Many thanks for the hospitality of the club. I didn't take many photos but here they are from Moab Rim and Behind the Rocks...

Clayton's rig was really hooking up. He had no issues. I'm considering a set of those 285 Toyo's. They looked extremely beefy.

They are the the Toyo Open Country M/Ts 285/75R16. This was the first trip on them and they worked really well compared to the A/Ts I used to have. I really need to get them down to Chokecherry to really compare them. Pretty tame on the highway, more noise than the A/t's but not really that noticeable.

Edit to plug Jeremiah's tires also. He just got the 37" Cooper STTs and they performed well.

They are...I love mine but they are REAL heavy. My mounted 285s were about 10lbs heavier per tire than Hulk's MT MTZs in the 315 size. They wear decent for a MT, got almost 40k miles out of my 285s that are now e-test tires. Sipe them and they'll quiet down quite a bit and do better in the snow as well. And, for me at least, I never had any issues with them chunking due to the siping. I can't say the same about my GY MTRs on the 40 that I siped

So it was you telling me this. I couldn't remember. Treeroot also told me he had a put a ton of miles on them. But, I don't think he likes them for some reason.

Thanks to everyone that participated! Great outing! Sure glad everyone made it home safely.

My friend Tom from Madison, WI that was along called me today saying he's still blown away from the whole trip.

I'll see if I can find a pic or two that's not already posted.

One complaint is that they tend to "wander"...I didn't notice it as much with my 285s but the 315s seem to follow the road a lot...Not having tried any other 315s I don't know if it is due to the tire or just something that happens due the bigger size. I remember my old 35x12.5 ATs on my Toyota pickup followed the road so I'm chalking it up to size, specifically the width.

Sorry for the hijack guys! Back to posting up pictures so I can about what I missed

Here's a few pics as well. Having a wife that's a photographer usually yields plenty of pictures! I too appreciate the hospitality of the crew! Dave for cooking and keeping the coffee cups full in the morning. Scott for leading, training & great communication. Also Corbet, Randy & Farnahm great leading, and helping figure out the right lines. I definitely had a great time, and great experience getting a better feel for the truck. It was great getting to know you all, I look forward to the next time.
