Did you get this done? Anxious to see some pics!

Cheers
I drop my rig off for the build on Monday, I should have it back by Friday. I'll let everyone know what I think and post some video of road noise.

I'm also currently on a set of 38x13.5 pat's, and am curious about other 38" tires. I also daily drive mine and am up in the northeast, so wet and winter drive ability is important. I wonder how these would handle the rain and snow covered roads.
Having just moved from Socal to Eagle Id, I wanted a mud tire that did well in the snow. I heard these do very good, we'll find out. Here's a snow vid of them.

How are they on rain and snow covered roads? These have grabbed my attention, and am interested in a tire that not only does great offroad, but can handle daily driving in the northeast.

Thanks, and that's a great looking jeep you've got there!

Many thanks , it’s a fun daily for sure.
As for the tires they are good in the rain, no problems at all, good on the highway , we haven’t had any snow yet but Looking forward to testing them out this winter. The pictures don’t do these tires justice . They are insane in person , I’m definitely going to continue to use these on future builds .

It’s a JKS 2 1/2 with HD springs I pulled out of my Mojito JLU which netted me about 4 1/2 inches on the lighter 2 door.

Here's a sneak peak. It's still at the shop waiting for the Maximus Roof rack parts. This has been a massive build. Still waiting for my Squadron Pros, Roof Rack, DV8 inners, DV8 rock skins, gears etc.

The guys at the shop drove it and said they were floored how smooth the ride was with these tires. That jives with everything I've read about them online about their street manners.

Well done sir!

I am really digging this! Please keep us updated as the build is completed and you get some miles on the tires!

Cheers
