Good Years "Duratrac A/T"

As soon as I get it back I will post some "After" pics
"Down Town Tire Goodyear" in Cedar Rapids, IA, has it currently ... And I must say, their Customer service, Quality and Price is Top Notch!

Thanks Kik... I really went back and forth on these and a set of "Fuels"... But after I saw these on a silver JKU, I fell in love-

After listening to the annoying squeak coming from my new tire on the stock carrier without bump stops... I did the DIY project that I think turned out amazing for $4 and 1/2 hour of your time....

Took the spare tire off-
Pulled the stock carrier bump stop, walked into Lowes and grabbed a rubber coupling to fit..

A lot cheaper and a lot less headache then taking your chances on the cheap foam "daystar bump stop"

Turned out mint!
