Editor’s note: Alexander Gallagher is still learning what he and his Jeep can accomplish, but one thing’s for sure: with BFGoodrich® Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires, his Jeep already has the right shoes for the job.
I’ve been into cars since I was a kid and collected model cars when I was young. As soon as I got my driver’s license, I started buying and selling cars, looking for the right one to suit my needs and personality. When I got the Wrangler, my life was changed. It was the perfect vehicle, and I hope to have her until the wheels fall off.
The JL was the perfect platform for me. The capability out of the box is amazing. I remember climbing a steep hill with jagged rocks and slippery boulders days after getting her, and I thought, How could this get even better?
But I love tinkering with things, and the JL was a blank slate and an opportunity for me to really take my hobby to the next level. It’s been fun learning what works and what doesn’t. I’ve got a 2.5” Enforcer Stage 4 lift from EVO; adjustable King Shocks; adjustable track bars; and lights and accessories from SPOD and Diode Dynamics.
The modifications so far have been for the capability of the vehicle, and I’m still figuring that out, but at least I know the right tires for her: 37” BFGoodrich® Mud-Terrain T/A KM2s.
My reason for going with BFGoodrich® Tires? Well, I was in a remote part of California on a long on- and off-road journey with my dog and my girlfriend. We pulled into a grocery store to get some food, and we parked next to a lady in a beat up Toyota FJ40 and started talking about off-roading. She told us she was a tow truck driver, and she owned one of the few companies that will tow people off the more difficult trails in the area.
I immediately looked at the tires on her vehicle and saw she was running KM2s. My old tires had worn down prematurely, and I was in the market for a new set. I immediately thought, If she’s running them in the line of work she’s in, then they must be the best. When I got home from that trip, I sat down and ordered a set immediately.
