I've got 6400 miles on my KMs and I'm down to 17/32". Not sure if that's good, regular, or bad.

My JK Sport came with the less aggressive ATs. I bought a set of 17x7.5" OEM wheels on eBay so I mounted the ATs on them. Today I'll be taking my KMs off and putting the ATs on for summer wheeling. It's been my experience that ATs are sufficient just about anything in the GWNF.

3.73s, also. I plan on doing a lot of deep snow wheeling with chains this coming year so I'm going with 4.88 or 5.13. I'll probably go with 4.88 though.

I should have my lift installed by this time next week...

Anyone else getting trail scars?

Gladi8r Terry when r u going to post some photos?
05-20-2013 11:10 AM
Jack Burton Glad you guys had fun...really wish I could have made this trip. RC is awesome.

I ended up camping at the Cove Campground in Gore VA. 1.5 hours from Leesburg. That place was a blast.

They have 4WD trails but they were reserved for a Virginia 4WD association private event. I stuck my nose down a couple of trails. They left their articulation ramp out though so I gave it a try.

Gladi8r Terry let's see some photos...

It was a lot of fun! That last trail was awesome. We got back around 2315. Needless to say, I passed out as soon as my head hit the pillow!
