Got my tires mounted tonight!! Previous was 32x11.5 Goodyear MTRs and now are 33x12.5 Interco Trxus (A true 33). I instantly regret not getting 35's though, but nothing will really hold me back on the trails. Also, I'm waiting for rock rings to get cut for me and then weld them to my new rims with 4" backspace. these currently have 4.75" backspace.

For as much as I've read this thread I'm surprised I never commented on it.

You should do an engine cage.

When the Jeep becomes a drive to trail only, it will get a full ego cage. As of now, it is a daily driver

Finally got the Jeep back on the rocks this weekend! After all the work I've done to it. Performed great, but I need to push my front axle forward about 1.5"
