    Earthroamer: new tire/wheel/suspension

    Longevity and reliability are interesting questions... I am not a huge fan or hater of air suspension, however in general air leaks seem to be occasionally problematic (at least with the traditional add-on/auxiliary springs for HD pickups). Air springs certainly have their positives, and while...

    Excellent, slow wear! Sidewall puncture sucks...had a tread puncture recently while traveling and also plugged it myself.

    That is fantastic wear/longevity, and still 6/32" remaining, love it! What size were the last set...285 or 255? $100 per tire is a big difference, don't blame you, and sometimes it's nice to try something else, hope they perform and last well. As you know, there are many good 2-ply...

    The 255/85R16 Tire Official List

    No arguments about what you said regarding the size or how it has affected your Tacoma, makes sense, but this is very much chassis specific. The 255/85/16, or 17 inch versions, are quite small tires these days, particularly for larger trucks, or my built old 4Runner; platform and setup matters...

    Yep, I don't live up there at the top, but also don't hesitate to use all of it, and occasionally bouce the needle off the rev limiter.. 🤷🏻‍♂️😀😀👍👍

    2018 Ram 3500 Expedition Family Adventure Vehicle

    Interesting, just disconnect the sensors, but not delete anything... curious how it drives, what else changes if anything, and what warning lights are illuminated (and if there are any repercussions)?

    2018 Ram 3500 Expedition Family Adventure Vehicle

    Could not agree more, most late model 6.7 ISB engines, particularly the latest ones that are using less EGR, if cared for and driven well, will likely last a very long time. Drive it like a car, maybe not sometimes. In many cases it will be the third or fourth owner that needs to do major...

    Sway/body roll bar looks good. Attic storage is smart, practical, and looks very well done. 👍

    A Hawk in the Arctic

    That was as good or better answer than I could've given 👍. Yes, the standard soft wall has three layers, an outer and inner layer of fabric, with insulating closed cell foam between the two layers. Although the aluminum in a FWC is touted and seen as a positive, condensation is a very real...

    A Hawk in the Arctic

    I have no idea regarding the price of the shell models, however I don't think the regular 'built'/optioned slide-in models are double the price of a similar FWC, but certainly more expensive. Only you can decide if the lack of condensation and overall performance is worth it, money and value is...
