Can you light up your tires from a standstill?

I feel like I should be posting this in my Mustang forum and not here, but I thought it would be fun to hear other people's experiences. I have a stock 2012 JK with 3.73's and auto. The only mod is larger tires, 285/70/17. My wife and I recently moved from Colorado to New Jersey and I am enjoying the additional power our vehicles make at sea level. Yesterday, I was out on Long Island and while sitting at a red light, decided to punch it when the light turned green. I was way out near the eastern tip, and the road was empty. To my surprise, our little JK lit up the rear tires and absolutely roasted the 285/70/17 BFG Muds. Wow. No axle hop or sideways or anything, just a nice, smooth clean burnout. I know a lot of people love and / or hate on the Pentastar but wow, what a stout little motor. Not that burnouts are what our Jeeps are made for, but can you break traction in your JK?

I have the stock style KM 1's (32") with 3.21 6-speed. They seem to light up when I lose my patience! Any clutch will smoke tires if you're heavy on the throttle and quick off the clutch!

I've never tried. I paid too much for my tires to just burn them up, and I don't plan on replacing a clutch any time soon.

I wasn't trying either, I just thought they'd hook up and go. Instead I left a smoky patch or rubber. I was very surprised.

3.8 JKU 3:73 32" tires. Not if my life depended on it.

Maybe if the road was covered in baby oil.

(3.6, 3:73's, on 32's at the time) the one time I did it, was when my friend pulled up next to me and wanted to race. I burned out into half way through 2nd gear and smoked him lol very nice controllable burnout. BUT I DIGRESS.... Now I'm on 35's and I don't think that burnout thing will ever happen again.

2012 6 speed 4.10s 35x12.50s.

No. My km2s are siped as well, definitely no.
If it is wet, sure it will spin ONE rear tire.

Our 012 with 4:10 and 35"s on steel, still can burn rubber half pedal, auto. When we bought it had the 32"s and 4:10 stock it could fry the tires. we did order the 4:10s though as the rubi auto then/now? were an option and stock was 3:73. the auto first gears is fairly low. you could about compare it with say an 011 with 4:10 and the 012 same gearing is more like in effect 5:13. Of all the new things 012 brought to Jeep. I think the auto was the biggest upgrade.

As of right now, with my 285/35/20's I can spin all four.

After next week, I don't know for sure, but I'm going to say no.

I feel like every time I press the pedal down it just laughs at me.
