Yep, been up that way twice with Bill Burke. Once with me driving, and once with the wife driving.

Adventureduo,

Can you tell a difference in the ride quality going from the 285's to the 315's? Be curious to know.

Marc

I can tell a huge difference. However, please don't base your decision on me.. the 285's that were on the truck were 5 years old and cracked/ready for separation. So any tire upgrade would have been noticed.

Much better.... all the chrome is gone, spare is mounted and everything matches... very happy with the transformation.

Looks awesome Dave! I'll be afraid to get it dirty, even though he is "Sandbox".

Q's; Which ClampTite did you use for your shovel and what type of paint did you use for the Jerry cans?

LOL, its loaded and ready to head out right now as i type. We are leaving for the desert in 6 hours We should be pretty stealth with the black and tan. The yellow TJ may blow our cover though

I used this quickfirst http://www.sierraexpeditions.com/index. ... etail&p=90 back to back (so 2 pairs).

The paint is just generic "sand" color. Nothing special.
