ZJ - 2 Questions...

I was wondering what tires I should choose between for my 3" lift. I was thinking of BFGood Mud Terrains (cant afford the Goodyears) or the All terrains. I offroad maybe 3-4 times a month with mud/dirt trails, but I want to be able to go through a mud hole every once and a while and not get stuck. Anyone know what the average total miles on the tires are?

Other question is, can I fit 32's on a 3" lift? I know you can pound the seam in on the inner front fender wells and trim the front bumper, but I have no bottom bumper. Would I be able to flex all the way without hitting my fender?

Search bud, I know weve covered these issues alot recently and a while back too.

On just a 3" lift without chopping the heck out of the fenders 32s wont stuff that well. I ran them on 3.5" of lift and ripped my front bumper off all the time and rubbed when doing any real flex. It worked fine on the road and normal driving after I hammered the pinch seam and trimmed the front bumper.

Get the MTs. Im running KM2s now, but I used to run ATs a while back. Its a night and day difference.

Ok ill do a search. My friend said he can make it fit 32's fit on my Jeep. He said it will be a lot easier since I have no bottom bumper. Did it rub when turning as a DD

I think it would be easier to just get 31's. And its cheaper . What would your choice of tires be?

BFG KM2s. Kinda biased since Im running them. Everyone has there own opinions. I see alot of TSLs but there horrible on road. If your DDing alot and not running many trails id just find a mild mud terrain. The KM2s have great road manners.
