285/65/18s may be a little too big to fit w/o rubbing, unless you give your suspensions a lift. If you mean 265/65/18 (BFG T/A KO is available in that size), those should fit with minimal rubbing except under full compression or steering lock. I have no experience with BF Goodrich tires - I hear they are very good although not as good as they used to be... - but am very happy with Cooper Zeon LTZs (sized 285/60/18) on my RRS, they are plenty good on just about any off road terrain - except mud and ice - and very comfortable, competent and quiet on road. They are my everyday tires and I am on my second set, the first one lasted me about 50,000 miles. There was still plenty of tread left but they didn't have the bite of new ones off-road anymore. Not sure if Coopers are available in Norway, though. Also consider the Nitto Terra Grappler (285/60/18), which you can have in regular or E-load rating. These are all all-terrains, nothing too radical and aggressive, but that makes them suitable for use on the road as well. Keep us posted on your pick!
BF all terrain is in both 265/65/18 and 285/65/18. Wonder how much adjustment has to be done to get the 285/65/18 fitted. Is adjusting the air suspension software enough or do I need mechanical adjustments?
Haven't found any dealer in Norway selling the Cooper tires you specified.
haven't found any dealer in norway selling cooper zeon LTZ, but anyone know what dimensions they have in 18". Do they have 275/65/18, 285/65/18 and for you using the cooper tires what size are you running and any pictures would be great `8)
I use general grabber AT2s which have been a great success. Looked at the BFs but my dealer thought the Grabbers a better choice if you do much on-road also. My mix in the RR is about 95 percent on road so that's what I went for.
VFC rear bumper. :clap: VFC RR!
Please... more info (and more pics!). Who built it, etc. Do you have any underbody protection? Are the wheels from a RRS? Detais on the second battery/isolator split charge, details on the suspension lift (+15mm at all settings or just OR?), details...
How bout a write up on your car (+some action pics!):
The rear bumper was built by my fabricator here in southern California - http://www.castlefab.net/ - he's a great guy and does amazing work!
I'll try and get more pics asap.
The suspension lift is +1.5 inches on all settings. Admitedly, this causes the airbags to be at the top of their range in "extended mode", but I don't really use extended mode much.
I don't have any skidplates, but that is next on the list to have my fabricator build. I can't bring myself to purchase the Mantec Sump Guard for almost $1400. My fabricator can build me one probably for half that price.
The dual battery setup is a simple one - just a constant duty solenoid that is tripped when the vehicle is turned on. I could install a "smart" system, but I have been off roading for 20 years with systems just like this one and never had a problem. I have the rear 12v socket setup to ONLY pull off this second battery. I will probably add more circuits, but it's really a "refrigerator battery" as that is the only thing I plug into that socket.
