    I got my new wrangler duratracs put on today. I love them! They hardly make any noise at all.

    Those tires look sweet!! Are they reasonably priced?? I love the GeoLandar MT+ tires, but those look real good too!! Let us know how they do in the mud! :D

    I had my set of duratracs put on this Tuesday. Big improvement over the OEM dunlops. Guy at the tire place actually asked if i wanted another set of them. Noticeable hum and stiffer ride over the dunlops, but the badass look and traction make it an overall win.

    ha naw i wasn't calling him a girl...i just didnt think about it until my girlfriend told me.

    and the guy i went to charged me $159 per tire. and thats put on balance and all for a tire so im not sure what the actual tire costs. The place i bought em from sells tires for dirt cheap. He beat everyone else i asked by $100 dollars on the total cost. ;)

    Well, I just put mine to the ultimate test, went out on the gravel roads near here. The wind and extreme cold is really packing the snow into some mean drifts, with some being over 4' deep in the middle of the road. I made it a lot further than i would have with the stock tires, but eventually the lack of a locking rear or front diff left me stuck and calling the old man to come and pull me out. We tried one more road together, but again i ended up buried. Gave him a chance to try out the hankooks that he just put on his dakota. I guess after spending 1000 on tires, i'm now going to spend another 1000 on a rear locker. Any suggestions? I have a 2009 RC 2.7 4x4.
