    285/75R16 GY Duratracs with a 3" SL. I also have a 2" BL though it's not necessary for running 33's. Search around the site a bit, there are lots of threads to help you out. Good Luck.

    SI noticed in a pic you have ProComp 7089's. What size tire are you running and what lift/mods did you have to do to get it to fit in the front?

    I did have them on stock wheels for a while. I was running 40 PSI (just a personal preference and good chalk testing). Sounds like they weren't balanced right or threw a wheel weight.

    Hey surf and snow I was just wandering if you ever ran 285-75r16 Duratracs on stock wheels, and if so what psi did you have them set to for normal driving? I just put a set on my stock wheels and am having vibrations at 65-70, mine are set at 35 all the way around. I am not sure if it is a balance issue, bad tire or if tire pressure is too high. Thanks.

    Mine is a beefy utility trailer. I made it mostly for homeowner duty like hauling large items or dirt/gravel. Plus going up into the forest for firewood or extended camping trips. I spent about $900 on it plus sweat equity. That Manley ORV in is base utility trailer form costs $6000 plus the cost to get it to you (the shipping alone probably cost almost as much as my whole trailer) That's one of the reasons I built it myself. If you can weld and don't mind putting in some hours in the garage its way cheaper.

    I noticed you build your own offroad trailer. I find this very interested and have a similar dream. Any reason why you didn't buy a pre-built one such as Manley ORV or Schutt's VX-1? feel free to PM me if its easier, Thanks Ben

    No problems. The PRG UCAs have been great. Been 6 years and about 60,000 mi so far.

    Hey man,
    I'm from PDX but live in SoCal now. Planning on moving back to the NW in a year or so. Wondering how your PRG UCAs have been holding up to the elements in that neck of the woods. I'm thinking of PRG, SPC, or TC UCAs. Have you found any issues with the exposed ball joint and the bearings given the amount of moisture up there?
    Thanks for the input.
