Can you do me a favor and measure those tires diameter mounted on a wheel (side to side to take the weight deflection out of the picture)? Please and thank you. Looking into that size as an "almost" full size spare for brief/emergency use.
I stopped by my shop and measured today and they are right at 34" maybe the are 34.2 like the spec says.

Did nearly 2000 miles roundtrip north out of Colorado Springs up through Steamboat, Tetons, and Yellowstone beginning last Wednesday. Lucky enough to celebrate 20yrs with my wife as well. Headed home out the northeast entrance of Yellowstone and back south through Montana and Wyoming. Only saw an LX and 80 during the trip and it was on the way back nearing Denver.....Come on guys get out there and explore!

Went over to the Ouachita National Forest to camp and wheel. We ended up getting bored of the tight tree trails/gravel roads and saw that Hot Springs, AR was 40 miles away. Went to look up prices for the park and saw that the Southern Cruiser Crawl was going on. Ended up driving there for the afternoon and then headed back to OKC late in the day. Had a couple of weird issues develop that I'll need to diagnose. The 3FE was intermittently struggling to start up. I'm not sure what was causing it to back fire and sputter until I rev'd it to 1500-2000 rpms for 3-4 seconds but I cleaned the air filter and checked for vacuum leaks. And my AC clutch locked up. Since getting back to Oklahoma it hasn't done it since....

really like those tires. I am purchasing new tires for my Lexus LX 470, could you tell me the size of the tires on the silver vehicle in this photo. I am also flying to Phoenix on Saturday and would love to see your trucks in person. Anyway, Tire size would be very much appreciated. Thanks, Tom
I'm assuming this silver one 275/70-18

i used the hps kit with no problems so far after 10000 miles. the only piece i didn't use was the phh as i opted to bypass the pipe. its 100X easier to bypass it.
Great to hear! Thx for the feedback. I was going to do the bypass but guess I have a taste for roughness. First time PHH project... so I can check that one off on my bucket list.
