    A Full review is needed
    I was reading the km3 thread last night on the cj2a forum. If I see oldtime at the reunion I will see how he likes them on his. Seems a lot of jeeps are getting them.

    These are my 1st KM3's. That deep aggressive tread should carry the B a long way.
    The old tires were 6.50x16 Xtra Traction from STA. Honestly did ok in the dirt, but on wet pavement it was a hairy experience. They are bias ply.

    The tires look good, the 3B looks great and I am envious of your two post lift.

    I had forgotten how "old school" bias ply tires really were.

    Thanks Guys for the compliments, and now that I have had the lift for a few years, I'm not sure how I got along without it.
    Here is the date on it.

    I'm pretty bad to date things in my shop for the day of install. Lift, welder, air compressor, etc. Anybody else do that??

    YE HA the little green B is the smoothest it has ever been. Ran it up to 60mph (fast enough for me) and it was very smooth. I'm happy.:bananatool:
