This looks a whole lot like another tire they've been selling for a year or so...the Mastercraft Courser MTX. Those are actually a fairly lightweight tire with great reviews.

I've run three sets of the KO and two sets of the General AT2 (very similar tread pattern) and all of them sucked in the snow. And on wet trails...forget about it. Rainy roads...not bad when the...

P rated has higher load capacity than LT-C rated, is lighter, has a mileage warranty, and is cheaper to buy. This is typically true of ALL tires though.

I still think the Cooper AT3 is the most...

The KO2 is not a hybrid. They slightly changed the outer tread blocks to be a little more likely to evacuate mud and snow and rain. However, the center tread patch tightened up a bit. Put a KO and...

Excellent place to camp and especially take a kid. Lots of great camping sites, and some are even on the shore of KY Lake. The trails are as easy as you want or as wild as you want. There is...

Yeah the '10 also had the old style Tupperware interior too. I'd shop around. Lots of NICE ones out there for under $25K with factory warranty left on them.

Pretty impressive considering the KO2 is wider, taller, heavy as hell, and has high rolling resistance. Most people see a huge decrease in fuel economy with BFG all-terrains. Have you been hand...

Mine had pretty bad road force balance numbers and they replaced one of them. Once they finally got them to balance somewhat decent they were good. They are loud on the road. And they are heavy. ...

I personally think the Cooper STT is a good tire for what you're describing. Mine would bite really hard in the mud and clay but they have sipes in the blocks so they aren't horrible in snow. I...

A lot has changed since the YJ/TJ. The engines don't suck anymore. No more boat anchors under the hood. You can talk to the person riding with you now. No more hearing protection when traveling...

Goodforayear tires are hard to balance and have thin sidewalls. But, those thin sidewalls reduce weight which saves $$$ on the pavement. And most guys are 95% or more pavement if they actually add...

Just fyi... yes I did pass on that Jeep. The dealer sent it to a Jeep dealership to be "repaired". I called that dealership on my own while the Jeep was there to see what they were going to do to...

I'm not saying I would avoid the 3.6. All I'm saying is if I already had a 3.8 I wouldn't get rid of it just for the 3.6 upgrade.

My 3.8 didn't burn a drop of oil. It did have a ticking...

I agree that the Rubicon isn't for everybody. 4:1 low range would get annoying in a hurry unless you're playing in a rock garden.

Interesting to see all the opinions on Wrangler engines.

I've owned two 4.0s, one 3.8, and two 3.6s. The 4.0 is garbage. Yes, I said it. It's garbage. It's a boat anchor. In 1990 it was the...

^^ This exactly. The 42RE trans in the 07-11 SUCKS. The W580 in the 12-15 isn't great either but at least it has slightly better ratios.

The 3.6L is a little stronger on the top end. In normal...

Coolant gone, sludge on cap

I looked at another 2012 model today. Very clean and well cared for specimen. Has around 55,000 miles on it. However, when I popped the hood I noticed the coolant bottle was empty. Hmmm.. I...

My biggest complaint is that the price goes up 3% annually, even though it's the most stone simple and unequipped vehicle they build. The Wrangler is quickly getting out of control, pricewise.

Why not? The 2017 Jeep JL Wrangler is likely going to IFS according to inside sources.

This vehicle would be great competition...maybe Wranglers would stop increasing in price 3% annually.
