But she didn't leave me stranded either. Power drop nearby to the house and we hobbled home. New one purchased, headed out soon to get it taken care of. Wish me luck that she starts and I don't have to jump start her off the impala.

Most of us usually get together over the weekends. Sundays have the been the best day so far. Maybe something before the new year but probably not as everyone is with family and plans are on made on the spot if you know what I mean.

MAN!!! I just got caught up on this thread & I am SO upset I did not make it. I was all set to go the night before, but got stuck with a sick little girl Sunday ;(

Great pics & vid Jude! I hate I missed you, Shell, & the others, as well as, getting to meet all the other folks that went. Judging by the pics it was way more mud than when I went there. Looks like you guys had a BLAST!

Billy, sorry your little girl was sick. I hope she is feeling better for Christmas! I figured something must have happened when we couldn't get a hold of you.

It was SOOOO much more mud than the trip you went on. Your YJ prolly would have had a great time though!

You need a lift before you get #3 on your list!

I know their only making those in sizes bigger than 255 currently but what are they gonna do since they are replacing the KM1? They only make the original in that size so are they gonna stop doing that and then up the stock sizes on all shipped rubis?

I meant, if you are gonna get new tires, get the lift, then get bigger tires! I bought a 4 inch lift for mine that I will be putting on next month when my tires I have now are worn out!

It seems like the KM1s are getting pretty cheap online right now and I've been reading how they are being discontinued. I also just read about a guy that bought the KM2s and went mudding only to find his did not shed mud like they are advertised. BFG said that the new ones are supposed to do this better than the older ones and also wear more evenly for longer tread life than the KM1s?

Yeah I hear ya. I don't think a lift is ever in my future but if I could find a way to afford 4x new 255/75/17 BFG MTs as the same size I have now, I would probably go for it.

These were the kinds of things I was planning BEFORE I met up with the CORF/WF folks

Should be pretty simple to find if you check CL and all the forums. I got mine for $550 for a set of 5 with TPMS and rims. I then sold my stock SRA's for $300 so they really only cost me $250.

What's your current MPG on those tires and wheels? If you still have them I suppose.

At least I went to get my jeep dirty.

Pics are on my FB. I was waiting for Keith to share on here, since they took them.

Yeah, I knew better than to go in that pit with my slick-a$$ all terrains...but I couldn't help myself!

MTs are in my immediate future, like within the next 2 weeks.

ugh...I'm jealous. I love not filling up 2x a week but I think I miss getting in my jeep every day and seeing those sick treads in my rear view mirror.

Well, I have to get tires...the tread is really low on the current ones. I wanted to be able to move up to 35" MTs when these wore out, but the regearing is not in the current Jeep mod account. I am compromising and putting the Mts on her, but staying on 33s until I can afford the regearing to be done right.

Ya know I like your Jeep with 33's on it. It looks fantastic and with the MTs your surely going to be able to do all the off roading you want to!

Thanks, Jude. But you didn't see her when she was on 35s.

The MTs WILL make all the difference for Selma though, I think.

Thanks, Keith.

My girl may have had her first yank outta the mud help, but I would do it again in a heartbeat. I don't drive all the way down there to come back clean!
