    We got ours. Today was trash day and we got our two. Of course one is so dry it dropped a ton of needles. VERY dry. Rick will love how it burns. :D

    I got a line on some new tires. A guy down here has a new set of Mickey Thompson MTZ's that he bought but never used. I was thinking of low-balling an offer to him but don't know much about the tires. They are larger in diameter than Goodyear MTR's and have more tread so I guess they would be okay. All the reviews are from wanna-be off roaders who think rock crawling is driving down a gravel driveway in the rain in their Dakota's so their great reviews are suspect. If I can get them for under $800 it might be worth it since new they are over $1200. Any of you have any experience with them?

    I just agreed to purchase them for $750. Its close to a buy three get one free deal. I haven't bought new tires for the Ex in over ten years. I get my money's worth. I remember the MTR's I have on there now were less than $600 for the set, to give you an idea of how long ago that was.

    Yeah tire prices are just crazy. Just spent $1400 on tires for the Pumpkin. Let my last tires rot in the sun while the Dart was being built. Bad move...:banghead:

    Very good chance we will not make this run. But my hope is by skipping this I'll be able to do more later.;) Been really busy with my new job. Maybe TDS;)

    Well, I was hopeing to slip in and do this run but my 4406 is on too many pieces to make it. I have another 4406 on its way but I do not feel comfortable going on this long of a run with no "break in" time on a new-to-me transfer case.

    I'll have to catch up with yoots at TDS Safari.
