    When I bought my truck the Mall Terrains had over 90% tread on them, but they were 10 years old (that would be 10 years in the South Texas sun). Slight cracking in the sidewalls leads to larger cracks, which leads to finding out that your stock jack doesn't work. At least I found out at home. :grin:

    So, I replaced the the front two tires with Dunlop Radial Mud Rover
    32-1150R-15 and I bought a new 48" hi-lift jack today.

    I will now spend the next week or so burning the back two tires off. :D

    I know it is irresponsible and I am sorry.

    At least you found out that the jack did not work when you are at home instead of out in the middle of nowhere like it always happens to me.

    I ran a few sets of Dunlop M R's and like em alot for a DD. I still have a set of 33's on my 97 DD. They do ok on wet streets, but the wet street performance will fade as they wear, like most mud grips. They do pretty well in the mud for a very street friendly tire.
