Well, I used to always say to my friends "I'll never own a truck unless it's for work"...

It's for work, but along with my DR650 - it is my mode of transport. Being a fossil fuel enthusiast, anything I own normally gets modified, so let the journey begin.

2011 Frontier SE KC - 4cyl 5spd 2wd. Shipped from Ontario (family member owned it) to Vancouver, where I recently moved from Calgary. Luckily, the truck is a bit bigger than a fleet tacoma / ranger etc, so why not have some fun with it.

Before the truck arrived I purchased a rough country 2.5f/1.5r lift and wanted to grab some fresh rubber for it. Seeing as it's only a 2wd and a 4 banger, something slightly bigger than stock but still relatively small seemed logical. I opted for some 265/75/16 Hercules Terra Trac AT2. Price was right, and so far they've performed great on wet roads and some minor gravel treks down Forestry Service Roads.

Prior to the lift, I was a little concerned with the sizing, but they ended up fitting like a charm. The power is weak as per usual, but haven't noticed any additional loss due to increased wheel weight, the lift, etc. Anyhow - not sure what I'd like to do next, power is out of the question because, well, it's hopeless. So keeping it light and perhaps mounting some auxiliary lights and a bed cover of some sort seem logical!

Cheers and thank you for all of the resources thus far!


Still fresh...

This could be better

Hercules Terra Trac AT2 265/75/16 beside stock tires.

2.5" Front, 1.5" Rear (Shackles) Lift with 265/75/16, the lift has resulted in very minor positive front camber - soon to be adjusted with alignment.

Not bad!

Thanks for looking!
