After doing a bunch of research I think it is worth it to save up for the PSC box. Kind of leaning toward black as well. I liked the raw aluminum because it doesnt need touched up

I sure hope so! It is just not a skid I will want to replace very often.

Those look like really nice tires, let us know how they perform and what they look like mounted up.

Okay - just checked your pics out from the weekend you spent at SMORR. WAY more water than the last time I was there. (Pretty much bone dry back in May) I'm typing this as I drink my morning coffee before making the trek down there this morning. The whole fam + GSD is making the trip this time and the weather is supposed to be - let's just say less than desireable

I'll let ya know how it goes - should be an adventure.

Nice! I wish I could join you, but I am getting married in 2 weeks. It rained solid and very hard from Thursday to Sunday. Pucker up and ROcky road were quite a bit more difficult because of the water. Heck even pewes creek was interesting because there was 2 feet of water.

Take lots of pics. Are you towing the XJ down there?

Getting them mounted today. They seem like prettygood tires, and are a full 32.5 inches. I might have to cut some more on the fenders of the Commander

Good looking jeep makes me regret selling mine. SMORR is a blast! Bronco Buster and Rocker Knocker are two of my favorite trails. I was too big of a chicken to try double whammy.

They are from Allied.

They ballanced well, dont leak, and were pretty easy to install. So far I really like them.
