I have only found that tire rack had them. Discount is usually pretty good about ordering tires they don't carry though. How do you like those tires? I was interested in them.

They did very well on the trail. They do hang on to little rocks though. The one that failed had a leaking valve stem, and when it deflated, it burned through the sidewall. I didn't drive very far with it deflated. It started to vibrate and no more than 15-20 seconds later, it was flat and I was pulled over. The sidewall was still smoking when I tried to put air in it. It was done.

I was down at 10 yesterday with mine on the trail. Notice the front here, cause of the caster and the way it's sitting there's a decent amount of weight on that outside. I looked and the inside wall wasn't even bulged while parked there. LOL

$3.56 for a bolt kit from VatoZone and 3-4 tablespoons or so of brake fluid later I am now able to stop again. Well, stop is a relative term when it comes to my rig, lets just say I am now able to slow down as quickly as I was able to before I also crawled around and checked all the other bolts under my rig just in case my gas tank or transmission or suspension etc. decided to fall off too. Nothing else was loose. Really perplexing why those two bolts were the only thing wrong when nothing has been done to the brakes in a while.

Oh well. Hats off to Garza for hooking me up with the part # and recommendation to hit up the local auto parts store rather than buying from the stealership and having to wait 2-3 days for them to arrive. I hadn't thought something like that would be at the auto parts store.. meh, shows how much I know.

I went to a trail run again last night with the cherokee forum guys to Lake Mead, and what a blast! Defently a long fun trail with some areas that will make for some 3 wheel motion.

Stock up on sawzall blades, axle shafts, and u joints! Lol. That's a lot of weight in tires and lots of gear. Top speed of 70?

Just read this interesting fact "If one places a tiny amount of liquor on a scorpion, it will instantly go mad and sting itself to death." Andrew, you must test this and post video documentary.
