Thanks Steve and Lance for your input. I really had not thought about the tire size being the same and beadlocks definitely are my first choice in that back country. While I imagine that the aftermarket will address the spare tire issue, the beadlocks would seem to be the right choice. Those pretty yellow wheels will still get beat up though
. Good information Steve, I've already gone from camo to red back to yellow XT, and my dealer is getting tired of me I'm sure, so when I change my order to the X he'll be pleased again.
I agree with you Lance about the winch too. It will most likely be on as as needed basis, not that there are always good anchor sponts in the desert. I've known guys who get the biggest, baddest winches and have never even used them... but I guess you only really need it once to get your $$ worth. Man between suspension, undercarriage, lights, doors, tires and wheels this is really a blast to think about. Thanks again for your help and insight.
