That I do... but the remote for it is in my recovery bag - which I keep inside until I have a locking storage box for the Jeep.

Won't really do you much good if it's in your apartment. Just sayin'

I always have several big towels, two blankets and a sweatshirt or two in the Jeep. When wheeling, I carry extra pants because well you know.

I was looking through the fabrications section and found this. It ended last year so don't know what the end result looked like.

I know. I always pack my stuff when I am going anywhere other than 30 minutes away. But if I am just going to work and back, I would rather not risk getting anything stolen. Dont you fret - I have designs for a wooden storage box to make sure of my trunk space. Just need some warmer weather!

Also - I am going to admit right away that I am not always the smartest person. I was *****ing yesterday that the Jeep has 3 wiper speeds - way too slow, way too fast and ridiculous. I may or may not have just realized this morning that the low setting is adjustable.

I'll bet Bear even knew it was adjustable!

He probably does.... They said I was smart - I never said anything about being bright. I will certainly admit to that.

In other news - I need me some new tires. I think I am going to buy some off or tirerack. There is a distribution center near me.

As much as I love the Goodyear kevlar MTRs... They are definitely not highway tires. I am thinking to get a reasonable set of 33's - then save up and buy a really good set to put on just for when I go out on wheeling trips.

Any opinions on a really good all-around tire?

Falken AT01; I'll buy another set when I kill the ones I have now, and I'm putting them on the LJ as well. You should trust me on this.

With the new apartment and my graduate studies - I simply cant afford $300/tire right now. I would love to get nice tires, but I am looking more at under $200/tire for reasonable driving tires. I can invest in some sweet "just-for-offroad" tires later on this year - but for now I just need decent driving tires.

I am doing a tire comparison on tirerack and it looks like by best 2 options right now are BFG rugged terrain and commercial traction.

Here is where I need opinions. My current wheels are the special rubicon 15" wheels. Am I better off paying for not-fancy 16" wheels and selling my moabs or keeping the moabs to eventually put my wheeling tires on. Or buy every-day tires to put on the moabs and buy 16" wheels to put the wheeling tires on.

So many choices and I have no educated opinion on any of them!

EDIT: My research starts again. I forgot to look at 315s not 285s. This is going to be a project.

My 315/75's are usually around $220 each, shipped to my door.

That's probably do-able. Source?

315/75 is a 35" tire. Your Sahara moabs are 16", aren't they? I'm really confused by your post

Tires for a 15" wheel are much cheaper and you could get a pretty penny selling your Sahara moabs

Discount Tire Direct. Last time I looked, the 33's I'm getting for the LJ were $160-ish.
