I don't doubt it, I just have a (probably) unreasonable hatred for those tires. Mostly because of a certain mall crawler Jeep group that thinks they're the greatest thing since sliced bread, stemming primarily from 2 people who are essentially sponsored by them and rave about their performance. I'm certainly not a tire expert but I know enough to be dangerous, and that tread design can't possible work as well as they claim, especially in the conditions they claim its prowess in. A sticky is an entirely different animal and I don't doubt that it works decent in that case.

It's been 8 or so years since I've used this thing. It took me a while to remember what I was doing and I still missed my centerline by an inch.

My top is destroyed but it keeps the garbage off me so I'm trying to at least keep it as an option with the cage. At the end of the day I didn't want to put a bar right in front of kids faces, but that was really the only reasonable place to go with my seatbelt bar that allows for a harness on the passenger seat in the future. I could have done some funky stuff to keep the passenger side open but it's all a compromise at the end of the day. The good news is that this isn't my final cage so if I don't like it, I can discuss options with Metrofab to do it differently on the next one.



At some point in the last outing I hit something pretty hard. It bent the corner, split the weld on the tub and pinched the top to the tub. Not a big deal except the waterproof cover I have for future winter wheeling/ice creaming need to use that area. I guess I'm going into the body work business for a couple hours at some point in the future.

I have really struggled wheeling hard and keeping my tub clean enough to install a soft top. It's a hard balance. re the top, one of the best things I ever did was go to an aluminum top for hard wheeling.
