    Switching to Military Tires

    Yes. But it does get me from A-B before the roads are clear and if I do slide off, I'm sure I can get back up somehow. I just have to remember to drive slow and make all changes to throttle and clutch SLOWLY.

    Switching to Military Tires

    Wow, and I've heard so much about the Blizzak's. My BFG's don't feel very good in the snow. I had to drive in 4wd today and with the lockers, all of the little unpredictable manerism scare the crap out of me. I'm definitely going to sipe the hell out of these when I get them. My next tires...

    Switching to Military Tires

    Mace: Are you refering to the RT's or the OZ's? Woody: Are you running the Kedge Grip versions? If not, these should be pretty much the same tire.

    Switching to Military Tires

    I've looked at Treadwright in the past. I usually don't see tires in stock. Looks like they do have the 16.5's though. I really like the Kedge grip idea and have told other people about it in the past. However, the tires I am getting are $125 ea vs. the $205-215 for the Guard Dogs. EDIT: I...

    Switching to Military Tires

    The biggest complaints I have heard are weight and compound. I'll be stuck with the weight and can't really avoid it much except for using the lightest rock rings I can find or not using any at all. I'll be running the 24-bolts. As for the compound and grip, I may end up grooving them so that...

    Switching to Military Tires

    I've looked all over the net for reviews and they haven't been too great. The best part is always the price. However, I haven't found much info on the new BFG Baja's or the new Goodyear MT/R's. I drive an '85 4Runner with a turbo'd and intercooled 3L diesel with 35's. I was running 4.88's...

    I loved the 4.88's and 35's with the 22re. Then I swapped to a turbo'd 3L and it was even better. Now, the 3L is running around 3k rpm on the highway. With the 4.88's I could get low to mid 20's. This last take I got around 17 mpg. I didn't figure that small of a jump would make such a...

    I'm probably going to go with 37's because they seem like they would fit nicely. I'm on 35's now and have been for years. I recently broke my rear pinion and decided to go up to 5.29's. Now it seems like the little diesel I have in it is just screaming on the highway at 65. I'm burning more...

    new guy from midd tennesee!

    Did you end up picking this up? I'm not familiar with the 2rz, but the 3rz seems to be a great engine. I'm guessing that the 2rz was carburated and adapted for LP. $3500 is a great price if you got it. There's that much in the axles and t-cases.

    building a rock crawler

    I run a yota...could you please explain why you want to run dual shocks? I usually only see that on show trucks for flash effect.

    I plan on taking pictures when I can, but being alone usually prohibits too much picture taking. I'll have to tag along with someone else sometime. This will be a shakedown run for me. I just went from 4.88's to 5.29's and haven't had them out yet. I also did some suspension work. My...
