That's a damn sweet christmas present!

Let's see,in the last 4 weeks I have spent...

$872 for Cooper Discover's for my dad's truck and I got his Wranger RT/S installed on mine

$1650 for rear brakes, new u-joints, slave cylinder and clutch

$338 for Cragar Soft 8 rims

$300 for some used 31x10.5's because the Wrangler's suck ***** so I figured I'd buy some real tires for myself instead.

Needless to say,I am rather broke at the moment.

The Wrangler MT/Rs are awesome, the RT/S's suck though.

dude,you're tellin me! 4wd doesn't even help a completely helpless tire. If anything it just gets you in more trouble.

Wrangler RT/S's are just oversized Hyundai Accent tires.

The Tera Grapplers and Xterains wear bad you wont get any life from them . The MT/R Wrangler wont be as bad as you think , not much worse than the KM2 I ran them on my Dodge 3/4 ton they worked great improved traction 10fold for it being a 2WD.
