Finished welding the axle tubes today, straightened the lower control arm mounts and beefed them up. Going to roll the axle back under my baby tomorrow. We got wheeling coming up this weekend. So got to git er done.

Buttoned up the front axle today, so I am good for my Saturday wheelin fun.
Might also buy 4x MTR 40" stickies if I can get them for the price I am willing to pay for them.

Still got em, still love em. For local trails I wanted 37's and fell in love for the time being with stickies, they did beyond awesome in Moab

Hard to beat stickies on those big slabs of rock out there I'm sure. Are the sticky MTR's you're looking at the new style MTR/Ks or old style MTRs?

I didn't even know there were sticky MTRKs

Are they still radials or bias ply and any difference with tread design besides being softer?

Edit: Nevermind
