Thanks Lump. Pictures work for me.

As soon as I get the rubicon express lift installed that's sitting down in the garage, my next stop will be to look at some of these duratracs in a 285/75/16.

I was scheduled to be in Ouray in 3 weeks. Those plans changed. Maybe our paths will cross towards the end of June.

I bought a set of the Duratracs for my XJ this morning. So far I LOVE them. They ride smooth and quiet on the highway. I tried a small trail this afternoon that had a mixture of sand and mud. Tires performed very well. Once I have had a chance to get a few more miles on them, I'll be sure to report back. In the meantime, here are a few pics:

Is that the largest size you can fit on your lift?

33's would fit but then I would need to re-gear. For now this is my daily driver so these tires are an excellent compromise.

I've been running them a couple months now and they are outstanding performers, both on and off road.

I dont get to go offroad as much as i would like, and i wont beat this jeep up on serious rocks, mostly just trails in colorado when i go out there once a year, ill be headed out to ouray in 5 weeks, ill post up how they do out there. Im not sure but i dont expect to get 40k miles out of these tires, the tread is softer than the bfg's but i like that, i want traction out of my tires, i usually get sick of looking at tires before 40k miles and get new, i know what a waste.
Definitely keep us posted after your trip. It sounds like you have the same needs for your tires as I do. I'm pretty much all on road except for a trip once a year where I might get off road for a couple of days. Keep us posted and have a fun trip.

Post some pictures of your trip in the trail reports section of the forum. I love reading post of peoples vacations to CO. I've never been to the Ouray area but that is planned as soon as my boys are old enough to appreciate it.

Just got a set put on Friday. Haven't had a chance to do much more than soggy gravel roads. So far I love them.
