You are going to love the grabbers... I have been running them on my TJ for over a year as street shoes... They really handle well... And at $225 a tire how can you go wrong!

That is a sweet deal... I have a club member looking for them... will let him know! I painted the reds and mounted them facing in... but I was never a big fan of raised white lettering either... can not wait to see more... I built a '65 CJ5 with my son... bone stock... was a great time and a fun ride!

Will be doing some slight engine touch ups/modifications today when I get off work.

Change oil, replace valve covers and gasket, re route spark plug wires and de grease some and replace oil pressure sensor since mine has a slight leak.
