Good pics. I love off road carnage. Need a few more dents tho...
Looks like an Ok tire for road and mild offroading. I would still be careful offroad. Look at the terrain/ obstacle and learn to pick the best line avoiding sharp rocks.
When I think off road tires Its more like mine which I consider a minimum for my needs for a off road tire. Pro Comp 12.50 x33 x 15, 3 ply sidewalls. I would go bigger 12.50 35s but. I need to do some more work with my sawzall and hammer to make them fit. I don't want to lift my truck higher than it is.
I would consider dumping the running boards if you want to off road. The little rock kiss in the bottom of my driver door ( have a matching one on the right side too.) would have taken out a running board and got me hung up.

The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it

If Americans ever allow banks to control their currency. First by deflation then inflation. The banks will deprive the people of all property. Until their children wake up homeless.
