    I have re-placed or refurbished just about everything on the running gear and engine/transmission and fitted a set of Micky Thomson ATZ P3's on 16 inch wheels and fitted a heavy duty set of front and rear rotors and pads.
    I service the truck every 5,000k's
    As long as the D2's are well maintained they handle really well (even without ACE), The stock rotors and pads are pretty woeful though.
    They excel on beach work and are a pleasure to drive on the highway.
    Brilliant! I think I need to get everything looked at by JC pre-Christmas, if I can get it in at this time of year. Fingers crossed.

    That's great, but have you then compared to one with ACE?
