Well, for those of you that give a damn :)flipoff2: ), I ordered my new tires yesterday and they may be here by this weekend.

Finally sold my Michelin XL's (just too big for my pansy DII-:rolleyes: ), and I'm going with the Swamper TSL Severe Service (?) 9x34 bias ply.

I know, I know, but these are my "weekend shoes", and I'll keep my Yoko's for the daily stuff.

I've got a set of radius arms that I'm lengthening by 1" (both front and rear) to help keep the tires out of the trailing edge of the front fenders and the rear doors. I'll take some shots once they arrive.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.:)

Nice choice, I run those myself. But really it is the orange wheels that get it done.:flipoff2:

Jeff, how do you like 'em, and what pressures do you run on the street and trails? Got a side view showing the diameter?

As far as pressure, 'full' on the road, 'kinda squishy' on the trail. On a 2 day trip on the rubicon I aired down on day one and did fine, but after having things cool off overnight, when we started out the next morning,I was leaking air due to cold rubber not sealing as well, so I aired back up to 'a little squishy'. The suck on the road, so if you have more than 100 miles to the trial, bring them and put them on at the trail head. Oh and they take a few minutes to warm up and become round after sitting overnight. Other than that I think they are great.

I've been running them on my series for 3-4 years now. I like them alot ( at least on the series ). They are not as loud as TSL's I had on the FC101 or as loud as the boggers on the D90.

They do slow the poor beast down a bit ( 2 1/4 liter ) Going up the 3150 ft steep climb to my home :D But they are great in the dirt, rock and snow!

Greg!....

I'm disappointed in you! Everytime I shed my plan on slapping the 37"s under the Disco I keep telling them "no I am not mad...some other nut in the US is going it....and to a DII"...

Guess now I am all alone in this...
Well, to get you updated, here is what is coming:
1. RTE 2" Body Lift already home
2. One package from down under: Rangie Spares Flares, Maxi Drive stuff, Strange Rover's front bushes to be ordered shortly
3. 2 sets of wheels await me: 15x8, 15x10 (going to see which one fits the bill)
4. Four 37" MTR at home

Will be assembling everything (+ cage, bumpers, sliders...) by end June...so still researching anything i need...

34"s!!!...:eek:

Greg,

Did you get gears yet, or are you still running the stock ones?

I cant wait to hear how tires fit, I just added 4.10’s and lockers to the DII last weekend and what a difference, but I need to add some taller rubber to get the RPM’s down some since they are at 3300 @ 75MPH!

Nadim, sorry to let you down, But just remember, MTR's run small. So your 37"s are really only 35's.:flipoff2:

Dave, still running the stock gears, but will be upgrading REAL soon. Also plan on installing GBR rear shafts, and for the front I've got a set of spare shafts that I'm looking into getting cryo'd, since I don't know of any aftermarket sets for the front.

I'm also lengthening a set of radius arms to get the tires away from my sliders and rear door. I'll keep you posted.

Greg...:flipoff2:

Thanks for blowing my candles out...:D ...anyways, I know they run small, but they "should" stay at 36+. If not, I'm ditching them. They will be a rare tire in Lebanon, so they can sell in a second! If they run small, I'm off to Grooved 36SXs! No peer pressure though!:rolleyes:
