    I was at Sullivan this fall with the guys from ST louis. Didn't know you had a Tacobox. That's pretty awesome.

    Yeah I remember your truck. I don’t think we actually met though.

    I love the tacobox but it’s hard to use at moonlight. All the hard stuff needs speed, not a lot of rock crawling. I’m going to flat nasty soon and should be able to test it out on their waterfall.

    Nice, I as well went to 35s not too long ago. Although, I still feel they are “too” small lol. lNeed to make a trip down to flat nasty as a group.

    We'd be down, always with the scheduling conflicts but I got a ton of vacation I'm not gonna be screwed out of this year.

    I’ll be down there for sure the weekend of 27-29 March for a different event. If anyone is available to come down and wheel on Sunday or something

    Same here. I missed a lot of events last year and I’m gonna use all the vacation I can.

    This dude (my bro in law) builds the crap out of them. Has two. This on on 33s, motor swapped for 4.0, stick AND another on 37s and about to have a 318 in it. He’s a Jeep enthusiast to say the least. I got him started around 12 years old and he’s hooked.

    I really like them. They perform great on and off-road. The only issue I have, which is no really a bad thing, is the sidewalls do not flex much at all. Aired down to 15 they barely look like they are.

    How many miles have you put on them? also, how was the power loss with the jump to 35s for you?

    Roughly 3-4K on these now. Probably 1k is offroading.

    It’s a loss for sure but now I just drive with ect on and it’s fine. The truck says it dropped to mpg but the speedo is off by around 5 mph at 60. So it’s confused there a bit

    Some exploring around my house yesterday with the kiddos. Truck looked good with the trees in the background.
