Got to wheel with it this week at Windrock. Works fabulous.

Too bad the driver doesn't know how to winterize his motorhome! :rolleyes:

Then while still cruising down the highway, Jim shouted some obscenities at the lady, had the wife take over the steering wheel, (still cruising down the highway) and he climbed out the roof hatch of the motor home, jumped onto the trailer in tow, unstraped the tracker, drove it off the trailer, and ran over the lady's car, and some other car that just happened to get in the way. I didn't think running over the 2nd car was really all that necessary, but whatever.

And then he killed a man in Reno. Just to watch him die.

I talked my dad into some decent tires :thumb: they are 39" at 5psi

yes, 60's are in the plans very soon. I still need a chevy front for $600-$700 as a complete axle or just the housing, knuckles, spindles and hardware... how complete depends on price.

Looks good.

Now to get the groover out. :thumb:

Have you cycled the suspension yet? Looks a little tight for full stuff. And for the record, I still like my Iroks.

why would we groove them? they will work great just the way they are.

what good is cycling it going to do at this point? it was designed for a true 38" diameter tire with 1" of clearance around it... there is 4" from the tire to the fender in the pic. the one exception is at full stuff and full lock flexed out, there is some sheet metal behind the headlight that will touch lightly.... not a concern for low speed crawling.

And, it's done with the bump stops simulated @ solid height, which won't happen. In reality, in slow speed crawling the stops get compressed approx half their height so I actually loose ~ 1" of shock travel.
And when phase two commences, i.e. D60, I'll have some options to move things around. Will have to see. I want to see how 5.89's are with them to know if I need to go to 6.17's.

The trepadors measure between 36.75 and 37.0 at 3-4 lbs. of air on 8.5" rims with no load on them. You'll love the tires in everything but deep snow (you dont have any worries about that though :lol: )

Thanks for the props! :thumb:

Yeah, that would be mine.

It's not going to look as unique as the 2 trackers for sure. I still have a shitty steel body that will probably be replaced next winter.

But at least it's a jeep. :thumb:
