Well I checked out all my options checked all the brands I know of and as much I as don't want to go smaller then a 285/40/r20 in the rear, I think I will drop to a 275/40/r20 as that leaves me more options.

I WAS gonna go back to nitto 420's, but for the price and having better specs then the 420's. I will run a 255/45/20 and 275/40/20 tire size.

I have looked at:

Goodyear, Nitto, General Tire, Perelli, Michelin, BFGoodrich, Delinte, Firestone, Bridgestone, Continential, Cooper Tire, Dunlop, Hankook and so on.

And now to reveal it all....

I will go with General Tire's G Max AS-03. In a 275/40/20 they priced at 181ea. and is a fair amount less then the Nitto's with a higher UTQG rating
Nitto 420's UTQG: 420
GT AS-03 UTQG: 480

Unfortunately no, Only 275/40/20 and its the biggest tire on the GT site in a 40 profile, but for the cost, ill run 10mm narrower in the rear

Re: Project "Six Shooter" Build Thread

I like the challenger style. I think with the antivenom you would get to much water in the engine compartment if it rained. Unless the vents are fake

The anti venom has functional vents, but no worries bro, the three-sev. sits about 8 inches behind the vents. they act more as heat extraction...

The 3.7 sits between these lines:

Both hoods are fully functional too. the challenger hood has functional air scoops and dumps it over the filter. I hope they do bring it back, then it will be harder to pick a hood.

Re: Project "Six Shooter" Build Thread

I like both as well..would definately be a tough choice. From looking at the pics, it seems that the challenger hood has a better fit on the jeep than the anti venom. Just my perspective.
