Only when it was snowing up on Drummond. They did great in the snow but not as well on the rocky sections. The problem is that the are probably the best tire going for the price and availability. My red label krawlers are very hard to get now. I did just read on pirate that the 42" sticky irok is out.

I didn't even get it on all fours yet and changes are being made already. Pics to come, when this damn headache goes away ... I'm still in my jams.

Rear axle perches are being swapped with lift perches from TNT, wheel centers from Greatlakeoffroad are in and ordered new front stainless brake hoses (30") from Inline Tube in Shelby: one day shipping anywhere in MI.

I'm thinking a prerun for Sno*Blind January 12th or 19th for anyone interested. PM me if interested on going.

If I get motivated enough I might end up in the barn tonight and snap some more pics of it on the jack stands.

Here's a couple pics ... as you can see, it hasn't moved very far.

The wheels are ready to get welded, then the inners are going to be sent to get sand blasted this weekend.

This weekend I'll be cutting the perches I just welded on the rear off and putting on the new ones.

Wheel centers from Greatlakeoffroad ... I wish now I would have gone w/ the lady centers, but the "Project Manager" (wife) didn't like 'em.

The wheels are ready to get sand blasted and yet ... more pics of it on jackstands. I couldn't wait and had to mount one wheel in front to see how it fit. No more clearance issues ... she's going to be pretty wide, but she'll still fit on the trailer!! :tonka:

The wheels are finally done. I actually rolled it tonight.

I still have the rear axle to redo, but it's looking like mid-next week.
