    Looks like a lot of tire there for a 2.7 to be pushing around. Since there new your not going to be able to check for wear.
    Take it to a garage and have them look over it.

    Be ready to replace those tires. Super Swamper Boggers don't have much road life, they ball out pretty fast.

    What is very important is how much you will be driving on pavement. (90% ?) Those tires are for mud, bad for snow, terrible for hi-way. Buy a second set of tires for hi-way use if you buy this truck. Not much mud here in Colorado, only old mining roads at 12,000 ft. Not much into flat lander 4 wheeling. Been there, done that. BORING!!!! Great looking TOY. Lifted, etc. Oversize, large mudders will definitely affect power/torque in a bad way with the 2.7. Cool looking is usually not a good thing. Looks are one thing. Usefulness is something else.
