    Keith,

    Didn't you buy the 38.5" Super Swamper SX tires for your rig a while back. If so, how did you like them. What all did you break with the 1/2 ton stuff while wheeling Tellico? Just curious.

    Thanks,

    Neil

    Well, I'm not Keith, but yes he has the 38.,5x14.5x15 TSL SX's. From talking with him, he likes them just fine on the trail, but has to drive his rig every day on the street to work and school, so the road milage is not very good. As far as parts broken, so far that I know of its a pair of Warn Front axle shafts (the ujoint took the ears) and a ujoint or two, the c/v in his front driveshaft took a dump, dont know if thats tire related or not.

    See the Attn Atlanta Guys thread, I took them out to a small trail last night and Keith broke his AGR Steering box and tore or pinched off an extended stainless steel front brake line /forums/images/icons/grin.gif . His rig is in my backyard right now, what you want to know about it... I got some great parts here for sale and cheap too!

    They are great. I'm getting another set soon. They wear fast but love the look and performance. I would really like to have them as trail only and run a street set of tires. If you use them as daily drivers then plan on less than one year on them
