How do the STT's perform when aired down to 12 PSI on rock & sand? Do the side walls flex and the tread grip as well as BFG MT or GY MTR?

I don't do any off roading. Never have the time. For my daily driving comute 25 miles one way to work, I enjoy what I have. 1" body lift, 2" coil spacers. Gives it a decent look! The pic I posted shows a 2" or 3' body lift. I hated it! Looks stupid!

You should talk with Oman Jeep. He runs nothing but sand dunes and he is liking the STTs in the dunes. Says they have a lot of bite.

Mine flex well aired down. Most tires will. Mine have plenty of bite, sometimes I don't even need to air down, which is nice. Depends on your terrain though. I can't compare with the BFG or goodyear since I haven't run them.

yours look great as it is. I do some offroad from time to time but I am afraid of rubbing with just 2BS+1,25BL if I fit those 33x12,5 STT´s on my 15x8rims.

if you mean a 2" suspension lift and 1.25" body lift, you'll do just fine with the 33s. You won't rub with the proper bumpstops. I don't.

Tks. I hope you are right. If you had to choose what would you do first quicker discos or trackbars?

Depends what you will be doing first. If you are planning to hit the trails immediately and hit them hard, you'll want the discos.

That being said, you will always use your trackbars. If you mainly be seeing a couple of trails within the first month (or however long it would take to afford the quick discos), then you may want the trackbars up front.

It's hard to pick one over the other. The discos are mainly an offroad luxury, although they do correct the swaybar angle which can improve on road handling and cornering as well.

So both pieces will help on road, and I wouldn't skip either. It's up to you. If your main concern is to get the lift installed and get the jeep up and running properly, go with the trackbars. They're easier to install with the suspension apart, whereas the discos will be easy either way.

tks bman and sorry for my late reply. I understand it is a difficult choice. I will go for the quicker discos first but surely I will try to get the front trackbar as soon as I a can.

Well, I have JKS which is an excellent company and brand. You'll find few to zero people complain about them (not sure I actually know of any complaints ). They're very beefy and quiet. They work well and have quite a bit of adjustment in them.

Otherwise, if not JKS, RE does well without complaint.

Hi Bman, I just have my Cooper´s 33x12,5R15 too. They look huge compared with the 31´BFG AT´s. I mounted them on black cragar´s soft 8. They claim 4" of backspacing. I could seriously rub on the sway bar at maximum turn when compressing off-road. I have 1,25´wheel spacers to avoid that but they would make my Jeep look so wide and would have to use like 8,5" fender flares to try to cover those huge tyres. Are you rubbing the swaybar too? disconnected or connected? I would like to learn form your experience. Thank you.
