    tires are good, 2nd winter on them good tread wear so far, not comparable to a winter tread, but good all season all terrain. just trying see what good PSI would be, tried 45 and spins to much, so dropped to 36psi for now.. About 400lbs ballast on rear end by tailgate, and plow is 750lbs, thinking my get better traction with another 200lbs, but hard to tell, snow is real heavy mixed with rain, good thing plow hydraulics aint superman power, lifting snow would knock a Chinese guy in his homeland... with bumper going for a dive lol

    Hella makes some really nice stuff for this truck. LED taillights Blackout HeadLight and a Grill with 2 Driving lights. The trucks looks really good now but I think with the LED tails and the black housing head lights it would look great. Check em out.

    look at different supply shops for rubber conveyor belt roughly 3/8" of an inch, 8 inches wide and 90" long..
    that is the size i have... and make sure you get a thin piece of flat bar to sandwhich the deflector..
