Thank you. I got those and the lettering for the tailgate from tvdvinyldecals.com! They are very tedious to install but if you follow the directions they aren’t too bad. Makes all the difference in the look in my opinion.Nice! I like the lettering highlight Was that part of the STX or did you add it? Our XLT doesn't have it.
The Falkens are better in the snow than the Goodyear.I've been looking at either some Falken Wildpeaks (which I know a handful of people on here have already) or the Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs (my brother had those on his Ranger in college and swears by them and will probably get them for his next truck whenever he gets it). Either of those will put me back at least $800. But again, not going to do anything for a little bit, until these either wear out or I get fed up with them.
Crazy that you say that, because I grew up in the UP and actually went to college at Michigan Tech in Houghton! So I'm well acquainted with bad winter driving. haha One of the reasons I'm so invested in good tires and everything, because I know just how bad it can get and how much help they can be. Especially on a winters night trip across the UP.
NICE!! That would have been fun....We got 24" at our house just outside Duluth this past weekend. Spent 6 hours yesterday snowblowing and shoveling the driveway. Drift in front of the garage was 3 feet, the yard was up to my thighs, and the plow bank was up to my chest. The snowblower kept breaking down, either because of bad gas or something in the fuel system, so after a dozen times of restarting it, getting only a couple passes, and it sputtering to a stop again, I decided to make a run to the gas station down the road for some fresh gas and fuel treatment. I had cleared the area in front of the garage and part of the driveway, but not the plow bank yet. So I put the truck in 4H normal mode, had my wife out on the road making sure no one was coming, and I just blasted through the bank. It was probably about 10 feet long, headlight deep, and packed pretty good, but the truck didn't miss a beat. Slowed down slightly just from the impact, as snow slid up onto the hood, but no tire slippage and no intervention from the electronics. Granted the rest of the drive to the gas station the front parking sensors were going crazy because they were packed with snow though. haha
Not to totally highjack this thread but have you tried using Sta-Bil before storing these? I had 2 pressure washers for work and all my lawn and snowblower stuff back east and never had any problems when using Sta-Bil. Right now they're having a 25% off sale with free shipping using Code: CYBERMONDAY19 at checkout.NICE!! That would have been fun....
On a completely unrelated note - I've changed over to running non ethanol gas in all my "occasional" engines (lawn mower, weed wacker, chainsaw, pressure washer, etc). It has saved me multiple issues. Before when using ethanol I would be cleaning out fuel systems or replacing gummed up carbs regularly. The gas is more expensive, but it it WELL worth the money, IMO. I'm fortunate to have two places close by that sell it.
