    Planning on going wheeling pretty soon so I finally fixed the front pinion angle issue I had and added some new parts. Decided to check my tire clearance and Ujoints all at the same time so this is what I came up with. I think it is ready....

    Those kreepy crawlers look cool. It looks like a hybrid between MT Baja Claws (on the sidewalls) and a Toyo Open Country Mud Terrain. Those are sick!

    I think Maxxis Makes the best wheelin tires. The trepadores and the kreepy's are just great wheelin tires.

    Yea I have been very pleased with these tires, worth every penny. I have never gotten the kind of traction in mud with any other tires I have ran to include the tsl sx's. Very quiet on the street too.

    Pretty basic actually. I have 4" softride springs on the front with 6 3/4" extended shackles and a 6* bolt in 1" shim to fix the pinion angle, with 13.5" travel shocks and ford shock towers up front. The rear is a 6" softride spring with 13" travel shocks mounted inboard.

    Hmm you run 38.5's like I do. I only got about 10,000 miles out of my MT Baja Claws (bias-ply) and they cost an arm and a leg. If you don't mind me asking where did you get yours and what did they run ya'? 15" rim"

    http://www.nebraskatire.com/lt_truck/creepycrawler.htm When I bought them I paid $299.00 each plus $100.00 shipping .$1299 to the door. Everyone else wanted $450-$489 each for them. Mine are 16's though they don't make the 38.5 in 15 but they do make a 38.
