    Yeah, people seem to love them or hate them. For a different perspective, I’m very happy with mine. They aren’t noisy, although that might be because I only have about 14k miles on them. But they are absolutely flawless off-road. I have nothing but very positive experiences with them on gravel, dirt, large rocks, mud (including mud pits), and in sand and snow. The are three-peak snow rated in my size (285/75R18).

    The downside is that they feel like LT tires on pavement, and my truck is slightly slower off the line. That trade-off is fine by me.

    Oh, last thing: it seems that the people who like Duratracs also rotate their tires every 3k miles. I certainly do. Maybe they wear faster if you go longer between rotations?

    Anyone know if you can pull off the black step pads on the brushed stainless steel steps? (30917-02)

    There are screws underneath but I was able to hand turned them and they just spin. So I don’t know if just a tab/plug or do the screws hold/lock the pads down.

    Just wondering because I’m going to dip them with the dark dip I have. They came out nice but on the lighter side and sorta have a bluish tint. I think it would be nicer to get the dip partially under the pads. An inch or two would be fine.

    What a Beautiful day! Sunshine and above average temps. So I was able to get this project underway and all wrapped in about an hour and a half. Really really took my time and it all went smoothly.

    Very happy with the outcome! A couple pictures of the “job complete”.

    Oh and the most important part of the job…..labeling and bagging

    A Before & After picture

    A quick tip for anyone ever thinking of removing the front valance/fascia. The 3 screws that are attached to the bumper caps are a nightmare to reach especially the bottom. You can get the top two using a small ratchet but need a small wrench to get to that bottom.

    Got big hands? It’s really gonna be tough in that small space. So I reattached mine thru the fog light opening. Much much easier to reach all 3 screws.

    Anyway that’s my 2 cents.

    Not sure what the resale value is on the chrome surround & bulge plus the older style pro grille. I’ll look over the “for sale” stuff and see what others have sold for.

    Tomorrow I hope to get the gaskets on my Fender Flares and hopefully have those installed before the weekend.

    Life of course happens so I’ll first go to do bloodwork and might as well do whatever errands need to be done then finally get back home and start the flares.

    Like to get door handles dipped as well as the cup holder chrome trim, shift gate and the other piece of trim in that center shift area. This week it will be done…… as long as the weather forecasters are correct with No Rain for a few days anyway.

    Oh and new tires Wednesday!

    Installed the Gaskets on my freshly color matched Bushwacker OE Style Fender Flares (30917-02)
    Half the gasket roll was pretty kinked up. Not sure how that happened and why only half was sorta messed up.

    I started with the 2 rear flares and I’m not pleased with the outcome. A couple kinks around some of the curved areas just can’t adhere properly. Slight kink keeps pulling the gasket away.

    Emailed Bushwacker to see if they can send me a replacement gasket. When I receive it I’ll pull the messed up one off both the rear flares and redo both.

    Both of the front flares came out perfect. No issues whatsoever. Gasket was in very good condition.


    New Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs this afternoon! Went with stock size: 275/65/18s. No Leveling kit or lift plans

    Decided to Dip a few things today!

    The Chrome Door Handles, Chrome Shift Gate, Chrome Cupholder and the other grayish/silverish trim piece

    I know a lot of people remove the plastic piece around the shifter which is semipermanently attached. They drill out the plastic welds and then release the tabs.

    I think you have to do that to install the ajt trim piece but since I’m only dipping it I really didn’t want to go thru all that and just wrapped what I didn’t want to spray.

    Came out pretty nice. I like that Dark Gray dip. I did give everything several coats of Matte Clear Enamel to help protect and harden the dip.

    A few pictures for you all to checkout and I’m happy to answer any questions and appreciate your comments/opinions

    A few Before and Afters

    Decided to “Redo” the Brushed Stainless Steel Steps. Really wasn’t feeling the Gunmetal Gray. Looked too lite and sorta Blueish. I just prefer that Dark Gray……it seems to go well with the Cement exterior.

    So I just sprayed over the gunmetal gray with Anthracite Gray which is much darker. Then several coats of Matte Clear Enamel.

    Won’t reinstall until tomorrow. Want to give the dip a day to cure. I’ll take a Before & After picture tomorrow

    It’s a Gray Day!

    Reinstalled the Brushed Stainless Steel Steps after changing them to a Darker Gray

    Came out pretty good. Looks way better than the Blueish Gunmetal Gray.

    Probably install this weekend. Looks to be like a 10 minute job.

    Those parts are for GRAY plastic interior trim.
