Nicely done. You sure put this together in a hurry. Does the stock driveshaft need modification or does it bolt right up? Are you going to get a locker or limite slip for the D30?

a hurry? took two weeks. lol

driveshaft would work if it was 4" longer. lol and that is the superlift one.

i have a Detroit tru trac in the garage for the D30.

i don't know man...they're pretty good and all, i'm just not a huge fan myself...i was deadset on getting MT/R's for the rest of my life just based on reviews and what other people had said, then i drove with a pair of them on and yuck!
They were horribly loud!
I, personally, will put my MTZ's against the Goodyears any day of the week in all aspects...especially in the Quiet Ride, Ride Comfort, and Self Cleaning areas...


just my .02

guess its just opinion but i love the sound, and they do awesome for me in the street compared to other tires i have used.

i thought mine cleaned really well, they dont have alot of time in the dirt but i was impressed with them

snow they just rock...

yeah it's just opinion...just like some people swear interco's are the best tires in the world! BAR NONE! yeah, if you don't get on the pavement, EVER!

maybe if goodyear raised the shoulder lugs a little more and siped them a little wider they wouldn't be so bad to me...I've gotten spoiled with the Mickey Thompson's though...for me, it had alot to do with pricing as well...i got mine for just over $150 a piece and i was quoted $170 for the goodyears....

but since i drive ALOT on the highway and Wichita's snow and ice removal sucks as well, so i really had to go with something that was well rounded and cost efficient...


the truck looks awesome just they same!

nah, bfg m/t's are gonna become a thing of the past pretty soon...with all these companies figuring out new siping methods on mud terrains and ways to extend treadlife tires like BFG M/T's and Buckshott Mudders are gonna fade away...they wear out too fast, get horrible road traction, too loud, ride's pretty crappy, and are dangerous on slick roads...

keep in mind my comments are all based on a comparison to a siped mud terrain...when used for only what they are intended for, which is no highway usage, the bfg's and maxxis's are great...i'm just putting it into perspective that very few of us have dedicated trail rigs, but alot of us run mud terrains...
