for anybody that cares... The KM2 is the middle one... looks like the Krawler on the right huh?

I think it looks damn cool. Hope it performs good cause i might get em if the treadwear is good and do well in the ohio weather.

Rather than buy expensive BFGs, my philosophy is that it's better to spend 1/2 or 2/3 on a tire like the Geolandar AT+ II (which also looks unique) because the less you spend now the more you'll have later when you want to go bigger.

Better hit me up if you head south a bit. Also, a real popular weekend trip for vacation is to the Smokies. Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge I go about 10 times a year. Going up on the 4th.

And from there Tellico is about 2 hours I think. I've been once in a stock Rubi we did fine so after that BB and tires lets make the trip even if we watch I'm down for anytime just let me know.

I hope you have fun in Notville, TN(not a championship, not a bowl game, LOL sorry go Dawgs!!)

As for the KM2s they do really good. Compared to the KMs. My cousin has them on his Taco he likes them they wear good and are really quiet. He aint really been off road much so cant tell you just read the reviews and comparisons. I'll look into them if they offer them in 265s in a couple years when I need new ones..

I just did 2" spacers and shackles and got some 31's. I had to do some very light trimming to the plastic bumper up front and I'm going to need to bumpstop the rear.

They fit a lot better than I thought..and I just have shackles on really saggy rear springs so its more like a 1 inch lift...

Yup and the backside of the rear flares also.

Thats where I rub. I'll have to see after I move my axle up a half inch and lift it another 1/2". Maybe that will fix it.
