I think that tire dealer saw you coming! He wants to sell you everything. If you have the 18" wheels I'd recommend the Michelin LTX M/S2 tires (265/60 R18). They'd do you just fine all year round. Good in snow unless you plan on trekking in the tundra. I'm sure others here might recommend other tires that may do you just as well. The LTX are quiet and smooth on paved roads, and good in snow and mud, but they're probably not for any serious off-roading. By the way, I live on the south shore of Lake Erie, lake effect snow world. We average over 100" of snow a year, with over 200" in the hills south of here where I ski.

That's where I ordered my SRT, as well as Jdb. A few others have taken delivery from them already. Great people there for sure. I've stayed away because I'm already going nuts enough waiting for the train to get here, I don't need to go see any '14s in person

If your JGC has the heavy duty brakes you'll need to stick with 18" wheels...the 17" wheels will not clear the heavy duty brake setups.

Lanky, that's got to be like the slowest train ever. Hang in there, you'll be driving it by the weekend.

I'm a little worried about the Snoman. He's not getting that JNAP love unless MOTS is really behind.

MOTS hasn't said anything and neither has VOTS..I've looked at the people who are supposedly going to the same lot that mine will hit according to Milous, takes 2-8 days to get there. So any day now is my guess. BigWave has an ETA of the 7th and his hasn't moved either..Race is still a dead heat.

When is yours showing up John?

It's been unloaded from the train in Philly, just waiting on a truck. Dealer says Thursday to her, Friday to me. Either way, we're close.

Good luck Sno.

VOTS has me in paint, along with a couple other mid-Atlantic types. I might call in the Russian and French judges to help me out on this race. Maybe Wile E. Coyote too. Not to wish too much harm on you, but maybe your driver will take a wrong turn in Albuquerque?

I'm with you. Looking forward to that first Spring-time drive. Whenever that happens I'll be happy.

I saw my first two '14s on the streets this past weekend -- a white Overland and a black Limited. Both were classy looking. Gotta say the black with the bits of chrome really did look sharp.

I'm thinking Pats, Cathy's thinking Del Frisco's. either way a Crown on the rocks will be involved. This is like giving birth except nobody gets bitten.
