    I haven't tried the Dissector but the Assguy is slow as fuck. Definitely the slowest tire I've used. Swap it to a DHF, you'll lose a little grip but it's for sure faster.

    He is asking for a 2nd gen, but those still wheel better than a 2500 event though they're a little big. I guess I forgot than on 2nd gens the "Double Cab" is the extended cab not the crew cab.

    If you are planning to 4wheel around in it (and I would/do with a camper like a 4WC Hawk) then I'd rather have the smaller truck. That's why I have the Access Cab rather than a Double Cab though.
