The only place I don't like having a narrow tire is in sugar sand because they just dig and you sink. You have to learn how to drive with skinny tires, just the right amount of throttle, too much and you dig and sink and too little you don't go anywhere.

I've gone through mud holes and had my jeep pop out of 4wd and still make it through where people with wider tires couldn't get through with 4wd. If it is hard packed bottom skinny tires will dig down and find the hard packed part. If it isn't hard packed you are screwed.

Just my .02 skinny tires dig like there is no tomorrow. I saw a guy make a humvee snorkel home made, it came out of the hood where the k&n is and it looked sick! Besides if you do it then I will haha

Agreed. And I don't want it to be seen. Plus it will suck up water faster easier.

Also ordered the linkage bearings today for my jeep.

Cowl intakes suck, i had one, extremely difficult to maintain, and get the fatter tires, Ive had 33x10.50s and 12.50s, overall, in mud, rocks, sand, offroad in general, the 12.50s were better, on the road, i didnt really notice a difference.

No offense dude, but theyres too many variables to your situation, mud depth, speed, driving style, driver, etc. I kind of doubt that your jeep made it through mud holes in 2wd that other rigs with wider tires couldnt make through in 4wd, guys who have dedicated mud rigs run the biggest tires they can. Anyway who cares, mud is gay/boring.

Like i said ive owned both, 12.50s outperform hands down.

Cool Story Bro. You're right I made it up so that I could seem cooler on the internet . So you just said there are to many variables and then say that 12.50 wide are better no matter what You also forget that dedicated mud trucks also run huge motors with lots of HP so you can't really compare them to the 4.0L. Vehicle weight also has a big part to do with how wide your tires should be, believe it or not there is some science behind but you already know that since you seem to know everything. All I have to say is you should actually go to a mud bog before you open your mouth, there is a reason they run tractor tires.



Oh also I guess the people in Europe who off road have it wrong too since they don't usually go with wide tires.

That being said my next tire purchased will be a little wider but that is just for looks IMO.

i beg to differ. my cowl intake has served me very well. it is a bit anoying to sercive the filter, but its worth it with all the gains from the mod

the dust isnt a big concern since its in the cowl IMO. when i did mine i cut up some stockings and put it over the intake. helps keep a bit more dust/dirt off. everytime i clean it i put a new one on also. works just like their pre-filters

i say go for it
