So this is my first post to my first forum so I hope I am doing this right!! Just a little background. The first Jeep we bought was my wife's 17 JK, new off the dealer floor. We did a leveling kit, nerf bars, LED headlights and I found a set of BFG M/T's on Jeep Willys stock wheels. That was about all the mods she wanted, as she calls it, it's her "Pavement Princess". I wanted to get in the mud and the woods a little more so when her dad offered me his 2001 TJ, I jumped on it. I haven't got too crazy with the mods and after reading a few other posts, there are several things that I had thought about doing that I probably won't. So far I have installed front and rear bumpers, LED headlights, rock sliders & a 9500# Barricade winch. The only other thing I would really like to change is the tires from A/T to M/T's, but these still have plenty of tread so that will be a little while!! Thanks for your time and for letting me join the group!!

Welcome to the forum, and Jeep life! I can't see the sidewall of your tires, but they look like BFG first gen KO's. Those tires wear like iron! They'll crack and rot before you'll wear the tread out. You might also want to check the date code on the sidewalls. If they are over 7 years old you might want to consider those mud terrains you want.

I will have to look at the codes, where on the sidewall are they & how do I read them??

Or, get close and read the letters on the sidewall. If there are cracks running through the letters, time for new tires…

😉

Welcome to the forum. Nice rig with which to start. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.
