High Pressure LT Valves add $19.96
Chrome Sleeve Valve Stem add $15.96
2 in. Steel Valve Stem add $19.96
Do not install stem valves on my tires

Stick with standard rubber stems which will flex instead of break/crack like a steel or chrome-covered stem will do if it runs into an obstacle while offroading. Not to mention you're not running high pressure in your tires so no special high pressure valve stem is necessary either.

Buy a couple extra rubber tire stems and tire stem valves too and throw them into your box of spares.

When you have a choice, buy American.

So I got the STTs mounted today 32 11.5 15s
I'll post a pic tomorrow, and will provide some driving/ wear reports in the next several months.
They seem as quiet or quieter than the BFG MTs that I replaced.

Also, when they were replacing the tires, they noted that there was some gear oil on the rear drums, leaking axle seals on the D44. They quoted me $177 to replace the seals, and up the gear oil, 2.5 hours labor, few $ for the seals and oil. I saw Stu's write-up on doing this work, and it looks like you need a press to do the work. Should I attempt the seal job myself, or pay the $177? I don't have access to a press. Comments, thoughts, anyone done this before? Thx!
