    Got our new Dynatrac lift installed and all 5 tires mounted and installed! Looks better than I thought it could and drives great right out of the box!

    Anti-seize

    Do you guys use anti-seize on the beadlock bolts?

    I have always used it on my wheels, but on my KMC wheels it seems to be a problem. The anti-seize kinda gummed up the end of the bolts, and when I removed them, unscrewed the helicoils (or whatever it is called) in the wheel. It also attracted a lot of dirt which is going to have to be cleaned off threads in the wheels and on the bolts.

    I did not use anti seize. Remember that dry bolts and lubricated bolts have different torque values.

    I do on my slabs but not my machetes. If you wash the wheels after install before wheeling it will clean the anti seize off the ends of the bolts.

    I ended up not using anti-seize, made it easier to get the bolts all torqued the same.

    I don't drive it much in the winter anyhow- shouldn't be an issue.
