    Well it wasn't today but about a week ago I got my new tires put on. I went with General Grabber ATX's in 265/70/17. Still on the factory wheels for now. Hopefully in a few months I'll be getting TRD Pro wheels (black). I went with the Generals because they were rated #2 out of 29 all terrain tires on Tirerack.... and because I have a friend who works at the Continental tire plant who got me 40% off. I had just found out that Generals are made by Continental. They retail for almost $700 before taxes and I paid $437 taxes included. As far as the tires go I love them. When I had them put on they had a pretty bad vibration at about 60 mph but I took them back and they rebalanced them. I think they road forced at least two of them. Now they ride great, smooth and quiet. Not quite as smooth and quiet as the Geolander street tires that came off, but close. They only negative I have found is if I don't drive it every day they get flat spotted a little bit and the first mile or so down the road is kinda bumpy. Then they smooth right out. And they look great on the runner. No rubbing either.

    Took the RTT off the Tundra and put it on the MP Cruiser for the first time. Love the look of the Gobi but holy hell putting a RTT on it is a pain in the arse.

    After looking at some of these posts, it is evident I am such a newb. Over the last couple of days I have done the following to my 2007 SR5: changed oil/filter (Mobil 1 Gold Cap), new iridium Denso plugs, new wiper blades, replaced front pads/rotors, and installed new roof rack end caps. I'm not much into mods. To me, it's all about preventative maintenance. I bought it new and it now has 170K miles. I still love this vehicle. I look forward to taking it to 300K and beyond. I have friends asking when I'm gonna get a new car. Why? This one runs just as good as the day I bought it.

    Due to the new tire/rim setup I got a BMC chop from The Truck Shop in San Diego, also modded the TPMS.

    Now time to test out the new setup on some trails.
