    Ok. I will have some pics soon. I got the Bull Bar and Step Rails installed (they look good). Next, is to install the 3" lift I got, and to put the tires on. Here is my dilemma or question as the case may be. I bought (2) Cooper Discoverers (very nice) and I was waiting for another set to come in. I have been waiting a while and a friend offered to sell me a set of (2) Dakota Definity tires that have 12/32 left on them for $75. They are completely flawless. What would be the negative results if I put the Definity's on the front and the Coopers (larger tread) on the rear?? Shouldn't be a problem if I have them balanced and aligned correct??? They are after all, the same size tire.
