Took it out for the first time since I got it. Had a good time, didn't get stuck, and didn't break anything, which was good since I went alone....

Same tires on my Jeep!!!!!! I have 5,000 on them with no signs of wear. They sling mud good!

All in all, I'm happy with them.

31x10.50x15's....

Yeah, I had these on a previous truck, wish I would've kept the wheels & tires when I sold it.
After brief stint with some Kuhmo Road Ventures (which I found rather underwhelming- scary standing water on road performance and deplorable wear pattern: nearly 60% wear after religious 5 tire rotations every 3k miles), I decided to go back to a tire I know has solid all-around performance at an honest price.

Just brought her home from the new RC 3.25 inch lift install. Post pics tomorrow. I'm thinking my 31x10.50's need to go on steroids though.

Finally got the bolts off, fixed the one on the rubber stop that sheared off. Bedlined the bumpers, and got some hooks on her for starters...on to the tow bar...

Nice. I was considering one of those, but 2 of my dogs got into a fight today and the vet bill was 352.00, so that kills that idea for a while

Had a mysterious squealing noise coming from under the hood. Just finished replacing the idler pulley and the squealing stops. It's a March 3rd Miracle!!
