Not for about 26 years and then I was up the road a distance in Sarasota for 13 years. Live in UP state SC now. You still have the "love bugs" down there?

I used to live in Bonita Springs (Fort Myers/Naples area). Moved to NC 10 years ago. But I drive down there about once a year to visit family and the beaches! If I'm down there, I'll let you know!

I am finishing off my stock tires now. the fronts are about 30% left and the rears about 70% (weren't rotated by previous owner). I haven't decided on the new ones yet, but I drive mostly on the street. I think I might stick to an all terrain tire like the stock ones only bigger. I like the KO2s but they aren't the best for street and are extremely noisy on my buddies wrangler. I might sacrifice a little off road (10% of my driving) for a better street ride (90% of my driving).


Oh, The stock tires did great in Ocala. It poured rain all day and I never had any problems. It was mothers day weekend and we only saw 1 other person all day (stuck chevy). no need to upgrade to get up there and enjoy the trails if you have a trailhawk. 3' deep sugar sand ruts. I just stayed out of the ruts and on top. never spun the tires once. even pulling out a full sized chevy truck. the stock firestones actually impressed me. Probably going back to explore some more in a couple weeks.
