    There will be a bunch of L4P peeps stopping by the RDB shop around 9am tomorrow morning before heading out for the run. You guys are welcome to come and join us, even if it is to stop by at the shop before we head out.

    1st weekend thoughts:

    Thought I had brought my camera to work, but turns out I left it at home. Anyway, the tires are awesome! Have been receiving comments on them left and right! Even my wife says that the new tires look like they were made for the car. Driveability is not lost and there are no signs of rubbing at regular height. When you lower the vehicle (at access height) the tires will rub when hitting bumps, turning into lots and etc.). I think the tires accentuate the step lip of the Hamann's, as they were mostly an afterthought with the 285/35/22 tires. Will post better pics after I detail the car and get my camera back.

    I love it! Throw a roof rack and some lights on that thing, and it'll look seriously burly.

    I've been wanting to throw a roof rack on it, but I'm just worried that I'll hit a lot of ceilings and overhanging objects when going into parking structures.

    Well, the average parking garage entrance is 6'-8" to 7' (rarely 6'-6"). Measure your truck at normal ride height and see if you've got a few inches to spare for a roof rack. Urban Offroad could easily build a custom low-profile rack with an LED bar and low side "walls."

    With the expedition rack (excluding the tire, obviously) I can fit into garages that say 7'0"... but barely.

    Ordered both the side steps and roof rack, but the roof rack was damaged during shipping and now I have to look for another one. I had just spent a lot of time at the malls for Christmas shopping, and I'm really wondering if the roof rack would even fit inside a lot of these parking garages in LA. I think some of the garages I do go inside of may be lower than the standard 7".

    I'll post pics once the steps are installed.
