Hey everyone, well finally got out to try the new 265/75/R16 BFG AT's yesterday in the Bridger's. All I can say about these tires (which I am sure many of you already know) is WOW. What a difference, granted my Toyo AT's were pretty worn, over 45,000 miles, but the BFG's are a huge improvement! The Toyo's were a good tire, lasted forever on the road (I still had tread left when i replaced them), but they left me stuck in the snow and mud a number of times off road, once so deep my K&N got so caked in mud it was pulled into my air intake! Anyway, I thought I would put some pics up, it makes for a little bit more exciting thread in my opinion. These tires ripped through everything we threw at them, slick mud, loose rock and a bunch of snow. We easily made it all the way (7 mi +) to the lake and had no issues in any of the terrain. The BFG's cleaned their tread impressively and felt extremely stable. On the road I noticed no difference between them and the Toyo's but off road they, in my opinion, are a much more aggressive tire. I felt comfortable pulling off for others in snow that would have surely stopped the Toyo's. Anyway, maybe not the review you guys were looking for but I am stoked on the new shoes and recommend these tires to anyone in the market...oh yea, I picked them up for 154.00/tire installed at COSCO, after looking around a bit this seemed like a great price! Hope you guys like the pics.
Also, has anyone had experience with bud built accessories? They make a skid plate that fits under the ARB filler plate to protect the Taco's front end (http://www.budbuilt.com/new/ifs.html) and I am considering purchasing one. Are skid plates worth the money? They look super cool and seem like they provide a good amount of protection but 250 bucks, I guess a bashed up IFS would cost a lot more to fix. Anyone have input, I would love to hear it. Thanks all! Cheers.
I am having trouble uploading some pics, any advice on posting pictures?
