Re: Hit a deer last night..

Good to hear! I'm looking to get these as well. This is a daily driver so I don't want something loud and annoying on the highway. I'm doing 245/70/17 because I'm stock height. Hoping to do some offroading this summer and I'd love to have these!

You can fit bigger tires on stock height if modify the pinch weld and run wheel spacers with your stock wheels. If you bought new wheels with the proper offset, you wouldn't have to run spacers.

question.. that first pic... are you on a downhill or is your rake that big?? i know you run the daystar with bilstein struts and the longer MLLs... just wondering. doesnt look as drastic in the second picture.. but could be the angle. hard to tell.

Duratracs don't come in a lot of sizes. The next size up is 245/75/17 I believe.

Re: Hit a deer last night..

I hit a 300 pound black bear going 50 mph last summer. it broke the bulb in my right fog light, cracked my bumper cover, and as my right front tire drove over its legs wrapped up and smacked my passenger door like limp spaghetti. This dented the lower half a little around the chrome flashing. I looked in my rearview and that SOB limped off the road and was gone. These jeeps are actually pretty darn tough. It would have destroyed a car. My damage look just like Alpine's.

Anyone else have a jeep vs wild animal story?

Re: Hit a deer last night..

I don't have a story about my Jeep, but when I had my Mazda3 a buck came out of the woods and t-boned the passenger side of my car. I was going about 50. Antlers impaled both doors and totalled them. Thankfully, no one was in the passenger side. When I looked back, it stood up, shook its head, and ran off.
