A bit of snow wheeling

have to travel far just for winter pictures lol



Stretching the air bags...

Or compressing


I have a video which I am trying to edit but I am new to that but will post one.
Tomorrow I should have more as a bunch of us are meeting for a day of wheeling.

Niiice I like the dura trac tire just haven't priced them out for my truck yet as I would want a 305 or 315 70 17 just to give the truck the look it needs with the lift thats on it

Great pictures Mar - how do you find the Duratrac's on snow/ice?

I was debating on a set for winter because the BFG's I've got now aren't rated for snow, and the Duratrac's are one of the few brands available in the 315/70/17 sizing.

Incidentally, those would look killer on your truck lumberjack!

I think they priced out somewhere around $250 each through Tire Rack....throw in $200 for delivery, plus mounting and balancing and they're not cheap by any means.

Went out with a bunch of wheelers yesterday, (hoping to get some pictures from that), hit one wicked little trail and truck did awesome, thought for sure I was gonna smash into something at times, very amazed.
Tires are very good in snow and trail, ice is ice to me and doesn't really matter which tires you have though these are way better then stock.
Think I blew one of my airbags out back as it wasn't taking air and the rubber is all deform, will be checking it better today.
