Buddy convinced me to use his Groover and groove my 36" TSL Radials to get some more life out of rears( sorry B[cheers]), so I did !:dontknow:

ALso installed Dodge Durango steering box .Turns those tires way easier. Feels great!![36]

U can see the difference in boxes.

Vid of the "Groovy" day lol

Grip difference will blow you away when they are more capable of wrapping around stuff now. Way more flex. Enjoy.

pretty damn simple actually..jut PB blast or similiar all bolts night before and day off and should be straight forward.

Almost had a heart attack once out , trying to get in Durango box, just the right position and it fits!
So much beefier and waaaaaay easier to move those tires!

As well all my fluid drained out , so had a squeaky pump til we filled and ran through to box a couple times.:party0010:

thinking of grooving the wear bars on the two almost bald tires on back .. Horizontal cuts between the lugs directly on the bars. Should give me some extra gripping
