    I cut down 3 LR E 245/75R16 MT/R's in ONE hour on trails I've run many times before. S#!t happens. All three were on a wet day, when the tires were good and wet. One tire went to a chunk of angle...

    Hahah. Well, I think your concerns are NOT well founded... The sidewall on this tire is plenty strong to hold up 3650lbs, or it wouldn't be rated that way, bump or no. I don't think there are even...

    If traction is low, or expected to be low, 4wd helps keep things moving. Running 4wd on pavement is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be unless you're talking about turns in paved and dry...

    I don't think I'd call it unsafe, but less than ideal. You'll probably get a little more treadwear in the center than normal, and have to run a lower pressure to get full tread contact, but on the...

    Yeah, I'd suggest going with one of the fitted aftermarket vinyl floor alternatives. I tried using pond liner in a truck once and it sucked. The bare floor was better. :)

    I'm not sure those tables even exist for most tires... You may be forced to do something as drastic as running the so called "chalk test" like the rest of us... :)

    By most estimations, it looks like the LM7 may actually weigh LESS than your 4.0L, though not a lot less. If you can find an aluminum block 5.3L you can drop almost 100lbs vs. the 4.0L! I haven't...
