    On the jeep they are great. On other vehicles I do not see the point. The BFGs I use are still very highly rated for off-road use, and the All-Terrains are very good in snow and rain. I'm not into bling or rice on my jeep - just functionality, man. HAHAHA!!!

    My old TJ has some very good axles with solid-AF lockers and hardened alloy shafts, upgraded U joints, big brakes, etc. The front is off a 1998 MJ so it is high pinion Dana 30, which is stronger and has more clearance and when set up correctly is better in many ways than the fake Dana 44 made for the Rubicon.

    I have only had to winch myself out of any messes due to tires in thick, soupy mud, and that was with the AT tires. I have never once been stuck in anything with the MT tires. May not be sexy, but hella good performers. :birgits_tiredcoffee

    '91 Mazda 323 hatchback. It made about 80 horsepower, but also weighed less than a ton. No matter how much I wailed on it, it wouldn't get less than 30mpg. I was way too ambitious and tried to make my own interior panels and headlights, with varying degrees of success. In the end it succumbed to frame rust (the mount for the rear trailing arm was completely gone) and my brother and I rallied it around the farm and woods until it overheated and died.

    I also had way more fun than I should have with my '95 Grand Marquis, but the open diff made it get stuck in places the Mazda thrived. I think I'm kind of over V8s after four years with that car.

    Don't let the gutless FoMoCo 4.6 ruin V8's for you. I'm a firm believer in real push rod, cam-in-block V8's and the torque they make, but those 2 valve SOHC 4.6's are damn near useless power wise without forced induction.That being said, they are definitely one durable/reliable family of motors.

    Not around here. I have winched out a lot of folks, and they all had different tires, with Toyo being in the mix. Tires help. Skill rules, though. Skill always wins. And skill comes with experience. Skill does not come with tires. HAHAHA!!!
