Let us know how that trail is. That one has too much highway for me for just 17 miles of trail. I have been driving close to 500 miles every week up and back to Tonopah so I would rather have the ratio reversed a little. You guys enjoy yourselves.

Decided on Rubicon Express standard 3.5 inch and Nitto Terragrapplers 295-70-18s so that I can keep the stock wheels.

Do you still have to run spacers with the sahara wheels? I have a combined 35k miles on my spacers without an issue.

Yes on the spacers. Glad to hear that you haven't had any issues, that was my concern when I was trying to decide on using the stock wheels. They were one of the reasons that we bought an Altitude, so I didn't really want to replace so early.

Just use the red loctite and torque them. Every other tire rotation I recheck the torque @ 10 ftlbs under the original torque value. I have never had a single one loose. I also never let anyone rotate my tires either... they are way too happy with the impact gun for aluminum.
