Yeah, it's been out for a couple years. They are currently being sued by a group of enviro wacko Dr's, their intent is to bankrupt them & shut them down completely, because they remove the restrictive emissions on the street legal trucks !!! :lol:

Yeah, I have looked at them. I like the fact that they are designed for heavy 4x4's. Tread pattern looks good but i wonder how long they really last ? Might be worth the coin if they go 50,000 miles ?

They sell 40's too. And yes, the tires are made in Taiwan. They apparently only use rubber from Malaysia and Thailand... no Chinese stuffs :lol:

Their tires are probably just a super hard compound to make them last. FWIW my old Falken AT (the 1st gen) had made in Thailand on them, good tires but were horrible in sand. Had to air down to nearly single digits on my ranger.

I like the show, I just wish they would concentrate more on real world trucks that get used by ordinary, everyday people. I think I can count the # of times I have seen a $100k + pickup truck actually doing real world, everyday work on 1 hand.

35's & 37's are about the max tire for real world, everyday truck use. They would make a lot more money if they came out with a bolt/weld on coil over suspension with LOTS of flex for the Ford & Dodge's & a complete solid axle swap kit for the Chevy/GMC trucks. Maybe not, IDK. But it seems like they would sell more of those than a complete M-RAP frame/axle/tires/t-case, set up. Cool: yes. Heavy Duty: yes. Practical: not at all.

I caught an episode recently. Is the same scripted reality crap that Disco channel is known for these days. The one I watched featured their sales guy working frantically to find a buyer at the last minute for a helicopter they were refurbishing. Miraculously, at the final hour he found a buyer whose corporate logo not only matched the paint scheme but integrated with it perfectly. How's that for luck?

I know Disco has the reality ratings formula figured out, but it bums me out that it's not enough to just have a show about building trucks, or painting helicopters without all the fake scripted drama.

I tried watching my first episode of it last night and couldn't bring myself to do it. It was so fake. Instead of driving a perfectly good 7.3 Ford twenty feet forward, they hooked a crane up to the bumpers and crushed the engine compartment in. Come on. How can these guys even act that dumb, because I know they're smart.

If Disco wanted to pay me that much to act that dumb, I might just do it.
