i ran 10 psi and my tires didnt slip once in the rock. i was amazed at how well my jeep handled everything really. the pics dont really show it but that was a level 4-5 trail and they level 5s out there your suppose to have 35s+ and lockers. it was like riding a mountain goat the ATs held up just fine really. no chunks coming off even with alot of side wall rub. i love these tires. they perform awesome offroad and even better on. their life span is amazing as well. mine are a year and a half old and still look new

Thats awesome, yea mine are about 2-2 1/2 years old and still have great tread and totally rock in the sand, and on road but i rarely get a chance to get on the rocks and the place i go with all the rocks has lots of dirt area's on the trails that turns them from easy as heck in the dry to almost like ice hills when it rains b/c its clay, so when i go i run a set of tsl radials that i got off another jeep that i sold.

alright so i know my plans for the jeep have been jumping around alot lately but thats good. means ive been thinking about it in terms of what i want/need and what is practical. my next plan of attack will be dropping the fenders and flares. after than i will get some spring clips put in, longer brake lines and longer shocks. from there i think i will invest in an oil pan/tranny skid, rear bumper tire carrier, brakes, better control arms and 35s. i better start saving my pennies

should i also look into some steering assist for the 35s?
