    So I get the new 38 TSLs on my truck on Friday.
    I am downtown in the tim Hortons drivethru, when I hear on the CB... "can anybody hear me?"
    So I answer him... its one of the Jeep guys from my club. He is out playin in the snow, and really having a hard time. I head his direction not really knowing what to expect from these tires. I turn the corner, snow is about 12" deep. There he is, pushing snow not moving very much at all, trying to climb a 20* hill. So, I drive down beside him, turn around, pull Thumper in front of him, toss him the rope and proceed to drag him back to the road! His CJ-7 is on 36" Buckshots. So, he thanks me, and I go home.
    Around 10pm, the phone rings. Another friend from work... he is in a field and gotten his quad stuck, tried to drive his stock Ford out to get the quad and its stuck. So out I go again... I drive up to this quad, its buried totally in near 18" of snow in an open field and he cant move. So, out goes the rope, and I pull him back to the road to go get his Ford. its about 30 yards into the field, snow up over the front bumper, so I winch him out and head home $20.00 richer and VERY happy with the performance of my new tires! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    If these things work as well on the rocks and in the mud, I will be a very happy camper! /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    Now we are heading out wheeling in an hour, so will get some pics of her performing!
    Later

    If I remeber they are the 38x13x16 right? If so, they are great on rocks, I have mine carpet knife siped and they walk right up rocks.

    I had an open D44 with a funky hub and one tire against a tall vertical rock and the other on ground and it went right up. Of course I didn't want to drive one tire to the top of a five foot tall rock and break something or flip over so I let off the gas and it fell straight down and mushed my fender..... I have a picture somewhere....
