Being indecisive.. I need help picking out new shoes for her. I've debated on Dick Cepek Mud Country tires, Firestone Destination M/T. I want a nice, loud, mud tire, but now I'm finding myself not liking either of them again.. Feel free to tell me to look anything I'm looking for. Thanks.

How much are 33x12.5 Nittos? I tried looking them up but found two extremely different prices.

I have some Enduro Runway M/Ts I really like em, they ride good. That noise will get old after a while. These are quite too to be a mud tire.

Put in grill inserts a couple of days ago...



Today me and a buddy mounted some new sliders and painted part of the doors with bedliner. I'll have to take a picture tomorrow as it was too dark for one by the time we finished.

Raining hard in Tucson, and since I cant fit my TJ in the garage, I had to put off changing the trans fluid and transfercase.. Prob put it off for next week and hit the mud in the washes today.. Man I miss Michigan mud... Good luck on your Sunday project all.

There is a recovery contact thread in the nj section on this forum and or pm me if ya wanna exchange info. I was doing a timing chain in my wife's mini cooper and would have much rather come to the pines to help.
