    8 Ply mud tire?

    I'll go with drastic?

    My KM2's are stiff but probably not even in the Manly Interco tire league...Those tires could be ran on 3/4 Diesel F-250's and Rams!!

    Oh yeah...Photos!!!

    Will eventually get some better pictures - just from the blackberry now...


    tires finally installed - lift going in tomorrow evening!

    Ride is ok - had them on my wrangler before so I had an idea what I was in for! :). and not "too" loud on the highway. :D

    TACOTRXUS4.jpg

    Due to the "heavy" nature of the tire - They were hard to balance, but we managed.

    The body shop was too busy today to paint/bake my rims - so I may wait till after winter to have them done...

    I vote to leave the rims stock. Nice tires, will look even better once you get that front end lifted up a bit close to level with rear

    THE LIFT IS IN!!! :D:cool::D

    Using the lift at work made the job super easy. All went in without problems. Spacers up front, diff drop, and aal in the rear. It's measuring about a 3 3/4" lift in the front, and about 2" lift in the rear.

    Rims will be going BLACK in the spring!!

    took some shots - but getting to dark... will take some more tomorrow!!

    Now, to see about finishing the grille, tweaking the FJ predator bars to fit, adding a light bar or bull bar with 4 lights or so, and adding bumper fog lights... and who knows what else!!

    Anyways here are a few of the shots!
