Couple random questions

1.)What have you guys found to be the best tires for mostly on road driving and approximately how many miles are you getting from them?

2.) I was thinking of doing a 6 inch lift and found that the highest i can go would be 37's? Also if anyone has 22" wheels with a 6 inch lift and can post a picture that be awesome.

3.) This ones simple when the truck is "Cleaning Exhaust Filter" is that the regen process?

Delete your truck if you can, and you will not see that message again. Not to mention it will help your fuel economy and add some reliability to the truck.

mostly on-road? convoluted question...

for 100% on road, nitto dura grapplers.. you should see 70k miles out of them..

for 'mostly' on road, as in 70+%, cooper at+3's floggin' rock.. you should see 40K out of them.. nitto terra grapplers are a good second choice, with about the same mileage expectations, just a touch less grip off-road (around here, anyway)..

if you're looking to lift and have an aggressive looking tire with good road manners, dick cepek fun country II radials are hard to beat.. mickyT's have the exact same casing (made by same folks), but a little wider lugs than the fc's.. they seem to wear as good or better than the fc's on the road, but don't grip as well off.. you should get 30~35k miles out of either tire if they are well balanced, rotated, and you have a good alignment.. and good bearings.. for the love of God keep your bearings in check when running a big heavy tire- I ate through a front pair of FC's in about 10k miles because of bearings.. dang it..

just my $0.02..

Search some of my recent posts for pics with 6" lift and 22's. Good combo IMO, I'm very happy with the look. I've run both 35's and 37's and kind of on the fence as to which I like better.

It happens its part of the regen process, the message doesnt just pop up if you go to system check itll be the last thing that shows, and it only lasts for ike 15 minutes,you can tell when its happening barely though your truck will kind of run a little different for that short period of time

The message does pop up every time. It use to stay up the entire time until one of the most recent reflashes. Now it only stays on at the beginning for a few seconds. But it does show up every Regen, I bet you just miss it most times.
