the truck had 270 gallons of heating oil in the tote and 50ish gallons of WMO. total of 320 gallons so it equals to approximately 2,500 lbs sitting in the bed and the truck handled it pretty well.

My summer Christmas!

Almost have everything I need/want to start the swap! Still need differential cover gasket, wheel bearing grease, diff lube, 35 spline side gears, more rtv, and buy some cheap center caps to try cut hole in it for the hubs for factory look.

Left to right: 265/70R17 BFG Rugged Trail with approx half tread (stock off a 2006 ram 2500). 285/75R16 BFG All-Terrain worn out. 295/70R17 Hankook Dynapro ATM brand new. The new tire measures perfectly 33" tall. If my old BFG A/T have 100% treads, it'll be close as tall.

On my way to home for the winter break, one of my old tire had a major failure. I believe it's belt(s) broke so it bulged.

Lucky I already planned to get new tires the following week.
