Icon14 New tires and Burn out video

I finally got the new tires so I thought that I would share what it looks like.
I have the t-bars maxed and 2' shackles. With those and the tires I have about 3-1/4" of lift over stock in the front and about 2-1/4" in the back.

Anyways I decided to have some fun with the old tires so I went down to the flood plains and do a couple of burn outs. Unfortunately it was below freezing so I think that they could have been better in the summer. The tires would have heated up better. I would have liked for them to be a little longer but cars kept coming!

Lol, you amaze me with your stupidity.

Looks like fun. I feel bad for your Ranger, though. That, or I'm just jealous cause I can't do that.

Yep they sure are. I really like them, for the relatively small amount of lift that I have, I think that they fit very well.
