    Slide off a rock and crushed my rocker panel on a giant root sticking out of the legde. Worst part was, my sliders were on their way and showed up 2 days after this.

    Waterports back on sale at costco $130 if anyone missed it last time :thumbsup:
    To go ahead and answer the obvious question: is it worth it? probably not. Is it nice to have? definitely! Still use mine about weekly washing my hands off doing random crap around the truck. Haven't had an opportunity to do a full shower with it yet, but mine seems to be holding pressure plenty fine, so don't anticipate any let downs when shower time in the woods comes along!

    your rim specs will come in to play to make that decision, but my best guess is you'll have no issues with that tire size. It's a 32" tire and the width is definitely no issue. Worst case scenario is you barely rub mud flaps if you have them or barely on some plastics.

    Its the reason thats my primary tire choice size right now. Don't wanna mess with the hassles a 33" brings, and for the amount of offroading I don't do, I don't need the extra weight daily lol

    why not go 255/80r17?

    if 32" pizza cutters were all i was going to on the stock size rims such as the pro rims you have I'd go even more narrow.

    because the only tire I'd have in the 255/80 is the St Maxx. Its a MT only type of size, and the St Maxx is the only other tire I'd consider in its size. While the maxx is my favorite looking tire, its also 59 lbs and E load, AND the most expensive. A 255/75 can be had in C load and 51ish lbs depending on the tire, AND significantly cheaper. Realistically, a 265/70 will likely be the choice as it can be had in C load or SL for weight in the 40's. A 15 lb difference per corner is huge when considering rotational mass, but the concern for me mostly, is the stopping power. This is gonna be a road tire, and I'm not really trying to rear end someone given the idiots that drive in Bham everyday.
