Yesterday I installed the Rola roof rack. New Firestick CB antenna arrived today, so that will get attched to the rear of the rack tomorrow.

They ride great. Road noise is very obvious (not bad though) but I had a lifted truck on 33's before this so im used to it. They feel less wobbly than the 215/60 harmony i had on before and acceleration doesnt really seem to be any worse.
They look great too!

Funny you mention about having 3 tires, what a headache I got from a local discount tire with my tires. NEVER AGAIN!!

Might be easier to handle the wiring with new aftermarket heaters.

Well, my Foz already has heated seats so the wiring and switches are already there, just need the heating pads and associated wiring that goes to the harness for the car.

Had my winter tires mounted and balanced. Filled with nitrogen so shouldn't have to worry psi fluctuations with temp or elevation changes. Now just wishing for lots of snow here in Colorado or Montana when I drive there for the holiday.

Took the beater in for a safety inspection. Licence plate lights were out and the tie rods were deemed "too sloppy".
I've installed my set of LED licence bulbs I scored at DGM'13 courtesy of Diode Dynamics and got ready to swap the tie rods off my old FXT steering rack.

The weather is a little cold but I'll get them swapped out soon enough. I'll install the $5 O2 fix and the new knock sensor as soon as it shows up.
