Well today on the way back from class my roommate talked enough **** to get me to lock my 4wd on my Z and go play. I slide off into some monster ruts and had to give my tires and truck a little hell but it was so much fun. I used to offroad the hell out of my 99 Jeep Cherokee, but I was afraid with a little cranking on my torsion bars and 3.73's with the 35's would hurt my truck. I was wondering what do I need to be worried about when bogging with my truck setup like it is. My bars are only cranked to where the front end sits exactly 1" taller then the front so I don't think the angles should be that bad. Also with the HUGE tranny cooler I put on at x-mas I shouldn't have to worry too badly about the tranny either should I? Also I didn't have any binding in the CV's but once I hit the Push button it said it was locked in but I gave it a little gas and then rolled back into the whole and it poped, like it was locking in and then it got fun. Well just wanted to share with you fellas and I am sure I am giong to go back down there in a few.
Now for the tire review on my PowerKings. The tires absolutely have no grip until they really get down in the mud and then they hook up like you wouldn't believe. The center tread just doesn't have what it takes to get it done, not until those side lugs grip and then it just yanks you out of the whole. My roommate (one that convinced me to go after saying I should drive a HONDA) said that his truck with his 285 Dunlop mud rovers wouldn't have had a chance of getting out and our trucks are identical. So overall I am pretty happy with the tires and I hope my truck is perfectly fine.
