I agree. Much more affordable than Duratracs and other MT variants, but still keep the aggressive look that you're looking for. Will hopefully be able to break them in a bit this weekend.

To say I've used and abused mine would be an understatement.

It is virtually the same tire as the Duratrac for almost half the cost.

I haven't had a chance to take it out for a few days. I'm more or less house locked recovering from my wisdom teeth extraction. They had to drill on my jaw D: anyways i already posted this on the Facebook group but I did get a good deal on some LED dually lights (not rigid) that I plan on putting on my roof rack

there are a bunch of wk groups on Facebook if you just search on Facebook. The one I'm referring to is "the WK & XK group" there are bigger ones though

Correction. Ended up getting Pro Comp Xtreme Terrain A/T because Duratracs were back ordered until late April

I've seen people do this on mountain bikes might have to give this a try with some 9mm

Replaced all interior lights + license plate lights with LEDs (cracked one license plate bulb cover in the process)
Got two new keys cut and programmed. The service man at the dealer didn't look too happy when he saw the ebay keys but $45 and it was moot.
Replaced the radio with one that has an Aux jack from an 04 durango.

Folded my blanket, rolled my sleeping back, sharpened my hatchet, and organized all of it in the cargo compartment. I'm about to go out and swap the multifunction switch to hopefully eliminate the flickering lights.

Also took a look at a 2014 Wrangler Unlimited Polar Edition fully loaded at $41k... it was the new hydro blue color which is gorgeous but I can't step away from my black just yet. Who knows...
