Exactly, I got a screaming deal on 35" MTR's w/ a Kevlar MTR spare. These tires just plain work. I really like them

Your truck makes it just look bad ***. Mine just looks like another trail rig w/ a bad *** bumper.

Updates coming very soon. I have to install a new 4.56 Ring and pinon up front.

New shoes look good bro. You will love those tires. Got a hell of a deal on a S35 kit so I am going that route until it breaks.

No doubt, jeep looks pretty boss. Do you have a license plate light for your rear bumper? Im going through that now but dont know what to do for lighting.

Sweet carnage, that picture is pretty much the only thing keeping me from 35's. If I had a 4.0 or the 30 was open I wouldn't think twice, but a locked 30 + a V8 + 35's seems like a recipe for disaster.

Sweet pic! I am running 33's with 4.56 gears as well. I have been on the fence about making the Jump to 35s'. I have 5.5" lift, Plus the bushwacker fender flair , that coupled with motor and gears I very well could go 35's . But I wheel pretty hard and I was worried about more trail carnage then my occasional front U-joint. So your busted ring gear is an image I will hold in my mind when it comes time for my decision. Your Jeep does look B.A. I see you appear to be wheeling with some others who may take this whole off road driving to the next level as well. Nice Job!

35'' tires are nice. I like them, they fit the look of the truck quite a bit better. These MTR's are just the bees knees. The carnage is pretty wicked, on my cooper 33'' tires I was breaking u joints in in 297 shafts like they were going out of style. So i changed up to the Chromo superior shafts. Naturally the next thing down the chain is the R&P. I believe that the R&P had alot of wear/tear before i bought it and i got a year's worth of use out of it.

Frankly, I'm going to change up the gears. Than i will continue to trail drive this thing.
The guys i wheel with, have some big rigs. I keep up pretty easily but the unibody is the annoying thing lately.

Just read the whole thread. It's nice to see someone wheeling a grand hard and fabbing some nice parts for it. When you build the LA's are you going the Claytons RA style, 3 link, or is there something else up your sleeve? Also, do you have any issues with the ARB compressor getting hot under the seat? I was going to mount mine there but I've heard they need a good amount of area around them to keep cool. Keep up the good work, I'll be following along. Also, thanks for your service and stay safe.

Thanks man, I really appreciate it. This rig just amazes me more and more as i wheel it throughout the years.

For my Long arm suspension, I am going to run a traditional Radius Arm(RA) up front. Just because it is simple. I think i can get it to have none of the "jacking" characteristics that people say they can have by putting a center limiting strap in it. The xmember will remind you of a claytons and i will use 2'' 1/4'' wall square tubing.

For the rear I am going to run a 5 link so keep the rear track bar and run traditional 4 long links. non triangulated.

The compressor does get hot as i fill tires but i always pop my rear seat up and let it vent and keep it within the duty cycle and it works really well. I haven't worried about it yet.
