Set of 4 37x14.00-17LT Bias tires

Tread depth is just a hair over .5" that works out to a little over 75%. Tires are in good shape just normal trail blemishes, no gashes to speak of.

Looking for $500

Yo Nutcase, ;)

What tires did you end up going with? How well did you like the Iroks? I'm thinking of doing 39.5 Iroks but I've never tried them....still stuck on grooved TSL's..:rolleyes:

I loved my last tires they just weren't big enough, they really hooked up well in all conditions, they never seemed the best for any situation but the flat worked everywhere. Only problem I had was I lost a lot of beads but that is the fault of the small sidewall.

I'm now rocking the 39.5x13.50-17LT IROK. They are true size, run just under 40" They still need some time to break in as they werenít really flexing as much as they should and I was running 6lbs, but I only got one day of wheeling in before I blew my t-case in half. The 17s are also 8ply instead of 6 making things a little stiffer. I think 3-4lbs with staun locks will be the hot ticket. I wheeled with a couple of folks that were running the maxxis creepy crawlers and those things looked really really tough with really deep tread. I think the story with them is it takes them a long while to break in then they start hooking well. Hard to beat a TSL, but their sidwalls just arenít tough enoughÖ. I think there were 2 or three we had to fill with plugs in SODAK

Trouble is TSL's get wide when they get taller. 39.5 TSL's are 15" wide! I can get smoken deals on Swamps so I think I'm gonna throw down on some IROK's. Thanks doood!

I donít fully know, I have yet to drive it not in low-range. But I can only assume it isnít too good, 4.11 diffs, coupled with a slow wide shifting 420, big tires. I do know that my gearing isnít as low as it used to be, I had to relearn how to drive and really lug my engine in some cases but overall I am very happy with how it works. I think a 2UZ may be in the picture eventuallyÖ.

Kipper for now, Iím just going to stick a t-case back together, bring a spare and run it. I was considering converting my motor to propane and doing mini truck dual cases with a split case, but that all revolves around keeping the old trusty F. I donít think Iím ever going to be satisfied with 100hp, so Iím investigating the possibility of a modern powerplant, but until that time comes Iím just going to rock what I got. It works fine it just isnít as much fun as it could be.
