well it's been a long time coming but I just got my K&N CAI, 5 pc billet grill and supreme suspension leveling kit(2.5" front 1" back). Just order some new vision warrior 375 chrome rims in 20's x 9". The leveling kit goes on Monday with a 4 wheel alignment.the kit looks good...what i liked about it is that it's solid aluminum.No welds to break. I was thinking of getting netto trail grappler LT295/65R20.....if they fit there 35.47" tall.

fastNugly, ebay vendor name: e-autogrilles. As for the tires & wheels i went through Mr Wheel Deal on the net...so far they have been good guys to deal with. so for 4 295/65/20 Trail Grappler was only $1369..the moto metal m0959 for 4 $1059. even though they charge for shipping they are still cheeper then discount tire...that was a surprise for me. I did try to give the local guys a chance, but the wanted $800 more per set of 4 295/65/20 Trail Grappler.

I have most of my stuff shipped to a place across the border (RYDENS BOARDER STORE..they also have 1Lb bags of beef jerky there!!!), then pick it up there. The rims and tires were only a $100 more to ship to my door in Canada. But then you have to pay an import fee too. yeah I noticed that the air sensor was tricky to take out as well, and it did help with the sound. The combination of the CAI and the 14" Magnaflow sound real nice.

I live in Thunder Bay On, So for me the boarder is only a 35-40 min drive. Yeah I got the magnaflow from mufflex. It's a great kit and a easy install. The combo of the magnaflow and the K&N CAI sounds really good.

BTW mufflex uses real magnaflows, they just add some extra pipe and everything lined up real good. not 1 problem!! Just do it and you won't regret it!!

Thanks guys, I cant wait to take the winter wheels and tires off and get these on

I don't have any sound clips yet. But I will take one when I take some pics of the wheels and tires.


:SHOCKED: Ouch!! Sorry to hear that..and see that. Oh well s*#t happens to the best of us. I hope they do a good job on the repair. Oh and the install was easy, just take off the grille and bolt them on. If you got a buddy to help hold the inserts just where you want them as you tighten them would help, but not needed. 1 tip, top right insert (when looking at grille)...trim 1 bolt back about 1/4" for top right hold down.

Thanks. no rub on norm driving at all. The truck has a leviling kit, 2 1/2 in front and 1" in back. Thats as far as i'm going to go as i have plans to buy a 27-32 foot camp trailer. I don't think it would be good to have a big lift if I want to pull something that heavy.

are you asking about the leveling kit or trailer? leveling kit is a supreme suspension. As for a trailer maybe a trail runner or Dutchmen. Either way I'll most likely buy from the U.S.. The Nitto Trail Grapples I got were $1400 U.S. and here in Thunder Bay they wanted another $800 on top of that..so $2200 in Canada for the SAME tires!! So I'll most likely get the trailer in the U.S. as well and save big cash.

I'm tempted to put the lower billet grill on my sport...but I'm also installing tow hooks. How do you think this would hold up with 2 small rectangular holes cut in it? Maybe mound a rectangle piece of plastic on the back side for support...


I think you'll be alright. there are 5 spot welded bolts on the back and a few vertical braces. so i think you should be able to customize it.
