RE: AA1PR Longterm build
Got the new ram mount for my old Delorme PN 20 finally installed, I installed Topo 7.0 on it
Mounted it on the center console where it can still see the sky but is not blocking my field of view when driving

RE: AA1PR Longterm build
Decided I wanted to hide another geocache up in the mountainsso off I went to a spot I scoped out on the delorme topo program

I decided it was going to be a guardrail cache, these seem to be popular among the geocachers

I then did some sight seeing on a trail I wanted to do during the 2013 GMC4x4.com Tour, the road was snow covered and loaded with ice underneath the rig keep wanting to slide its rear over the crown of the road and into the snow banks, but got some good shots off the cell I thought

RE: AA1PR Longterm build
My 285/70/17's BFG TA KO's are almost 6 years old if you can believe that come July 2018

I'm wondering with the 2.5" leveling keys up front and the 4" in the rear does anyone think I could get away running 35's 315/70/17's?

Ive been looking at these treadwrights ~ https://www.treadwright.com/products...=2264688984085

or just go still with more: 285/70/17's in these Nankang N889 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PFICUVO...v_ov_lig_dp_it

or these Westlake SL369 Off-Road Radial Tire https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PFIJY86...v_ov_lig_dp_it

which look just like the kelly safari tracs I had originally on it

any help, ideas or suggestions welcome

The links don't work for me for some reason. Is there anyone local that would let you borrow a 35? I think it will be fine with some fender trimming.

Personal opinion I think those Nankang's will drive you crazy on a long trip. Never owned a set of Treadwrights, but I hear great things about them. I plan on purchasing a set for the dually later this year, unless I find a deal on something else before then lol. Not sure what your budget is but check out the General Grabber AT2, and Goodyear Duratrac. Both are long lasting on the highway and do well off road as well.

I was considering the SL369s for my Subaru. They seem to have decent-ish reviews but I can't find whether or not they are any good in the snow

I have those 215/85 treadwright mudders with decent tread you can have. A set of 5. Just to give it a shot to see if they work.

i too thought about the road noise LOL

my old kelly safaritracs had the same pattern, not bad all around
I see hankook has a version tire using the same tread pattern too
Yea if i go with a bit more expensive tire it'll be the KO's again or maybe KM2's this time
