3600 on my front........its a fat girl.


are they any better initial drive impression over the old tires?...or can you remember that far back?


for summer use i run the military tires primarily...and shredded quite a few sets.

i am on my second or maybe 3rd...set of yoko i/t winter tires...and those are magnitudes better then the military oz.


my 42's are whooped so the 40 in nittos are on the radar. but damn they are not easy on the wallet.

Nice ranger.
Driving your rig on the street i would carry two driveshafts for the rear. Swapping them out before riding sucks but will save you on the ride home.

I will probably retube my old shaft for like 5th time and keep it as a spare. This new shaft has a slightly smaller diameter tube, so that may help save it some in the rocks.

These are smoother on the road than the Kevlar MTRs ever were, even when they were brand new. I should get some off-road miles on then here in the next couple weeks, but all I know so far is the sidewall feels bulky in a good way, and they do donuts in the dirt real nice.

He shredded 3 of the military tires. I am very glad we didnít run them too far on the road, they seemed to just disintegrate, they were old though.

Wow I havenít heard of anyone that has lost a bead on the street with single beadlocks like that, but that has always been my fear. I looked at the BAD wheels and I contacted Hutchinson because those were my #1 wheels I wanted to get, but I just canít swing them in the budget right now. Thanks for the honest info about blowing a bead, I feel like most people are fine on the street on beadlocks, but wouldnít say if they ever had an issue.

I can't stand the enhanced mobile thing and I'm mostly on desktop anyway so that splains my problem.

Your weight has me curious how heavy my 5.0L Bronco II is. My tan one weighs right at about 3,900 lbs. with ~2100 lbs. on the front and ~1,800 lbs. on the rear, but the 5.0L one seems a bit heavier on the trailer.

The tire damage looks familiar I did the same thing to my old MT/Rs the last time I ran Narrows. One guy in the group put a hole in the side of one of his brand-new sticky Trepadors.
