  1. Truck looks great. You’ve put a ton of work into it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Sold awhile ago, sorry! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Yea the wild peaks are pretty heavy, but I think all of the tires I was looking at were within 4-5 lbs of each other. I’m going to be over 60lbs per tire regardless lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Any testing in the snow or rain? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. What lift and wheel/tire combo are you running? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. If you ever need to get the ball joint separated, just hit the spindle with a hammer until it jiggles itself loose Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Coronavirus

    For everyone stating that “it’s just the flu”, here you go. We’ve surpassed the (estimated) death count of the entire 2018-2019 flu season, in a little over a month, according to the CDC. Opinions about how to handle this aside, it’s no longer “just the flu”. https://www.memorandumdaily.com/2020/04/coronavirus-has-now-killed-more-people.html?m=1 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Coronavirus

    I never claimed other studies weren’t also biased, I was just commenting on the one that others were taking as gospel that this virus is nothing, and pointing out the flaw. The study as a whole is a good start, but the sampling method definitely has statistical bias. And like I said, strained healthcare systems are location dependent. Wife is a nurse, affected by layoffs/furloughs at a hospital, I know the strain is not happening everywhere. That’s why states are taking at look at opening back up, which is probably a good thing.

    The numbers in that Santa Clara study are biased. If you think I’m wrong, take a look at the sampling method they used to get those numbers. You also cherry picked the highest number from the article (85x). That’s the highest of the range, lowest of the range was 50x. Big difference there. We won’t truly know how accurate that is until they do more widespread tests like that with better sampling methods. It’s likely that the actual death rate will be much lower, but that doesn’t mean we should open back up immediately and put more strain on our healthcare (more on that at the bottom). I didn’t even read the news articles about it because they’re going to skew the interpretation of the results from what they actually are. Go read the actual white paper on the study. And yes, I have a masters degree in statistics It is worse than the flu. According to the CDC, 314 people have died from the flu in the US in the last week. Close to 10,000 from covid. All numbers from CDC, nothing from the news. And you think that’s not worse? However, karnut is right. The whole point of lockdown is to slow the spread and stop the overloading of our healthcare system, not to stop the virus. You cant stop the virus until you get a vaccine. That much is 100% location dependent. New York is extremely different from Southern California where I’m at. That’s why our president and the governors are working together to come up with a plan that will allow states to open up, once they meet a certain criteria, NOT once they meet a certain time frame Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks! Couple goals right there Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yea everything I’ve been looking at is in the 60-65 lb range so I’m expecting that. I have E rated now so I’m used to it riding like a brick. How have the C rating tires been holding up for you? And are they 3 peak rated? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Coronavirus

    You’re 100% correct, it wasn’t just the White House that mismanaged, the government as a whole mismanaged. Both parties, not just one. As for what we should have done, access to testing way earlier, and contact tracing from those who tested positive. Socially distance and prevent large gatherings long before the CDC “recommended it”. Hell, we still don’t even have the amount of testing we need. First week of March the White House promised millions of tests available, they’re still not available. The entire US only tests 120k/day according to the CDC. The virus was going to come regardless, we could have “flattened the curve” way before with mass testing and earlier social distancing rules. Could have prevented a total lockdown that we’re seeing today Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Coronavirus

    Just because it came from China doesn’t excuse the fact that the US federal administration didn’t do anything in the month of February to proactively stop the spread of the virus. They waited until it got bad to do anything. Look at all the articles that said they knew about it in November and dismissed it. Well look where we’re at today and tell me if they had handled it differently, that we would be in the same position. Was the pandemic trumps fault? Absolutely not. Did he mismanage the handling of the pandemic? Yup. Same as other countries. We had a chance to start in February but we didn’t start until March. That’s a whole month gone to waste, that could have lead to a quicker “reopening” of the US Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Been thinking about new tires lately. Either going with 295/70/17 again, or up to a 285/75/17. Top picks are: Falken wildpeak at3w Cooper at3 xlt Nitto ridge grappler Maybe ko2s? Still undecided on these Any opinions, brand or size? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. How much did you rub with this setup? Want to do the same thing Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
