Jeep newb

What's up everyone. I am new to the Jeep world, came from owning a Xterra. I have had my Zj for about a month now. So far I just have fixed some little things on it so far. This forum has been a big help so far.

Sunday I fixed the trans pan leak and on the way home Monday I had a tire blow out! Jeep is already taking my money lol. I am not sure is I'm gonna stick with 31's on it or bump up to 32's.

Here is a picture of it

Those D35 rear axles are a notoriously weak axle. Careful how big of a tire you run. You may end up with more expensive fixins in your future.

I've been reading about that. At my shop we have a 8.8 out of a explorer. I am gonna see if my manager will let me have it or for cheap at least. I probably would go with the artec truss kit to convert it
