Nothing wrong with keeping your Jeep original. In some ways I wish I could have kept the MB stock. It would be worth about 4x more now than any other Jeep I have now. Radial tires just ride nicer. My father referred to NDTs as grave diggers after his time in the Army. They do fine in some situations and they totally suck in some conditions. He wouldn't let me put them on my MB. OK, I'll just run those Michelins.
