Dave,

Just checked my email and saw the photos. Looks sensational with the tyres and that bonnet scoop looks oh so mean.

Good choice of colour LOL.

Cheers,

Jim.

Load rating D on the BFG's from memory. Treat the BFG's with 'consideration' when mobile in the bush and you will be rewarded. Though pricey, I've settled on them for the Jack (5.5 yrs now) and the new Campomatic trailer and have not had a flat yet.... but I am conservative at the wheel. Enjoy the new chariot !

Dave,

Can you have a look at the tyre placard (should be located in the driver's side door jam) and please let me know what it is. My petrol Jerry is 106 T. I'd be interested what the diesel is rated. I couldn't fut the BFG's (or many others) to mine because of the S speed rating.

I also strongly recommend you measure the height of your car before the suspension goes in. I did it at the front and rear bumpers and at the wheel arches (and even took photos as proof). Gave me a comparison point after it was fitted. After it was installed I hadn't got the promised lift due to the boys who fitted it being slack. The Store Manager, Rick (a qualified mechanic) then did the job properly himself and it is great.

Cheers,

Jim.

Hey there,

I've been running those same sized BFG AT's for the last 30,000km and have found them quite good.

Keep an eye on your rotations and pressures, otherwise I've found the front end quite harsh on the shoulders. Need to keep the pressures up and rotate regularly between front and back.

I've had BFG AT's on several past 4wd's (Patrol, Jeep Wrangler), and have found them a good compromise tyre.
