I did think about adding a stop at the first rest area north of the turn pike on 75 for those coming that way. Could make it a 10:45 or so meet time and leave from there by 11:00 if that helps people out.

UPS man delivered 2 of my new tires today. Just tracked my "backordered tires" and they should arrive tomorrow. As long as I can fit all 5 tires in the truck, ill have them mounted friday morning. New tires, new shocks, new trails, new people...... sounds fun!!!

It's doable. In November had the same dilemma but with a child seat too. I had to drop my son off at my my Mom's that morning. He liked looking at the "BIG Tires!" from up close.

I had 4 in the back 1 on the roof. Laid down the 60 side of the 60/40 bench, two tire stacked there. Two more in back standing up. One on the roof. If you can get someone to help put it on the roof it would be a lot easier. These guys are heavy.

Here are some pictures.

I think I'll be good to go for the 21st. Just scrambling trying to find a good....lol...cost effective set of mud terrains. Trying to dissect the specs. Load range D, E. We'll be coming up 75. Running Goodyear Wrangler RT/S's right now.
