  1. So after 3 days of regular mixed driving about town...some interstate, some downtown, lots of 55-65 mph stop and go highways...I've averaged 15 mpg. The Toyos are heavier than the little Wranglers I took off, so I guess it should be expected. I won't know long trip mpg until next month when I have to drive to Orlando.
  2. So far avg says about 1 mpg less. Given the speedo is off about 1 mph, that could be the reason. Honestly, I haven't driven but about 50 miles since I put them on. Chillin and grillin all weekend. Back to the grind tomorrow so I'll get a good sense on in town mpg this week.
  3. Pic from 2019 before the Rhino-lined lower and steps. Towed this 21 ft Tahoe from DC to Huntsville. Didn't even know it was back there.
  4. Not too loud. Definitely not as loud as a pure mud tire, but just slightly louder than BFG KO2s. They may quiet down after a few miles to break them in. I will say they have a stiff sidewall. Much harder feel going over speed bumps at 33 psi. Could be that my Wranglers were wore out too.
  5. The Yokos are 1” taller than the 265 Wranglers, at least to the calculator below. Speed difference varies as speed increases.
  6. GPS shows 51 mph at 50 mph speedometer indicated. I can live with that.
  7. Side by side comparison of the factory vs the Yokohamas
  8. Finally pulled the trigger on new tires today. Went from the factory 265/65/18s to 285/65/18 Yokohama Geolandar X-AT. My son got them at his shop at a great price. Great fit on the stock 18s with a Rough Country level.
  9. Somebody needs to be let go for that shite. I would have lost it.
  10. So my saga may have finally ended... After the 5th repair attempt, it is NOT leaking. They replaced the entire back glass and remounted the spoiler again. After major rain here all day, it bone dry in the cab. I did check the glass install and it's level and square. The only different thing that I can see is a bead of clear sealant was run between the top of the glass and the cab frame. You wouldn't notice it if you didn't know it was there. So maybe...just maybe...my 2 year issue is over. We'll see how long it holds up. As for GM, they have until the
  11. Mine went in for the 5th repair attempt yesterday. This time they're replacing the rear window with a new one and they said they're gong to redo the spoiler for a 4th time. I'm going to ask them for a water hose before I ever leave the lot. Thanks to @Jeepincbum55 I'll make sure I check the level on the rear window replacement when I pick it up.
  12. They’ve been steam cleaning it each time. This week I’m going to push for a new headliner
  13. 4 repair attempts. New window is here and will go in this week. We'll see if it finally fixes the issue or if the tech screwed up my truck when he over torqued the spoiler bolts during repair #3.
  14. I'm with you. My 1993 1500 stepside 4.3l was a rock. 243,000 miles and never had a problem. Towed everything with that truck. Crossed the US twice towing a car. My 2019 is currently in litigation for buy back due to the rear window/spoiler leak that has been repaired 4 times and is worse than ever. First leak was 2 weeks after I bought it in March 2019. Other issues that have been reported or 'we don't have a fix for that now': Radio presets stay on the first 5 presets. This is a weird one where you change preset channels and the screen jumps back to the fi
  15. This...and all the leaks on ramtrucks.com...is pushing me to the Tundra. Bulletproof design with bad mpg and boring interior, but at least it’s dry
