Yeah, 37x12.50x17 I will see if I can find my tire gauging tool to measure the tread.

When you started this thread you mentioned EJS...is that still in the plans at all?
Yeah, I would love to make it out to EJS at least once in my life.

I like duratracs.

I love the MTRs also. I may just have to keep what i have.

As for generals. I have heard they do not wear well and they chunk pretty bad

I would check out the new open country extreme A/T from toyo. My brother has them and there a nice tire Or the open country m/t, both would look good. Offer decent traction on and off road and have a very long tread life (my uncle had 70k on his mt's before he replaced them)
Not Highlined things would get in the way real quick. but I have thought of that option.

Me to, but I think I may build a new set of flares for the bed and make them highline.

EJS was awesome, but great for a one time deal. I tend to enjoy Moab more with smaller groups like 5 to 10, not 40 to 50 rigs lol. But either way, EJS is a must do at least once.

Replaced the pinion seal tonight, Adjusted the top to my liking and adjusted the driver seat a little better fitting for my short self. I think I may drive her to work tomorrow.

Awesome. I sometimes wish I could drive mine to work, well I did get to drive it during work once, after a snow storm.

EJS sounds fun, but there's no way you could do as many trails as Kevin and I did last May.

Hendrix, sadly my tires are for 15" wheels. I don't have near the axles to support 37" tires anyways
