Re: Rocky Road Prerunner

I like the clean look of your mod. Could you share what you did to achieve that? How secure are those 2 plastic end pieces, any concern that they could pop off? Great idea using the spacers so you...

Re: Upgrade Shocks for RRO 2.5" Lift

Thanks for the feedback. Costs are on the higher side, but if it will improve handling and stop the excessive shutters from hitting manhole covers, pot holes, highway seams...etc it will be worth it.

Re: 2012 Black WK2

GY Silent Armor, 275/70/18. The rims have a +35 offset, so no spacers needed. Gets snug in the front at full wheel lock but no rubbing. Plenty of space in the back.

Re: 2012 Black WK2

No, not too bad. The tire cover causes most of the noise as there are many rips. With the sunroof closed, you really cant hear much.
