    Sounds like a good plan. I wouldn't have gone with the Claws though. They seem to wear fast. You were wanting this as a tow rig, mild wheeler right? I would go with more of a mud terrain.

    well i decided any big tire isnt going to do well on the road so i scored a set of 35's on 16" rim. i will use those when i co camping or tow the trailer. i want a large aggressive tire for looks and primarily mud as i live on a farm and incur mud often. the 35's were cheap enough(100) and i dont mind changing them
