I never had one for my coil set up..i just tied the hoop back into the frame..worked fine..and if your only using it for shocks..id just tie it back in the frame, dont go into the trouble of going across the motor with removable mounts..

also, I hope you dont plan on flexing it out to much, the opening of the fender well is like exactly 37" its SO tight once that tire gets closer..thats why anything bigger you have to open it up.

I understand that but I know when i had my first SAS it never hit the mud, and i flexed it whenever I could..so where I was going with this was..dont plan on flexing it out to see what it can do without ripping two fenders and a bed up

I got cha E lol...

I'm so pissed right now. The guy I was supposed to be meeting today to get the 37's and 17's from hasn't one of my 6 calls since 2pm yesterday, either of my 2 voicemails or my text or email I sent. Shane even called and left him a voicemail... Still nothing from this douche bag. It was a great deal, I'm just pissed I wasted the time trying to set stuff up and wasted friends' time who were gonna take me up there to get them since I only have a 4ft bed lol. Looks like I'm lookin at:


37x13.0

Sittin on these:


18x9

I'll have to sign up... Only thing is I don't want Toyo's again. They're garbage tires to me. I just like them cuz I got a screamin deal on them. WAY overpriced for what they are IMO...

I'll look into that though... That may be another one of those, can't pass up deals..

yes, my best friends PSD. i know your not going to "go muddin" in your trcuk and i feel that is the one thing that keeps that tire respectable in the offroad aspect, but when my buddy put his sts on and we hit the snow it was tremendously better than the nitto's. and as for an all around tire for wheeling there are TONS of them. iroc's, mtr's km2's, swamper sx's, baja claws (excluding snow), and dreaded to say, boggers.....

just because i have a ranger on 33's doesnt mean i dont know my stuff man, i grew up wheelin and had a few rigs of my own

I never said you didn't have any experience in wheelin, but not everyone has been in or had grapplers.. They're awesome in the snow which is what a lot of this build is for, and reliability. I've grown up around wheelin too. All my buddies have wheelers or built them. Now it's my turn to do something cool and fun.

I'm trying to go with a used tire, something like 90% or better that people are wanting to get rid of... Only Interco tire I'd run is the IROK, and even at that, It's pushin it. They're just massively heavy tires. MTR's are sweet, but spendy like a Nitto... And the KM2's are way spendy, but the ones I found were for an awesome price... I still haven't decided if I quite like the baja claws... Some days I do, and some days I don't lol.

yep every tire I have ever gotten besides the very first after stock (my 265 BFG at's) where from craigslist or the local jeep forum. you will always find a good deal if you keep looking here and there. dont think i have spent more than 500 on 4 tires ever. I've had 33's, 35's, 36's, 37's. And all had atleast half tread which is good enough for wheeln.

Yeah I've been lookin the last 4 days on every CL region around me within 300 miles... Seriously this sucks. When I said they were KM2's, they're not... They're MT Krawlers... Worth even more $$$ and of course he won't answer his phone.

Just sounded too good to be true, and now I think it has come to that.

Nice, I have been on the hunt for a set of 285/75 and have ran a cross a few nice deals so I figured I would try and help, saw you posted on the toyos on NWW. Good price for new tires thats for sure.

You could always look into the Mud Trac tires like I have on my truck. They're seriously some long, slow wearing tires. They hook up in mud damn well, and in snow they seem to do really well unless it's hard pack, almost ice, then they get a little slippery. I'm not sure if they offer them in your size, as I couldn't find them through Google.. I love mine and I'll be buying another set. You could get them new for pretty cheap if you can find a supplier.

Just a thought.....

These tires are absolute garbage and aren't worth spending a penny on...
