Really awesome looking Jeep. I loved it when it was the Flop but I like the gunmetal even more

I had to do something drastic to make it my own. I hope I'm doing the original build justice and hopefully bringing it to the next level. I love this Jeep and I haven't even got to drive it yet.

It is a 20" Cree I got off of Ebay. The winshield lights I have are also Cree. They are great quality and are very bright. I cant justify Vision-X or Ridged price points. I seem to be getting allot of flack about choosing Nitto. I don't get it. They look good, they perform great, the balance with almost no wieght, the are quit for a mud tire on the road, they have great road manners, they have a thick sidewall, and they were cheaper than the Goodyears. The only negative that I see is they are a little heavy.

Ignore the "flack". I would take heavier (hopefully more durable) over the Goodyears. I've seen way too many flats with MTR/Ks in groups I've wheeled with and racing to even consider them anymore. I really like the K-spec version of these Nittos with the larger side wall lugs, I'm not sure how available they are to the public in a 37 because I don't really see them other than a 40s on the ultra 4s and everything Offroad Evolution makes. I'm also guessing they wouldn't allow them in the mod class but I would run them if I could. I'm thinking Nittos or Toyos when I get rid of the old style MTRs I have now.

Bunch of 37 nitto's out here. Not sure if they are K spec or not but they seem to hold up on the big boy trails well. At least better than MTRk's. Great looking tire and all the guys I know with them like em. My toyos sure do wear well and have been solid.

Can't wait to see this thing put back together.

I was bummed when you said MUD grapplers. I personally think those are the ugliest tires

But since you actually got the trail grapplers. I think they will look sweet on your jeep. Idk anyone with them. But they look like a good tire and I know there are quite a few running them in ultra 4.

Will be a good test

I'm still a diehard MTR/K guy though

Me too, but I have seen the nittos workout in mud and there is no comparison. I don't know about rocks or other stuff.
