    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a tall lift, big mud tires, winch, and a light bar simply do not.
    Why buy a Wrangler if you don't take the top and doors off?

After calling all his distributors, he found out they none had any stock and it appears that they may not be in the pipeline due to something on the manufacturing side. So, he found a list of similar tires (some of which were in stock, some of which were not) and gave me that list. I can't believe how much effort he put into finding me a tire that would work. I am going to research other tires and find another tread that I like. Once I figure that out I am calling him back. Thanks for the lead.

    First off does ecgreen have a vast knowledge of all the off road shops and the good people who do this kind of work? My goodness. And second of all people a little further north in our state seem a bit more happy to help people. I learned of this when I moved just a bit north and the people were so nice and very pleasant to talk to (not everyone I get it) but a lot of people on northern NH are some of the nicest Peps around. And best of luck to you and finding something that will work for the black beauty(I canít believe I just said that about a dodge)

    In all seriousness, they have amazing customer service. Also, they never complain about modifications. I had my B2 alignment done there and the guy was super psyched about trying to do an old lifted TTB axle lol. He spent awhile on it trying to make sure everything was just right. I just can't say enough good things about that place.

    Mr Gees set me up and mounted my 37s on Friday. They were fast, easy to work with and got the tires balanced nicely. They said the tires took a lot of weight (typical for 37s) but I am vibration free from 0 to 85mph (as fast as I've gone so far). Really happy with their work.
