Super SWEET! Can you post more detailed close ups of them please? I'd like to see how wide they are close up to see the tread width to side wall ratio. Also, can you post shots of the fender trimming job when your done? Really wanna see how it turns out. Man I really wish you'd been all done before I moved.

Truck specs:2001 D-cab Taco with solid axle conversion, front and rear 65" wide Diamond axles, Tundra 8 inch rear w/ARB, H.P. front w/ARB 30 spline Long's, full floating rear from FROR and blah blah blah, IE lots-a cool stuff.

Are you looking for a picture like this???



Mark sent me that picture because I think we both had the same concerns. BTW I'm getting 37" Trxus also.

Does putting a towel on my seat to cover the holes count as an upgrade?

Thanks Dan, those look pretty good. You'll love the Trxus, I loved my 34's and really like my 38's.

Oh yeah...Got the tires & wheels from Wartoy (Sergio) at 4WheelParts in Texas...Saved some money and picking them up at the Phx warehouse was hassle free. My local Discount Tire supplied the valve stems and mounting for $11 ea. and didn't have any problem adding the #9 lead shot.

Thanks Serg!

I still can't believe how quite these are. Friday I was crusing down the freeway (on rubberized asphalt), windows up, A/C on, and heard a FS Chevy going the other direction like it was a plane flying overhead

I agree, These tires kick arse and I should have bought them a while ago.

I put my first hole in the sidewall on the last trip out............it took a rock shaped like a bayonet, 20 miles an hour at full lock into it at 9psi and it punctured just enough to make a slow leak...........so needless to say I've been impressed with how tough they are. Just make sure you have certs and all is good!

Hey Mark

How's the truck coming along? You going to be ready for wheeling anytime soon? Haven't seen you around, figuring you're tying up the loose ends.

A couple things on the truck, but mostly other stuff around the house. I do believe I have an out-of-round tire that's keeping me below highway speeds....hope to get that taken care of at 4WP this week. I want to be able to keep up with the caravan come this August

Cool. We need to get you some seat time before August so you can whoop it up when you get there.

Mark, what if anything did you do about your leaf springs being shorter than they should have been and thus was your measurement problems? Did you get them to make new ones?

Truck specs:2001 D-cab Taco with solid axle conversion, front and rear 65" wide Diamond axles, Tundra 8 inch rear w/ARB, H.P. front w/ARB 30 spline Long's, full floating rear from FROR and blah blah blah, IE lots-a cool stuff.

I've been meaning to send you the info. The full number for the springs you have is T85F30077F200E112 or E for extended and 112 for 1 1/2" so they were made correctly for the part number ordered. I hope to have the fixed ones in a little bit. I'm filing this under "shiat happens"

Ok, thanks for that info. What Randy from AOR sent me did not have that E112 on the end of the number. Good to know.

How are those tires as far as out-of-roundness goes? That question is open to anyone who owns the Truxus tires. I'd like to get a set myself but am concerned I'll get out of round ones. Might just stick with MT/R's?
