Thanks a lot guys! And no tricks, I didn't use the winch! Only sheer traction thanks to the QD2 system and the tires. The driver rear tire is on a rock at the base. That was as far up as I had the guts to go On the other side of that rock is a nice drop off and rolling off the side would have sucked! I am working on posting more pics from the trip, they will be up later tonight...

The tread depth is right at .5" but I don't remember what they were when new.
about how many miles do you think they will last?

Or just remove the front sway bar, that's what I did! With the HD coils the ride is still very controlled and flexes very well off road.

I am bad at judging, but I would guess at least 40k. Since they have 16k on them now and still have 1/2" left, I assume they still have a while still to go.
