Looking at the research I've done it'll be interesting to see how things go with mine. My price should be pretty good for my situation but the area in general seems hit and miss on sales. Something cheap and in good shape may sit on the market for 6 months while something beat and overpriced is in escrow in less then 2 weeks to the opposite stories... Seems like no rhyme or reason. I'm going to leave it empty for virtually as long as I possibly can. I'd rather not put another tenant in it. I think I can handle it on the market for about 2 years till things really got super ugly on my side but we'll see. It'll be a good weekend home till it sells at the very least. Sick of Vegas? LOL, I'll bail to BFE northern Az for a weekend here or there to clear my mind! It'll be a great excuse to put some miles on the dirt bike again finally cause the riding straight from my property out there is badass... Granted, looks like I'll need to cut the trails in again as from what I can tell, nobody out there even rides them anymore.

Well, technically I'll be loosing money as I paid about $30K more then what I'll be listing it at. But... I currently owe quite a bit less then what I'm listing it at so while in the grand scheme I am loosing about $30K on it, I really wouldn't complain if I did pocket some excess change from the sale for what it sells at that I don't owe on it.

On a sadder note


I would like everyone to keep my garage in their prayers. Today my 10 + year old floor jack from Sam's club finally bit the dust. Yes, one of the wheels actually came off. I find my self asking why... why... an autopsy later on in the week will determine if it actually was the wheel that my **** eating neighbor in Texas swapped out for his, like the shady ***-clown that he was. Floor jack, you were good for me. It will be hard to find a replacement that can hold up to my abuse for over the next 10 years.

Okay, question time.

You guys know me, my jeep, and the type of driving/trail riding I do. FWIW, the most intense trail i have ever done is Potato Ridge, and that was 3 years ago when I first bought the wag. No idea if I'd ever even try it again. Most of my trail riding would be backroading. Wheeler pass, mormon well, cottonwood canyon, carpenter canyon, etc.

Not sure when but I'll likely be looking into new tires in the next year or two. The reason this is pertainent right now, is because I'm going to just suck it up and buy a new spare. This means I want to use the new spare as one of my 4 tires when the time comes for new, so I only have to use 3, and one of my used mud's will go in the trunk as the spare. Make sense?

So, the question is.

BFG KM2's or AT's?


AT's would likely wear better, and should be better road manners (I don't really know, never owned a set). the road manners (noise/handling) is somewhat important because i drive alot on the streets, and use it for long trips sometimes. the less noisy and rattly the better.

Mud's will obviously perform better off pavement. And will still last longer than I need them to, but they are louder, and a lil more expensive.

Do you all think I would lose anything by switching to AT's? I have never driven them offroad so don't know if they suck compared to Muds, or if the difference would even matter for somebody like me.

I really liked the BFG A/T's I had on my zj. They were just a tad noisier then highway slicks on road. They worked fine for me off road as well. I've never had km2's but I plan on replacing the duratracs on my truck with a/t's just because they are so damn loud.

The km2's do look great on your jeep, but the A/t's will give it a more period look.

Yes, i do think they look awesome, but whether or not they are necessary or beneficial to my type of driving (99% road, 1% back road, with lots of highway) is the question.

Anybody wanna buy a set of 33x10.50's? haha. Also have a set of rims, 5x5.5

My dad plans to do the same kind of wheeling as you and I just told him this morning to buy the BFG A/T KO's. I had them before the KM2's and I loved them. I was torn when I bought the KM2's and sometimes wish I had the KO's instead.

Get the general grabbers in 33x10.5. I love mine and they are pretty quiet on the road. But, either way I vote ATs for what you do.

A/T's without a doubt... Next time I need tires on my expo, if I can't find a deal I'll be going BFG A/T's.
