    How many miles do you have on those tires? I think these will be what I upgrade to, especially after your review of them. Unless the KM3 comes in a tall skinny 33" by time I'm ready to buy.

    I was in a completely stock Off Road for Rush last fall. If you don't mind some pin stripes in your paint, stock trucks fair pretty well. That being said, I do have the rear locker so that helped when I had clearance issues. Plus having @mwc273 tugging me out of shit when I got stuck.

    BTW, I'm in for this! Even if I park my truck when we do some harder trails.

    I’m just above 46,000 miles on them, but just like any tire if you keep them rotated on a good intervals they’ll last. I believe I’ve only rotated them 7 times since I’ve had them, I’d prefer to do it more often or at least when I do my oil changes.

    That spot would be a nightmare with a big group and if its wet. It was a struggle getting in and out.

    Just re-watched the video from last year. Still makes me happy to watch us successfully get me under that massive tree with about 8 of us standing on my sliders/bumper. I did NOT want to have to take that thing off and get it back up there again :thumbsup:

    It was pretty dry when we were there. I do remember a small creek or runoff in the bottom now.

    It was a disaster for us. Honestly I'm surprised we made it up out if that valley with out any winching. Even getting back to the spot in the woods was a sloppy mess. I nose dived into the bank pretty hard. Still dont know what part of the truck hit but couldn't find any damage.
