Performance in the MUD!

Alright, Ive pretty much desided to go with the Trxus MT's. From what Ive read there realy nice in the mud and all around a good tire. I cant decide if i wanna go 31s or 33s though. Im looking for a setup thats great in the mud and on trails through the "woods". I know obviously 33s will be better than 31s because there bigger, but will they do THAT much better? Anyways, these are the setups I was considering to get the most out of my limited supply of money...

31" Trxus MT's - 575
REBB - 250
Skid Row Oil pan/tranny skid - 245
Skid Row steering box skid - 50
Superwinch EPi 9.0 - 540
Superwinch Supermount - 150
TOTAL - $1810

OR

DPG OME basic lift - 650 or Deluxe - 835
Skid Row steering box skid - 50
Superwinch EPi 9.0 - 540
Superwinch Supermount - 150
TOTAL - $1965 w/ Deluxe $2150

33" Trxus MT's - 540 (only 4 tires, id keep my 30" spare)
DPG Deluxe Lift - 835
new wheels - 480ish
Skid Row steering box skid - 50
TOTAL - $1905

OR

DPG Ultimate Lift - 1195
new wheels - 480ish
TOTAL - $2215

Im just looking for a starting setup. Ill keep upgrading but it took me forever to get this money (about a $2000 budget) and I just want to get the most out of my money and have a nice Jeep to have fun with this summer! I was thinking about maybe adding a Original 40 Series Flowmaster, cuz i LOVE the sound of them.

thanks for the help!

The D44 should handle 33s nicely but it is questionable as to how the 3.73s will work. Really what it'll come down to is how you drive and what your willing to live with. In saying the bigger the better, you have to be careful. You have to consider what good is a taller tire if you cant turn them when their covered in mud? Im bouncing back and forth from 31s, 32s, and 33s myself...

so many choices and so little money..

Here's a thought at something you might want to look into as well. I'm working on somewhat of a simular budget and set-up. Take a look at my sig.

I'm planning on getting the following:
RE2"BB/1"MML/1"BL/Medic Belly-Up Skid/Medic Engine Skid and 33" tires

with this set-up you can run alot of different trails and still be in your budget as well. And one nice thing too is I'm getting rid of the "shovel" existing t-case skid and adding some strength in there with the Medic combo as well.

You can't disco on trails or the 33s will rub.

well will have to play trial and error, since I've seen several Jeeps running this set-up and think that I'll have to change the bumpstomps as well and will just have to watch at full flex or flexed when turned also. I know that they will get stuffed in the fenders.
