Not to mention smitty built stuff is all made in China. Support USA. There are a lot of really nice bumpers made right here in the states. Hanson, genright and poison spyder to name a few.

Thanks for the info. So, the Nitto A/T's, are those the Nitto Terra Grapplers? I am in the market for tires now and have been trying to decide between the Terra Grapplers, Trail Grapplers, or the Goodyear Duratracs. Most of my driving is roadway, but, do some trails and in Florida we have mud on some of the trails. Wasn't sure how good the Terra Grapplers would do in mud. Which tire would you have gone for, since you mentioned a more aggressive tire??? Really do like your Jeep, mine is green and I am getting black wheels too, they look good that way!! I even put black decals on mine, I removed the silver originals.

If you want mud and good road manners I would go with the Grapplers or Duratracs. The Nittos are heavy though. Lots of people love the Duratracs, I like my Grapplers. Quiet, grip well and wear well.

I still stand by the STT. Fantastic road manners and great in the mud and rocks. Best all purpose tire out there and you don't have to settle for an AT

Just to clarify...the Cooper STT? It looks like a nice tire, and pretty good price compared to most!

I have the Trail Grapplers. They are very aggressive, and I have been to a lot of places with them that leave people in complete awe. As of right now I have 33,000 miles on them. And of that a lot of it is offroad trail running through very rough terrain at relative high speeds. You can see just how much tread I still have left in these pics I took last week. They hold up very well, and I have never had a puncture go all of the way through them. I rotate all 5 of them every 5K miles and run the pressure at 28lbs.

Install was straight forward. I downloaded the PDF instructions from their website. They don't include them in the packaging. Have a buddy help and you can have it done in a couple hours.
