My decision was between the MTZ's and the ProComp XMT. The biggest factor was that they had the pro comps in stock so I went ahead and took them. Looks great btw.

Turns out the front axle was bent, I was trying to score a 44 but I came across a rather new looking 30 with new ball joints and some superlift steering components for 75$.

I havent had a problem with them, they clean really good. Stuff that my friends were flying through to get through I would just kinda crawl through haha. I almost got stuck before that picture was taken I had to forward and reverse it like 10 times before I got out of the hole. I walked through my ruts and they were up to my knees lmao, Id say almost 2 feet deep. You could see where my diffs were getting burried in the mud too but I still got out. Id give the tires a 10. Im deff gunna buy them again.

Guess its about time to update a little bit lol.

Heres a couple pics from a wheel trip or two.

He got stuck and yes, his Tranny lines caught fire and almost caught the whole jeep but thank god we had a cooler filled with half melted ice.



My jeep after repeatedly pulling him out, and him trying to make it up this huge muddy hill in two wheel drive.
