Iroks would looks sweet. either them or the 35" LTB's

and I tried to force it up but it was just digging in up to the shackle. There was like a 3' ledge there in the middle of the hill.

even if I did make it up it would never have gone over the transfer case skid

thats what its there for :D
but getting stuck when you're out alone sucks.

that's why i'm ditching my rear bumper.. if the shackles don't dig in the bumper does. I'm afraid that my front one's are gonna do quite a bit of digging as well.


a guy in Houston is selling some 36x1350 Iroks for $350, supposed to have 75-80% tread left, i'm just waiting on an email back, and getting very impatient. another option is 37" MTrs for $300 or 5 35" MTrs for $500.

screw spending 500 on 2 tires when i can get a set for less.

yeah but I keep the covers on when they aren't being used because I've had 2 lights busted by rocks on the front. Then these are bigger so even more of a chance.

One of the covers has a chunk of plastic knocked out of it too from a rock hitting it.

yeah, just have to be careful with peoples idea of 75-80% tread left.

especially swampers because they show pics with the sidewalls and they still look good until you see the actual tread depth haha

you could probably almost buy 2 new sets of LTB's for 1 new set of iroks

I wonder if they make a rock guard for them. I know they do for KC's but I don't know if they would attach to these lights

They are the same as the Hella 700, so they should make a cover.

Maybe later.

yeah me too. I want to go somewhere with actual trails but I just won't have time until this spring maybe.

The thorns tear up these swampers since they are so soft, so I need to offroad outside of damn mesquite trees haha. Had to patch one of them dammit.
