1. After four years of owning this truck, I almost can't believe its back on the original tires that were on this Blazer. I've tried out a number of tires on this truck, including BFG's similar but newer mud-terrain, the KM2, and none have seemed to work as well as this tire in the dirt or on the highway. Yes, I am stating that this particular truck drives better on 39-inch extreme Krawlers than on 40-inch KM2s.
As for wheels, I've ended up using some powdercoated Cepek DC-1s with Staun internal beadlocks. The original Centerline I.C.E. three-piece wheels that were on this truck are stillused for some race tires that go on for prerunning duties.
