Hmm doesn't sound like something I need. Where I would be wheeling mostly it's dirt trails and mud holes but there is a sang part and since it's on the river we get out on the sand bars. Im still not set on tires I want...I got time though ... Still gotta save up money and plus to start with a buddy is giving me some mixed and matched tires that h has on his samurai to start me out with...I'm just happy to have them when I get lifted (will b about a month, gotta replace my trans) but it's something to start with...just kinda startin to stock pile on parts. Takin what I can get for cheap or free...

Best way to do it sabzz, mate. The tires are good for mud and rocks too, plenty of grip and loads of flex in the tire. But I think the BFG MT's would be better. Can't find them anywhere here though!

Where did you find this? I am looking at a duel tray that can be used for single/duel application which is similar to yours, or did you fab it yourself?

I'd love to get a set of the old BFG m/t's! i love the tread pattern! But I literally can not find anywhere around here or even online that carries them in a 31x10.5x15. I mean literally, I've looked almost every place thinkable (that I can think of) and can't find anything other than like a 32.8 or something like that, that's on a 16-17 inch rim. Impossible to find them suckers. On the bright side, I did find a few places that have the BFG KM2's for about 158-168 a piece! Not to bad considering most places I've looked all have them for 200+ a piece for 31x10.5x15. Still shopping though, won't have the money for a new set for a while, but I can dream right?

I used krylon rough tough first as a primer and krylon gloss black after, but I wouldn't use the primer at all. think it was the cause of small dimples in the paint. Maybe just sand it and try the gloss

I used a rustoleum that nearly matches the paint on the jeep, sunrise red or something like that.

All I did was get one of them green scratcher pads brillo or scotchbrite I think, and scrubbed them in soap and water. After they dry completely, spray.


On topic, finished welding up my receiver hitch rack. Started to primer, but it got dark and I was sleepy. I'll try to finish most of the paint tonight. Welding expanded metal is not fun.

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.
