New Tires

Well originally I wanted a set of LTB's, but I looked at Craigslist haha. Picked up a set of 33x11.5 thornbirds...I don't care I get them for 400 bucks with a set of rims that must be like 5x5.5? so I can't use them. Anyways, they do look nasty. They have supposedly 200 miles on them.

And I found this after driving for 2 hours bah! I picked up a new rear output seal, but I have no clue how I am going to get that out. Anybody know? Those weird headed bolts must be something I don't have and I'm sure they are going to be stuck on there really good.

The bodylift better be here this week sometime, and I'll get the tires mounted and on...

I've always wanted to get them and groove the hell out of them and see how much better they would be.

A buddy of mine used to have them on his Jeep. He always said the rode like they were square, but they looked to cool to get rid of them. I never rode with him, but I gotta say, they look mean rollin down the road!

4 Wheel Parts mounted and balanced my tires before they sent them out to me. I suppose any tire shop can balance them, just tell em to put the weights on the inside lip, thats where mine are.
Don't wait for your BL, throw them tires on there and see how they fit!
I don't have a body lift yet, just crank your t-bars and don't go wheelin until the BL is on.

Haha I think I wanna try em out first. Like I said I don't think they are going to be that bad, of course I'm going from some MTZ's so they will be much louder on the road, but I want that. I can send you my MTZ's for a price

i have a pair of 29/10.5 t-birds on the back of my beater. i love them they aren't great in mud, but they aren't as bad as many people say. i love looking in the mirror and seeing the sidewall lugs sticking out when i'm driving.
