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.

So the kid who blew up his tranny got another 500 jeep and decided to take it stock through a couple mud holes.



Then decided to get a blow out and drive home on a rim about 5 miles down a highway doing about 40 lol.
