    yes pretty damn far away from AL. I've ended up in Atlanta a few times but that's really the only place we work consistently in the Southeast.

    I wanted to use those universal mounts for the factory adapter but after looking at your pictures I'm not sure that will work. What size bolt fits through the sleeve?

    Which factory adapter? My factory adapter uses much smaller bolts, like 3/8" IIRC.

    The bolts are 1/2" and I had to bore the hole in the plate to 7/8" or 13/16" (can't remember) for the sleeve to pass through.

    I would check and see what ORD offers, I've heard they sell some, maybe they're smaller?

    went with the Nitto Trail Grappler so I can still go to the mall.

    Need to figure out rims, I'll work on that later, maybe a deal will come up.

    Good to hear, I've never really had them offroad other than light trail riding in my buddies truck. Plenty of positive reviews from other wheeler's that I value their opinion too.

    Yeah, not the most hardcore off-road tire but they do very well off-road and the road manners are great. Average on longevity.

    I want to drive to the trail heads and camping which is 50-65 miles each way without killing a set of tires on the highway. It's a compromise.....

    Well at least I know that I'm ruled out then...:D

    IIRC, ORD had a pair of those tires on one of their UA trucks that we wheeled with at BB15, and I remember they did better than I anticipated. Better than my boggers were doing in some instances (but we all know slick rock is not the place for boggers to be :doah:)

    Non-trailer queen opinions that was :rotfl: otherwise I would have ordered pitbulls a while back at 50% off. I just didn't want to drive them on the street.....

    Stephen is one of the opinions I was referring to.

    17"

    I have 16's, so I'll probably flip those with the 37" Interco radials I have on them now.

    Sweet. I also prefer to have my parts delivered to work. I don't get to see my wife's deliverys at home so why should she see mine?
