so far, i got no complaints about the tires. I've had a chance to check them out in semi-dry conditions with some mud puddles thrown in for good measure. They seem to do pretty well. the only thing i was kinda confuesd about was hard packed, but kinda loose dirt on top. I was climbing this hill (real steep) and the tires broke loose easier than i would have liked. and i was aired down to 15 psi at the time. so i don't know.

They were used tires that i bought from Andre Hryn on this forum. and they are AR 767's.

like i said..i got no complaints!

thanks for the compliments!! makes me all warm and tingely inside!!! hehehehe...

I especially like those last 2 pictures, seeing suspension flex like that is really great.

Rigless!
-NICE NICE... I want to put on 35s too once I get the 5.5" suspension lift. I already have a 3" bodylift.

Question: any rubbing and where? Those are 15x8 AR767's right?

yeah...they are 15x8's AR's....there is only slight rubbing on the swaybar and the radius arms. they don't make any contact with the fenders, even when they are jammed up in the wheel well....i was really happy about that...

right now, the only other time that they do rub is on my bumper. i didn't raise the bumper when i put on the body lift, but i had moved it forward. well, when i was out wheelin, it got shoved back in when i was hitting mud walls....so that explains it....just make sure you move your bumper w\ the body lift....

O.K. so it looks like it goes good in the mud.
Now you need to get out to Moab 2001 and see what you can do on the rocks and hills.

Hey Perry...

..just clicked on the picture in your signature. One question: is that where you broke your spare tire carrier?

F'in Bob,
No it was just before that. We were coming up a trail that was just shell rock. (REALLY BUMPY)
I took it off before we started up that ruff part.
Go to "THE RACK IS BACK" under serious Exploration to see it now.
