Hi everyone. I'm originally from Louisiana and moved to Tucson in January of this year. Last week I traded in my 2wd 2012 Avalanche White X for a 2012 Metallic Blue S trimmed X in 4x4. I joined the forum to check out some of the mods you folks have done to your Xs. So far I've only added a receiver hitch and a set of Cooper ATPs but now that I have x4 I hope to do a few more mods like a slight lift, skids and a few more things to get me a little further down the trails. I'm enjoying the heck out of y'alls postings and pics. Keep em coming!

I like them a lot, TeguTerra. For me, they were a great improvement over the BFG Long Trail TAs which came on both of my Xs from the factory. And might I say those BFGs DO NOT like rocks at all!! My last outing over near portal saw two flats along one road. Blah! That's terrible odds for a fairly well maintained road!

So I read some reviews about the ATPs regarding vibration and such at varying/high speeds but I have not had any issues with them up to ca. 80mph. So far they do pretty darn well as an on/off tire for a daily commuter as well as on moderately maintained rocky roads like Reddington Pass with no issues whatsoever.

I have to fly out on Sunday for work but if something with CANVAZ is going on Friday afternoon/Saturday I might come check it out. I'll dig around on the forums for some info on it.

Yes, but depends on which X you saw?! ;) I was up last weekend at ASU campus then stopped in on South Mountain for a short hike, but did it in the white 2wd, not the blue 4x4 in my profile pic. Then last Friday with ticket in hand, I totally bailed on going to see the DBacks and Cards play...all to go climb Redington Pass and explore the east side of the mntns in the new blue X. Priorities. ;D ;D ;D

Yeah. Not far from you at all. Our office is along Anklam next to Pima West.

Rusty's sounds good. I haven't visited that place since moving back. Last time I was there was a couple years back. Good beers to be had at Dragoon too if you're ever down for a quick stop in there one thurs/fri afternoon after work.

Wow your right around the corner. Right now I'm out of the country till Nov. I have not been to Dragoon but its right across the street from me. I'm sure you'll see me around I'm in a lifted silver X with a snorkel driving like i stole it. If you see it feel free to stop me.

Remo, Glanced at your ride on the garage pages. Very nice! I am picturing it with the snorkel you mentioned.

I'm on my 8th or 9th week of travel, mostly east/gulf coast projects so only fighting 2 to 3 hour timezone differences but I can sympathize. Scheduling some PTO in Nov/Dec so hopefully run into you then. Safe travels.
