Anyone seen or heard anymore updates on the baja prox? I talked to Scott GoForth, and he thinks its the king of stickys for south east rides, he recommended them for my 1 ton equipped TJ. Im just not 100% sold on them yet. I wheel in TX, OK, and AR for the most part. So I don't think the 39 reds are my best ticket, and don't want to run a 20 so that throws the 42 red out. But im having a heck of time figuring out if to go with treps 40 or 42, 43 sx or baja pro x 43. All tires are extremely close in price, with treps actually being the cheapest by just a little. Quick run down of my rig, TJ on built 1 tons, rcv, full hydro, linked on ORI's. Stock 4.0/ax15 with atlas t case. I just sold my Irok 42's and wanting something a little better.

im sure you DGAF what i have to say but IMO you will be happy with any of those choices, the new MT prox are so new theres not really going to be much in the way of reviews for them. maybe try posting over on hardline crawlers forum too, they might have some people that have them

So you think I should just go with what I can get the cheapest? baja pro x and 43 sx are both 690 a piece.
I can get 42 treps for 650 or 40s for 600, can get used ultra 4400 pull off trep 40s much cheaper then that. Ill look over at hardline and see if they have anything going on.

I think any of those would be good for where you're wheeling. I'm in OK, and primarily wheel the same areas as you- TX, OK, AR. In my group, we have 37" and 39" Reds, 40" and 42" Treps. We all get around just fine, and without any issues. Yes, Reds have "softer" sidewalls. Have we seen cuts? Yep. But they stick to anything. I'm going to move from 40" Treps to a 42" at sometime in the near future. I'm still debating between keeping my wheels and going to 42" Treps, or going to a 20" wheel and 42" Reds.

They are big nasty bitches, and heavy as hell. (I’m 6’1” as a size comparison for those who haven’t seen these things in person yet.)

Are they a west coast dry rock tire? I don’t think so, y’all run bologna skins out there haha. For back east and the northwest I’d say they are pretty sweet. Would love a 40” for the non Rockwell’d rigs.
