    It's gettin' to where it's pointless to build an off road rig. Just buy a used log skidder and hit the trails! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Of course. Especially if you are running a 700R4, and have about 4" of lift. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    As a pre-emptive measure:

    NO there is NOT enough lift....YES you WILL HAVE TO CUT YOUR FENDERS.

    Re: 49\" Iroks on 17\" Wheels

    yeah, i dunno about those iroqs... they seem like a VERY expensive tire that is designed in such a way that you'll have to replace them a LOT. With so little tread (not depth, I mean the low # of lugs!), they cant last toooo long. All of that is fine if u rock crawl professionally and have sponsors and chit... for me, if I was gonna get an extreme-sized tyre, I'd go with michelins...
