Hi Jon and welcome. That is one modified Terracan. Many people under rate them but I have seen one handling difficult tracks well.

thanx for the welcome Bmurray2250

yup sure does have quite a few mods
but I ain't finished modding it yet
I'm sure that the more I mod it the more things I think of to do

Yup you're right very under rated 4wd I ain't had any probs keeping up with my M8 Pete in his 6" lifted GU justa matter of picking the right driving lines
Terracans Have a good LSD in the rear but once I get my diff locks ther will be no stopping it(well almost LOL)

Hi John, with the mudstars your getting, you need to go to a 33" as they are actually only a 32", but an absolutely awesome tyre, for the money you pay they kill everything else on the market.

Hi John, with the mudstars your getting, you need to go to a 33" as they are actually only a 32", but an absolutely awesome tyre, for the money you pay they kill everything else on the market.

265/75R16 Mudstars are approx 31.87" in dia
285/75R16 Mudstars are approx 32.45" in dia
so not much difference.

I'm sticking with the 265/75R16 's as I know they fit without scrubbing(still 2"s bigger than the stock rubber that comes on the Terracans :D )
& I've set my rig up for touring as well as easy-medium with the occasional hard option
if I were to for for the 285/75R16 then I'll need to do a bit of guard surgery/massaging(read as taking a rubber mallet t the inner guard.

even though the 265/75R16"s are 2" bigger than the stock rubber the 3.5L V6 doesn't even notice the difference in fact it performs better which is a bit strange :confused:
I'm sure that the engine wouldn't even notice 33"s :D
