Re: 73-87 4x4s

Your local tire store can order them My chrome ones ran me $56 each and I think the white or black ones are about $40 each.

Re: 73-87 4x4s

1990 Chevrolet Suburban 46" Claws with only 8" of lift

Dyna-Trac Dana 60 rear w/Detroit. Teraflex high pinion CRD design Dana 60 front w/ARB and Longfield CV style 300M "Super Axles" with 4:88 gears. Both axles are custom 6 lug built specifically for this truck. Cross over steering with AGR hydraulic ram and Howe pump w/remote reservoir. TBI 454 c.i. w/ceramic coated Thorely headers, electric fans, dual Yellow Top Optimas, Painless wiring w/relays. Custom 700R4 w/stock NP241 transfer case. Front Warn 15000 winch and rear Warn 9500, both cab operated (if needed). Viar compressor with remote tank. Wilwood 6 piston 14" disc brakes on all corners. 46" Mickey Thompson Baja Claws on Stazworks 20x16 (16 being the width) double beadlock wheels. Sway-A-Way Race Runner reservoir shocks and hydraulic bump stops. 45 gallon fuel tank. Line-X on entire inside of truck as well as lower sections of body. Lower exo-skeleton front to rear provides strength as well as forms flares needed to cover tires. Skid plates, additional cross members and custom traction bar with driveline hoops. Powder coated Conferr roof rack with rear and side facing lights. Off road lights as well as LED rock lights underneath. Lowrance Globalmap 540C Baja GPS, 40 channel CB w/250 watt booster etc.

Most of my trips are in the Cascade mountain range in southern Washington State. I do almost all of my wheeling trips in the winter so snow is all this truck really sees. In fact it has developed over the years into quite a capable mountain rig. The snow here in the Cascades has a tendency to get very deep as the season progresses. It is not unusual to "float" on top of 5 to 6 feet of snow on forest roads at or above 4000 feet. The roads tend to be wide and are bordered by 100 foot tall fir trees. On a clear day from the top of the mountains you can see for miles, viewing other distant peaks as you plan ahead for next weeks outing into the unknown. However, those are definitely not my favorite days; I love a good old fashion blizzard. Wind howling down the peaks with impressive force and then gusting even stronger. Snow falling at a rate of 6" an hour that covers your tracks so fast that the rigs behind me have to ca ll up on the CB to see which way I went at the crossroads because my tracks have already filled with new snow. It's really the challenge that drives me; not knowing if I'll be sleeping in my soft bed at home or in the not so soft sleeping bag in the back of the Suburban. This rig is equipped to handle the roughest terrain the Cascades can dish out, and gets used hard each snow season.

Re: 73-87 4x4s

This is a military hummer. I know what you are saying you can also get a 37" hummer tire

36" (what I have on my truck)


these are the 37's you are speaking of. A little less agressive, but a bigger tire.



I happened to be in the military, and rode in hummers with both different sets of tires. Maybe next time I am on base I will stop and take pictures of dozens of them with both different applications on them.

HOWEVER, you may be right about the CUCV's. they may have just been put on in different units (may not have came with them).

Lots of units have swapped the hummer tires onto CUCV's. One good way to get around the 4.56 gears.
