2 monthes ago, cleaned out the air filter and re-oiled it, greased all points up front, then washed, clay bared, waxed, quick polish of the wheels, shook out floor mats, dusted inside, cleaned all windows, and then let parked it so gingerly so that its easy to get the motorcycle in and out of the garage!

true story! and you know what my lady told me??!?!?! I HAVE to keep the truck I have now no matter what!

she gave me full permission when we move to a new place for a nice shop, and said when I get my new truck, this one goes for a full frame off resto! going to fix the rust on the rockers, fix the few dents, repaint. clean, strip, and coat the frame. clean the whole under side really well. more motor mods.... and probably some nice wheels and tires.... after I ditch the body lift and baby 6-7.5in suspension lift in tune of a 10-12in Cognito lift.

might only put the 7-9in Cognito on the new truck when I get it if I keep this one and it gets the full resto!

What's the allure of a lift that big on a daily driver? I get it on a toy, I've got 37's on my jeep, but my truck is 2" up n that's more than I really want.

Yea, my jeep has got 4" with 37s and I had to spend almost 2k on gears and it sucks getting in and out. I couldn't imagine doing it everyday.

I never understood that either. I daily drove my ZJ lifted 4.5" on 33s for a couple of months and it was unbearable.

In the last 2 days I've installed front and rear Weathertechs in my 2013 Tundra. Also swapped out the highway tires out. Couldn't find anything better than 4 ply in a 255 70 18 so had to go to 275 65 18 and got Hankook Dynapro ATMs on her yesterday. Getting quotes for a spray in bed liner and topper. Also trying to decide between Wet Okole or Marathon seat covers. Had marathons before, but the wife wants something "more comfortable than that crappy cordura". Its also a pain in the ass taking the Marathons on and off to wash them.

Not being rude or anything but why did you waste money on hankooks? Also, why a spray in bedliner and a bed cover? A spray in bedliner is for strength and durability. If it were me, and I wanted a bed cover, I'd get a carpet liner or drop in instead of spending the money on a spray in.

Hankooks have been a solid tire for me since I was 15. I run 95% gravel and they have held up the best. I had a little run while I was in college of trying others, and the first tires on my 06 Tundra were Geolanders, but since then I have been running the ATM and having good luck with them. One of my buddies had a piece of rebar go into his and it never went flat and made a God awful noise going down the road. I have never had a flat with a Hankook on a vehicle.

I put the camper on during hunting season. It comes off the rest of the year. I take everything I may need and keep it in the back the entire season. Makes it harder for people to steal my stuff. I may not need the layout blinds that day so I can leave them locked up. I carry almost a full pickup truck all hunting season. It gets muddy as well sliding the cart and sled in and out. Also have you ever seen underneath a drop in when they come out? I have when we pulled the one out of my Dakota. I am going to do it right the first time. Come Mid February the topper comes off till Sept. 1. Only thing this truck does is hunt, fish, and tow a boat so I set it up to fit my needs. Its taken me 15 years to figure how to equip my vehicles to fit my hunting style, so I am not going to change what works for me.

Ahh, I thought you meant a bed cover, not a camper. I see tons of people putting a bed cover on and never using their bed any more. in that scenario a spray in bedliner is a waste, IMO.

I dont mind it at all, I really like sitting above traffic so I can see a lot better. I pretty much drive to work get out, work, then hop in to drive home. So I dont mind the jump, as Im not in and out of my truck a lot. still does what I need it to with occasional towing, hauling duck gear, and just driving. the big tires just make it a little easier to get around where I goose hunt.

plus I guess you could say my truck isnt a true daily driver.... I drive my motorcycle to work and school when its not raining or snowing. Or I dont need to haul something large or a passenger. I still run to walmart to get a few things here and there on the bike too.

Post hunting season wash this afternoon. Still have yet to clay bar, glaze, wax truck, and polish wheels.
Products used to get as seen in picture-
Adam's All purpose cleaner
Adam's car wash soap and wash pad
Adam's great white drying towel
Adam's under carriage spray for fender wells
Adam's super VRT for the trim on front bumper, door handles, and on the mirrors.
as well I also used Adam's total interior detailer which really blows stuff like armor- all out of the water!
