    The issue is those radios aren't comparable to each other. They each have their own place and I have a place for ALL of them right now!!!! :confused:

    I do understand that. I'm having the same issue with the falken tire's; reg at3w's and add new TPMS or the LT's 11.3 lbs heavier $37 more or keep the laredos buy another set of used rim's and put falken MT's on and switch around as needed. It's almost enough to make me pull my hair out but i'm already bald on top.

    I can offer my experience...

    When I had my Cherokee, I had one set of wheels with some mild ATs on them and another set with some aggressive MTs on them. I finally got very tired of swapping wheels all the time and just stuck with the MTs and sold the ATs.

    I've heard of many almost-MT tires that are just as quiet on the road as a AT (if rotated regularly) that have great performance in most conditions.

    I myself evaluated my actual use and decided that that Cooper Discoverer AT3 would suit my needs and so far I've been very happy with them. The Falken AT3Ws do equally as well, a friend uses them and we've both been very satisfied.

    At the end of the day, I don't have to worry about going home to swap tires if I should decide to do some exploring or jump in with a group I encounter. Just air down and hit the trail. What the tires won't handle, I have a winch for....

    East Coast trails are just too tight! I had a 84 K5 Blazer on 35s, double locked and flat bellied but couldn't ever get the wife to travel in it. I looked for a slightly better body I could get the A/C and cruise going on but the flat-billers have driven old truck prices through the roof!!!

    Forgive me Father. It has been twelve months since I last bought a daily. I am now bored of my daily (accord, v6, 6spd) beater and I am wanting a new daily. Please give me strength and your blessing to carry on the annual ritual of "getting a new daily".

    I drive 32 miles one way to work (self inflicted, easy commute) and I used to daily the X, but 4wd first gens are not the most highway friendly cars. So I have always kept a beater around for highway travel.


    I am currently evaluating my vehicular possessions.

    I have never driven a modified 1st gen so I can't comment on that. My 2nd gen has great road manners. The math has never worked out for me for a beater DD. Partly because I can't own something and not modify it in some way....

    That struggle is REALLY real. Starts with a bluetooth radio and goes from there. Luckily all my DDs are just cash cars. In my head it works out because it keeps miles off my truck and gets twice (typically) as good fuel mileage. I should probably get one beater, fix all the quirks and drive the wheels off. But wheres the fun in that?

    I think you can get Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN + for 12.99 on a month. There’s some kind of bundle like that

    I was looking at that too. Just that version of Hulu has ads which drive me nuts. Also, regular hulu is $1.99 a month right now. Again, with ads.


    I can usually find whatever I want to watch through various means, but Im thinking this might be a good plan.

    I don't think 1st gens are all that bad on the highway with a few exceptions. The worst part in my experience is getting getting behind a big rig then my X starts swaying back and forth. I don't think my gas gauge can keep up with my fuel consumption. It definitely did not help things when I added the heavy ass cooper stt pros and steel wheels.

    Something got one of the rabbit hutches open and killed one of the rabbits. My daughter is blaming the pup but I don't think she could work the latch of the door.

    This is the type of latch that is on there

    I'm curious on the economic devastation. Lowest unemployment in years and record highs on the DOW. But, ok.

    My in-laws are wanting me to let them know what I want for Christmas but I don't even know. My wife was quizzing me about it and I told her "I don't sit around and look for stuff for myself". I need some ideas for $20 or less.
