    I haven't had a back seat in my TJ in 4 years. If I HAVE to haul people in it, they get to sit on the floor, but that's not normal at all. In fact, it's only happened a few times in the 4 years...

    (I apologize... this got out of hand. If you're not interested in tire construction and load rating, don't bother to read...)

    I keep hearing many wishes for LR "D" instead "E". I hate to say...

    Hmm. Most common parts to break... Zip Ties. Honestly, I go through a lot of zip ties... :) In decades of wheeling I've hardly had anything break, but I don't wheel too hard. I think what...

    RememberTheFallen, I can't help but say that I LOVE your truck!! I've long been a fan of that generation crew cab Tacoma. Looks like you have it outfitted well too. And I do like the color. :)...

    If you're already on E-rated tires and you're ok with how it rides, then the 285's will be fine with regards to that.
    Your 9" wide wheels are a bit much either way, but better with 285's than...

    Did you hear that? That was me pulling the trigger on 5 255/85's from tirecrawler.com!! :)

    These are definitely old stock. The 255's were in fact made, and links long ago in this thread listed it in a chart somewhere... This tread pattern was popular in the 90's. I ran a set on a Jeep...

    Crap... I just found Goodyear A/T's on e-pay in quantities of 4 or 6... But now my heart is set on STMaxx... Looks like they're LR D for those of you who believe that it is different from E. ...

    Evidently you got THE sweet deal, as the same tire is now listed on their website at $279/tire... Pays to search and find deals like these!!

    Probably both. :)

    To the OP, I commend your efforts to stop the never ending talk of tires, but Scott is right in that the numbers published by the government tell very little about the real...

    Sounds like the oil is foaming Larry. Are you perhaps missing one of the oil slingers (shields) that may have been before/after the pinion bearings, which allows the fast spinning bearings to whip...

    You probably got passed by a 6-speed running in 5th... The overdrive ratio in the auto is not so good, and dropping to 4th with 5.13's is going to get you more speed, but at like 4500 RPM's, so...

    BLD works on both axles, and is really just brake traction control, so it doesn't care what's in the diffs. The rear LSD you have just means that it takes less brake pressure to move torque to the...

    I'm not sure how the aftermarket ones work, but I made a set for my old Chevy with some hardware store hooks. If you use a stiff short spring on the bottom, you can hook them up when you need them...

    Nice Doc! I trimmed down my table a long time ago to fit the panel location and took the brackets off the ceiling. Like the edges on your 5/8 ply though... Might have to do that! Did you find...

    I think bumper height intakes on trucks are a thing of the past. Since the mid-90's, GM has their intake level near the top of the fender as far as I've seen. I haven't looked at a Dodge since...

    The BEST way to do it is with someone's "zero rate add-a leaf" kit, which is basically lift blocks that you bolt to the spring with a new longer centering pin. (Google it...) That way they can't...
