Pics of new tires

Hey all...I haven't visited in a while but I just put some new tires on the 90 and thought I would share a few photos. Good to see that the board is still very much alive and active. Thanks for the steering stop adjustment diagram...it definitely came in handy!

Oh, the tires are 285/75 Toyo Open Country MT's if anyone is interested.

Thanks for the comments. The winch bumper is a combination of 2 factory options that I rigged together.

No lift on the truck...yet. So I expect some rubbing at severe articulation.

I will say that these tires are amazingly quiet for MTs. In fact, they replaced BFG ATs and it's very hard to tell the difference until you hid 75 - 80 and only then is there a very slight whine. Not that I can hear much at that speed with the top off anyway.

Those look nice. Are you from (or near) the Madison Park / downtown Sea corridor, by chance? We periodically see a really nice white ST around the area....

Hi Garth, I used to live downtown (2nd and Pike) but have since moved out to West Seattle. Don't know if it's me you've seen but I'm definitely running around town quite a bit.
