New meats (Nitto Ridge Grappler 255 70 18 XL) on 18" TuffAnt Alloys. SHOUT-OUT to Jake Van Sickler at TuffAnt U.S.A/Expedition Yankee LLC for the whees and extensive consultation.

Any of you P300 owners with big wheels (20" 22") from the factory should know there are small "crash" blocks that must be removed to install 18" wheels; pretty sure this is North American Defenders only. It looks like a billet aluminum block at the lower-front of the rotor assembly, held-on by one small torx bolt. Allegedly it is installed on the larger wheels to prevent them from intrusion into the firewall.

Just did about 3,500 miles including Imogene Pass from Telluride to Ouray, Colorado. Amazing experience and we could not believe how well the Defender did even without a rear locker!

We went up what looked like a vertical rock face (Imogene Trail) around 9' tall in low-range Rock Crawl. I was convinced we would have to back down or at least scrape the front fascia.

The traction control just kept climbing; really felt unbelievable! I think my old JKU Rubicon Recon with 33" wheels and front/rear lockers would have struggled.

The Ridge Grapplers performed awesome on and off road, though we did get a huge puncture on the highway.
