So how do they drive? Do they make the truck feel sluggish? And the obvious question, did they kill your gas mileage?

Ramathorne the tires are 285/55r/20s. As for the tonneau I live 30 miles from the us border at Grand Portage Mn and there is a store/shipping depot there so when I order anything from the US I have it shipped there to avoid the duty/brokerage fees. It also shaves weeks off of delivery times as my parcel goes directly there I pick it up and pay taxes at the border, shipped to my house the parcel leaves the states and goes to Regina to customs then to Manitoba's brokerage house then to me, its rediculous and every stop costs you more cash lol

MTtruckr this is the third truck I've put BFGs on I think the ride quality is very good and with gas here at 1.05litre or 4.20 us gal I wouldn't be using them if they affected my mileage to any great degree. I'm sure they are'nt as good as factory wranglers but I can't say exactly what the differance is

Yeah I'm getting about 1/2 mile per gallon more but I think that's more to do with the tires being at max tire pressure. HTH.

285/65/20 BFG AT TA KO Installed (also 2" leveling kit)
Dealer said they put 35psi in them (actually it was 30, 33, 34, 37 LOL)
I put 40psi all around and see how that works

What didn't make me happy was to see some marks (scuffs) on my flawless wheels from when they changed them!
I emailed them as they are closed until Monday
Nothing major but the def did some slight finish damage that won't buff out

I took some pics before I left to get them put on just in case!
Now I have some before and afters

Those scuffs are from when they balanced them, there is no real way to do it other than to put their plastic adapter on the outside of the rim itself (touching the chrome clading) while putting the metal rim adapter on the inside of the rim where it will actualy hits the aluminium part of the rim without touching the plastic cover. Like we all know the cladding is a stupid set up. The same thing happened to me when i installed my BF's myself. Oh well i guess mine r winter rims now, SRTs in the spring!
