And BTW the Yakity Yak is no longer there
My personal fav area is us89 from Richfield,Ut to Flagstaff, Very nice scenery. And anywhere west of Richfield towards Colorado. And down 191 into Moab and down towards Cortez,Co. I used to wheel some trails up in the Fish Lakes N.F. when I lived in Fillmore,Ut. Its nice to sit on top of a mountain and eat a lunch the Mrs' made.

Probably flushing it monday. But its just a part of my "Amsoil Complete Engine Flush". Everything else has been excellent though. But I only plan on using ~1/2 the bottle. IDK why but I'm kind of skeptical of all the horror stories of stuff clogging up filters and whatnot.

So just a quick update before I go to sleep. I found a set (5) 08 wrangler wheels and Goodyear wrangler SR-A's for $600. I plan on talking this kid down a bit because he thinks the tires are a lot more expensive, which they are not. But My plan is to take off the Wrangler SR-A's on the new wheels currently, mount up some General Grabber AT2's and sell my old wheels, old tires, and the SR-A's to help pay for the rims and new tires.

Alright, I finally made up my mind. I am going to keep my 16" Silverblades and mount up some 245/75/16 Treadwright MTG's. All the good reviews I've read really boosted my confidence in this tire. As well, the only negative review I've seen are people who don't have them and are just going off what THEY think. So I'll kinda be like a guinea pig to test these. And expect a FULL review/write-up about them when I get them mounted.

Now its just time to save up

Anyone interested in 85%+ 225/75/16 Toyo Open Countrys?

Another overdue update.

Had my driver side front caliper seize yesterday. Its fine now but I don't want to go threw that ever again. Ordered new Akebono calipers, Monroe ceramic front pads, dynamic rear pads, Brembo front calipers, and will resurface the rear rotors.

I plan on bringing it to a shop just so its done right, and I'll have them weld up my muffler so that annoying rattle goes away when shifting from reverse to drive.

Just drove 400 miles on my new MTG's

They are loud, and heavy. But they look awesome. Gonna try em out on the trail soon.

Ohh they do look purrrty. The thing I hate about tires is that there are so many choices. I am now looking at the General Grabber AT2's.

But how do the MTG's handle?

I had the grabbers for a year, now I have the MTG's

Besides the noise and loss in mpg, I am noticing a little vibration in acceleration from a stop. But like I said I only have 400 miles on road with them. Other than that, they have felt the same as the grabbers.

I loved the grabbers, just wanted to get some silverblades.. I was sick of my steelies.
If I cant sell the grabbers I will keep them as a highway/winter set

Oh, I got to drive through quite a bit of rain on the MTG's and they did well.
