I want Kevlars but no one ever has any 17s in stock. I may go with the KM2s, but my first choice would be the Kevlars. We'll see what happens when I finally get the money for them.

If your gonna wheel the southeast I would stray away from kevlars yeah they are cool but they pack up with mud easy. And in the south these clay covered rocks, the kevlars don't do to good. If you don't believe me search I did. I chose the km2s because mine is a dd. But if it weren't I'd go with the ltb or irok seems to be the favorites of guys down south. Can't wait to see your jeep with the lift on been waiting on this to happen for a year and half nice to see you fianlly bit the bullet. When you get ready well go wheeling to test it out. Mountainside or morris mountain would be a good break in for all those shiny parts.

Oh and if you have deep enough pockets or find a good deal. The maxxis creepy crawlers or the pitbulls shine very well.

Thanks everyone. I'm itching to get everything on already!

Thanks for the heads up about the Kevlars. I actually thought about that and figured with the big voids in the Kevlars they would clean out good. I'll probably end up with the KM2s since they will be in stock whenever I order them. Some LTBs or Creepy Crawlers would be awesome, but I'd like some tread life out of my tires. And yea, I'd love to test everything out once its done.

Yea, going to keep it easy on the stockers for right now.

But fitting them? I don't know, buying the correct carrier for the 30 and throwing them in there. They'll work.

No. Going to leave it open.

I have thought about a Detroit TrueTrac though. I loved the one I had in my D35. Don't know yet...
