I got Nitto Ridge Grapplers installed on my Ram 2500 Mega on Friday. Went with 35x12.5 20. They look great, very smooth on the road so far and nice and quiet. Haven't had them off road or in snow or anything yet, but pretty happy so far.

Also installed new steering setup so I am working on getting the alignment dialed in now. It is solid front axle so the only thing I really changed was the toe. Trying some home brew methods to get it zeroed, if I can get it there it will save me some alignment money, think I am pretty close now.
Getting my truck ready for winter as well, replaced the receiver hitch and antenna last week as they were both rusted corroded messes, got the fluid film on there, next up it putting my new wheels and tires on, that will probably have to wait until the weekend though.

Got a new frame, leaf springs and rear shocks, and steering rack over the summer, next up is and AAL, new rear bumper and new front shocks and coils. Slowly replacing/upgrading everything on this truck.

Yep I'm going to see a couple inches from this. The yard truck has the plow on it to keep the yard accessible (if needed)

Just enough to cover my back deck last night late, but by this morning, all gone and turned to rain. Guess I can call that the first official snow? Hmmmm.

Every year, I get excited about the first real dumping of snow- then am quickly reminded that I can only go as quickly as the dumbest driver out there, running bald summer tires.

You'd think people in snowy climates would be smarter than that, but I guess not. Canada requires everyone to have snow tires on for the season, maybe the MVC's of snow states should require snow tires, or all seasons with 50% tread left for the vehicle to pass inspection....I saw at least 5 cars last night on sidewalks because we had a dusting....their bald tires just had zero grip. Stupid tards.
