Looks like the verdict we be new. I have decided to go with a 4Xpro or Off Road.  With the learning experience I got from current rig, I like the feature of the 4XPro.   The most important point is Mrs. . Ghostrider approves.
 will   go with a Lift 3 inches of course and go to 285 tires just to start.

I am excited! A little more savvy this time and I can wait to return Home to Arizona.

first steps this Saturday.  Replaced Tranie, Transfer and engine oil. I note an improvement of gas mileage thus far. Oil was bad looking in the Trans and the Transfer.

Next Radiator and pumpkins.

Head Light Adjusrment.
« Reply #3 on: June 15, 2014, 07:25:19 AM »
I noticed after all these years adjustment screw behind the Head lamp assembly. Now if I tweak right or left can I expect to have a up or down beam affect??? 

I have always been disappointed with the poor factory lights that come with the X?

Question on 285
« Reply #4 on: July 06, 2014, 02:44:14 PM »
I have looked and looked again on the subject of up to 285.   Like all sizes there is various configuration, I know I want the switch, and I was thinking to go back to old faithful 285 BFG KO and this time go with a D rating. I  the lift so that is nota issue.

May be more of a better cross of AT and Street?
Gear options to adjust for the bigger tires.

Need some honest input. ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

I ran those exact tires for several years (before going to 315 KM2s).  With the 285s, I didn't feel that I needed to change gearing (I have the OR model with the 3.36 gears).

That being said, I do eventually want to go to 4.56s now that I have the 315s.

Asking about tire life on an off-roading tire is like asking about mpgs on a race car :p

Yea you are correct. I am also looking at Copper generals  AT. I looked at their mudders  last time as well. So all of that being said. 285 R70-16 Erange. I would be interested in c or D range if they are out there.

I think the trick is to go with a less aggressive tread patter  like mudders. I saw a FJ today with 285 and looked very good with out being over bearing.

I went with a more aggressive AT tire rather than an MT, I have the Nito Terra Grapplers, and I am very happy with them.

Front Springs!
« Reply #13 on: July 13, 2014, 04:17:47 PM »
I am thinking about replacing my front sprints and Nissan. My local Nissan Dealer in Coral Springs looked at me like a stun deer. I am looking for a little  more stiffer with my front bumper, Iron Bull.   I do have Bil's all the way around so the shock and strut issue is done.

May be PRG?

Thanks for the help!

With the desert terrain we run, good ATs will do better then some MTs.  We have no mud, and rocks in Sedona give good traction.  It's the loose sand and loose dirt/gravel that can be an issue, not sure how MTs perform in that situation vs ATs.
