    Since I have no idea when it may have been replaced, replaced the PCV valve and grommet tonight. Looked a bit oily in there. Think I will add an oil catch can - why not?

    Thanks, I think I'm going to stick with the KM2s. I've been happy with them so far.

    I am running 15" Alloy wheels no steelies for me. I am not trying to change your mind about what to run. Just pointing out that there are a ton of good off road tires in 15"

    Seems as of late every wheel that I like comes in 17s as the smallest.

    And I'm retarded because I forgot to mention the fact that I can't fit 15s anyway, I have tundra calipers :facepalm: derp

    Yeah I'll figure out something. I remember it was a PITA to find replacement tires for our crawler a while back to fit 15s. A lot of people threw a fit, since they had expensive 15" wheels with beadlocks, so some companies brought some back due to "popular demand"

    Yes, and honestly it still has a Ton of guts, I noticed zero difference from my 285's

    Hey I just uploaded a bunch of pics go to the last page of my build thread.
    As far as a lift I'm running Icon extended coilovers with Camburg UCA's I'm front, all pro expo and Fox 2.0 12" remote resi in rear.

    They hit the firewall which will be tubbed soon, they also hit the fender at full lock and make that sweet flapping noise when the nobbies hit the fender. KM2's are awesome tires, can't go wrong.

    Hmm dang, I was hoping I wouldn't have to mess with the firewall. Might have to stick with the same size then.

    ive done alot of research on this Lauren... general consensus is: 35s and larger with ifs needs firewall tubbed, and atleast 4.56s.... hence why i still rock the 285s. plus i go everywhere the second gens with 35s go:p

    But these are "34s" :spy:

    And my 285s measure to be 31s :( I'm living a lie :eek:

    I know it's not a huge deal. But I like the beefy look :D and I'm just tossing around the idea right now.

    Your KM2s measured to be 33 brand new? Or your Duratracs?
