Dynapros are a great tire. I bought them after hearing GregB_00XJ's good results with them. Got to test them out in the rocks aired down last weekend and they did incredible, treadwear is supposed to be one of the best for MT's. Sidewall met some sharp rocks with no issues.

Also they seem to run kind of big for the size. Mine are 32s but are pretty much the same height as my friends new 33 Duratracs. Love them so far.

Edit: just realized I quoted page 2 lol. Not sure if this helps anymore...

Honestly it was so long ago that I don't have pics from it anymore.

Did you get a template with the snorkel? It's fairly easy though I recommend having a buddy help you since it's awkward to hold.

We lined up the a-pillar mount first, then went from there. Put the template on and drilled each hole one by one, checking for fitment issues inbetween each drilling cycle.

Also you'll have to finesse the snorkel (if its the same one was me) into the hole for the intake because of the bend in the tube, I used a dremel to make the hole slightly larger on the back side.
