    Falken A/T3W vs BFG A/T KO2 for roughly the same price...thoughts and/or experience?

    Thanks for the replies... I did decide to go with the Falkens. I really liked their performance on my Trooper, and I love the look of them. Ordered 'em up today, appointment made for next week for installation! Thanks!

    Falken A/T3W vs BFG A/T KO2 for roughly the same price...thoughts and/or experience?

    Getting new shoes on the van (2017 Chevy Express 2500 RWD)... it's down to Falken Wildpeak A/T3W's or BFG A/T KO2's. I ran that Falken's on my old Trooper and loved them. Costco has a promotion going on now that's $110 off the BFG's, which makes the total price (including tax and installation)...

    2005 Express Camper Build

    Nice, looks similar to the low-key build we're doing on our 2017 Express 2500. Are you going to lift it or run bigger tires?

    Any personal experience with the 2wd leveling kits from BoulderOffRoad or Weldtec?

    Got a 2017 Express 2500 RWD van, and am weighing out the options of installing one of the leveling kits from either Boulder Off Road or Weldtec. I've seen bunch of pictures of the kit installed, but have only heard of one report of how the van drove afterwards - and it wasn't good. Of course, I...

    Dude. Holy cow. I’m happy to be able to kind of build a somewhat square bed frame out of 2x4 [emoji1787] Beautiful build, and I’ll be hitting you up about the electrical. We’re in the early stages of building out 2017 Express 2500 12 passenger van. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    2017 Express 2500 RWD tire size question

    Wondering if anyone has any experience with running 265/75R16’s on the stock rims of a newer model Express passenger van? I’ve got the stock size LT245/75R16 tires on the stock rims on my 2016 Express 2500 RWD. I’ll be doing a leveling kit next summer, but need new tires in the next month...

    Chevrolet Express / GMC Savana RWD Van Info thread (All years / 1500, 2500, 3500)

    Hey all. Just brought home our 2017 Express 2500 2wd the other day. It’s got the stock 16” wheels on it, and 245/75r16 tires. I’ve got to buy new tires before the snow flies - what’s the largest size I can move up to without trimming or rubbing? I’ll be buying the Falken Wildpeak AT3W tires, as...

    When shopping for used, how much does a rebuilt engine and trans add to the value?

    Not exactly sure, it was the owner prior to the seller that had it rebuilt.

    When shopping for used, how much does a rebuilt engine and trans add to the value?

    Looking at a 2004 Grand Cherokee Limited. Good condition, 155,000 miles. Not much rust (for Michigan). In the past 40k both the engine and transmission have been rebuilt - both verified by receipts. How much would that change the price vs an identical WJ without a rebuilt engine and trans...

    Checking out an ‘04 Grand Cherokee tonight - what to look for?

    Very nice! Thanks for all your assistance - it’s greatly appreciated. I’ll take your advice about the spring isolators when I do my lift. Most likely going with Rusty’s Off-road 2.5” coil spring / shock kit. Have had good luck with Rusty’s stuff in the past. Got 2 new OEM tow hooks on order...
