New Shoes

I just had the Nitto MT Grapplers put on, does anyone know about how long these beast will last? It is my daily driver with trails and mud, no rock climbing.

You didn't consider their relative longevity before buying them?

And it IS relative. Put a set on a redneck teenager's Jeep and a conservative granny's Jeep...betcha the granny's will last longer.

My guess is 40K.

Lol...soon!

I used to think sports car tires were bad...

Your Jeep looks great, though.

They are very heavy, but surprisingly not as loud as I thought they would be.

What size are those tires?

You might wanna look into one of these, to make sure the heavier tire/wheel combo doesn't break the welds in your tailgate. If those are 33" tires or so, this should work fine.

Smittybilt Part 2743 - Oversized Tire Carrier by Smittybilt for Jeep
I was thinking the same thing. Looking at the pic of his spare, they are 295/70/18s. Those suckers are 74lbs a piece. Definitely some heavy tires. Look great though.

The bars are simply the spacers that hold the tire carrier together, and to give the whole thing more rigidity...they're adjustable, so you can put smaller or larger tires on em. You can also adjust your third taillight so it can be seen over your larger tire (keeps The Man from hassling you).

I've got one on my Jeep right now, holding my 35" tire. That's too much tire for it, however. In the Spring I'm gonna put on an OR-FAB tire carrier, which mounts using the tailgate hinge pins.

Uhhh...don't remember. Most likely I wrote down the mfr part #, and plugged it into Amazon, Quadratec, that site, and half a dozen others, then picked the one with the lowest price and/or free shipping.

4wd IS pretty awesome, though.

You can also PM any of the forum vendors...if they carry it they'll give you a good deal, and probably free shipping, as well.
