Before 285/75R16 and now.... 315/70R17 ... no rubbing so far at even full lock for uturns.. but i'll let you know after our next trip. I need to flex it out. 285's are 33" and 315's are 35's.

Step 3. Ditch the dual spares and get the fuel/water can box mounted back up. Also installed aluminess ladder. Tomorrow i will hopefully get the spare mounted up too.

Is all black cans legal? I thought they had to be red (gas), yellow (diesel) and blue (water) or something like that.

They're military surplus. OD green not black. I've never had a problem with running them here on my rigs before.

Ran them on my Landcruiser..



I need to paint the caps green or black. I think they paint them white so they can get away with selling them for water.

Yep, Coyote Canyon, good eye Herb. I've already re-torqued them twice, need to hit them friday before we leave for the desert. Thanks for the reminder.

Mike, i used quickfists to attach the shovel to the swing out. They have many different sizes and many different uses.
