Edit: Forgot to add, It's completely stock still. (The Tires/wheels at least)

Also;

Just because it looks like its 4-wheel drive doesn't mean you can use it that way......

It's an interesting thought, even if not a very practical one. What do you plan on doing with your car?

Anything is possible. Just find a smaller tire with an aggressive tread. I have 205 60 16's on mine and I could probably go a little bigger. I don't ha e aggressive tread pattern though.

That's actually really cool. Not unlike a lifted Samurai.

My 'summer' tires are Toyo Extensa A/S. Poor in any condition.

Yeah, they're trash. Beats riding on rims though.
