Here, I'll link it from another site...



And Uther... that color is Rustoleum, smoke gray.

And the softness, I have nicked it a couple times having bounced various items off the side of the truck, while it was only a couple days old. I think it has cured a bit better since then. On Sunday I rubbed a tree and it didn't appear to be any more than a typical scratch. So, soft paint yes. But it's not flying off the truck, even in the damaged spot.

That's it. It is orange peely though. I should have painted it orange that way the texture would have been accurate.

Seriously though, I rolled the semi gloss on the roof with a small foam roller and the texture is better. But as I have said before, I didn't want to put too much time or money into painting this thing as it sees regular trail duty.

So far I like the tires a lot. Smooth as glass and quiet on the highway and have yet to let me down in traction on the trail.

A little. I try to avoid mud when I can. I hate mud and the clean up that goes with it. But there are some trails we run, one in particular, that can get pretty swampy. I went through the swampy part without any trouble. This was last summer.

Standard DOT make. Not the soft/sticky version which I think is limited to the Krawler T/A. I don't think they make sticky KM2s, but I could be wrong.
