There should be plenty of options in the 235/85-16 size that is the O.E. fitment. I like the BFG Commercial TA for long life, but there are several brands and models available. Tire Rack can at...

I really don't think my '94 IDIT needs any more power. 3" DP, 3"- 4" Banks exhaust, and the PO might have had the fuel turned up, I'm not sure. But, with a 3000 pound load with a lot of height...

I connect my phone to the truck's sound system (aftermarket 10 year old Alpine) via 1/8" jack and use the phone's mic. No complaints on sound quality on either end. Some of it has to do with how...

Another RS 9000 vote here. The unloaded ride with the 9000s is better than what I experienced with Bilsteins, and loaded it is no comparison. Nothing against Bilsteins, I've had them on cars and...
