    new 37\" shoes came in

    The UPS driver just dropped off me new shoes (37x12.5 16) I'm as giddy as a school girl.

    Somebody has been doing some more fender trimming also.

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    Yeah!! Well I'm as jealous as a school boy!! LOL!
    Congrats! I'm still trying to get enough done to my Blazer to be able to start ordering parts! Just can not seem to get enough time in a week, thanks in big part to all the &%$#@ snow we've been getting. Hope to be able to start order parts in the next few weeks. Of course we'll expect a write up and record of how they're wearing. I've settled on the same tires except I'm going to get some custom wheels made and run 37x12.5R15

    Can't wait and again, congrats!

    Wait till you install them..you're just gonna love the way they run..We're running 33x14.50x15s on my wife's Jeep and it feels like we're driving on air.

    Do your neighbors ever think you are crazy taking pictures of things like tires and axels? I wanted to document my header, dual exhaust install and my wife said she would leave me if I ever took a picture of a muffler...

    Steve,

    That scene loooks all too familiar to me also. Did yours come UPS or truck freight? Glad to see you join the 37" club. You will like having these tires. I love my 37" Boggers, but I need to get out and test them. I am going this weekend finally.

    Re: new 37\" shoes came in

    hey coloradok5. what made you go with the 12.50 rather than something wider? just wondering.. I have the 35 12.50 bfg mudders and it seems like I could have gone with something a little fatter.

    Let me guess, military surplus?

    I have driven HUMVEE's with both, and I would have to say go with the 37x12.5R16.5 Wrangler MT's. Much better than the RT II's. Marines abuse the hell out of them, and I've seen plenty of HUMVEE's break, but never the tires.
