    @marko54 those do look like a very nice tire. Keep us posted on the durability and mileage you get out of them.

    Dropped it off at the body shop to have the rear bumper replaced... courtesy of another driver's insurance. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the 'truckness' of the Sierra 2500HD I got as a rental today.

Gotta wait till night to see how they look but if I go eat lunch with my dad I'll take a picture with his phone as my camera got wet duck hunting in January when I went in the water. Not sure what I want to do with the other 2 LED strips if I want to put them behind the mesh above the speakers in the back not which will require a bit more time which would look sweet. I'll also take a night picture if I can. What is it with me and LEDs all of a sudden? Got some grass to cut later so its another day.

    That last one looks freakin sweat!

    Hey thanks Riley! I think making those lights pulse with the music may just be as simple as connecting them to your speaker wires, but don't hold me to that. I would check around and do some research for sure. Can't wait to see some pictures of them!

    Tried that. Seems there wasn't enought voltage to even make them flicker. Oh well. Waiting for my neighbor to get home so I can take a pic on his Iphone and email it to me and put it up. Don't think it looks bad.

    I picked mine up from the body shop today. I now own a dent-free vehicle for the first time ever. The new bumper looks good.

    I did enjoy the 2011 Sierra 2500HD I got as a rental though - I'd love to have that to replace my F350. It had the tow mirrors on it too... those sure are nice. You can see everything - and that's a good thing because you could lose a full size person behind a truck that tall...

    Thats them. Need to get it right when the light starts fading away to really see the lights clear though or ride in the truck. Still deciding if I want to do the other set in the rear speaker mesh or not.
