I just want to restate that i wasnt trying to put down any other lift, or anybody else's setup. I was trying to promote one lift over another, or any kind of a setup over another.

Being just getting off work, im tired and grumpy. I re-read my earlier post, and i was like, "Who wrote that!"... oh man... have another brother!

These pics are much older than the other I posted.

Looks good - proportionate. Also looks like it would preform very well offroad.

Nice job!

Very nice.

You can really see how the come right to the edge of the fender here. I like the other shots too. I can see they stuff in nicely.

I did pick up some Moabs with the MTRs this past weekend. So I'm really excited about these possibilities. Of course they have almost brand new 245-75-16s so it will be a few years until I need tires. But I'm really liking the 285-75-16. I would also consider a 265/75-16. Anyone running those?

fargo, i think those mtr's might wear a little faster than that, unless its not your daily driver.

I could have easily gotten 40K out of my stockers, and they were never roated for 15K (dumb previous owner). Right now I am at 30K on the 285/75's and around 1/2 tread. Keep 'em inflated correctly and rotated every 4-6K and they can last.

I absolutly love the 285/75 tire size. IMHO 10.5's where to narrow and 12.5's looked silly. As you can see in the pic, the MTR's ball up quicker than anything in the sticky mud.

They aren't my daily tire. I have a set of Ravines with the stock GSAs that are the daily driver tire. The MTRs will only be put on if I'm going somewhere with trails. So I expect they'll last a long time.
