    Yea, currently have the ST Max in 255/85/16. They are sized small, not even 33" and a bit wider (32.8" x 10.2"). Getting the Discoverer ST put on this weekend. Had them in 255/85/16 before the Max and liked them. They are a true tall and skinny (33.2" x 10").

    Appreciate the offer, I've had a 255/85/16 spare for awhile now. Gave away my second spare last year to free up garage space.

    New tires went on last Friday. Put 255/85/16 Cooper Discoverer ST back on. It's crazy how the ST vs ST Max differ between the same size tires. The ST are much skinnier, it's going to take some getting used to for looks. The difference between the E rated (ST Max) and D rated (ST) is quite noticeable. The truck rides a lot better with a D rated tire.

    One step closer to a RTT. RCI bed rack installed. I like it, was easy to put on. Not too impressed with the powder coating though.

    Will make a nice elevated shooting stand when the RTT is not on it.

    Looks good. Can you get to your ammo cans up front?

    Man, they've been there since I bought the truck. I can still access them, but can't open the lid and let it rest open. The bigger issue is my CB antenna that's been mounted in the same place for the last 5-6 years. I'll need to move it, else risk excess rub into the rack when going through trees.

    Yeah with my rack (which is a few inches taller than yours it appears) getting under there to access the tool box is a PITA. I want to build a new one a few inches taller.

    I liked the idea of lower profile. We'll see if I still like it after the first year.

    I agree.. I like the lower profile.. its just hard to get under it.

    Going to be getting a pair of Maxtrax wannabes and water and gas Rotopax to mount on the exterior of the rack.
