Talking Finally found something the Rugged Trail is good for!!

I figured out just about the only thing the factory rugged trail is good at doing.





My personal Fav.



I always smile the morning before new tires are going on.

I did not replace them with BFG AT's just for the fact that BFG put their name on the rugged trails. Nittos for now.

On a factual note, 17 x 9 with 4.53 in. Backspace / -12 mm Offset with 265/75/17 Nitto Terra Grappler will rub with factory suspension.

I know, I am sorry to disappoint I was carrying my purse. I considered it, In my defense a snapped rear from a driveway burnout is the last thing I need to hear about when showing the kids how to do a burn out.

Yes new wheels, see link.

I like you thinking and I am one step ahead of you, I still have the factory wheels and tires mounted in the garage. Their day will come just not in the driveway.

Nothing like spraying your own house with melted rubber and marking up your driveway. At least you had fun doing it.

It's 4wd. You have to be in low to use the locker.

Looks cool but meh. I'm formally against doing a brake stand without a line lock. I like my rear brakes.

I did have to use the no computer aids mod to get them to turn over ;( weak. Just in case I had a bottle of soap sitting on the window seal ready to go.

No excuses, I promise I could get that 2.7 to light them up somehow.

I have done the locker mod so I could have done it locked in 2wd, again busted rearend b/c of driveway burnout, not worth it.

Also considered brakes but its getting about time to change the pads anyway.
