swamper tread life
I have an 82 cj-7 with dana 44 axles,5:38 gears,detroits F&R, 258 and a 999 tranny. I'm purchasing a set of 38" super swamper sx's on aluminum wheels W/beedlocks.I was curious as to the tread life on these. I mostly trailer to places but ocasionaly drive 40 miles or so, to close to home places.If i keep them aired up, whats i'm i looking at in the tread life department. Any helps would be helpful

Maybe a little longer since you're running a light jeep, but not a whole lot.

Re: swamper tread life
I get somewhere around 32K on TSL's. That works out to 4 summers at 8K per summer. The last summer though, they are real bad and probably should be replaced, so I guess that I get 24K of usable life out of them. If I remember right, most people on this board get 20K out of there's.
