Not worth it as I've done new exhaust that tucks up to the body now and I'd have to re-do it. I'm content to whine about tire prices.

You asked about the gap liners, it is way cheaper making your own. Go to Lowe's/ Home Depot and look in the carpet section. They sell 3 foot wide rubber runner by the foot.

For your front, remove the stock ones and use them as a pattern to cut new taller ones. For the rear, if you really want them there, just cut them to cover the area and screw it into the pinch weld (that is how the pre made ones attach also).

Awesome! So that's definitely what I'm going to do then is the body lift and steering shaft extension, then make my own liners. I should be placing my order Friday (payday) so when it all gets in and I get my tires in I will install everything. I haven't seen a write up for the DIY liners, if there isn't one I will definitely get one going!!

Any advice on the Fierce Attitudes? Thumbs up or thumbs down? Any tire you would recommend for wet/snow weather but still have a little pull in the mud?

Thanks for all the responses so far!!

I'm pretty sure Fierce is Goodyear's cheaper line of "performance" tires. I have never seen any or heard anything about them.
