The tires aren't going to be that big of a change.

They are quieter at hwy speed. My speedo is off, so I may attempt to fix that someday. But then again I was used to it with the YJ. You can notice the power difference even with only moving up one tire size, I'm glad I didn't choose 33's.

I found me some fresh snow to play in.....

Can't wait until the lift goes on Wednesday.

Thanks. Yes I remember, lost the bow in the first or second mud hole.. The gift wrap spare survived the entire trip though. I missed this years T4T's, despite my efforts.

Tire to flare:

Rear: 4 3/4"

The tires I'm taking off measured at 29" in the rear and 29 1/2" in the front. I'll post new mesaurements after the Kev's go on, and again when the OME goes on.
Measurements with new 265/75R16 tires:

Front bumper: 20 1/2"
Rear bumber: 18 1/2"
Frame: 15 1/2"
TC skid: 11 3/4"
Front diff: 9 3/4"
Rear diff: 9 3/4"
Tire to flare:
Front: 3"
Rear: 3 3/4"

The spare is just below the 3rd brake light and is just resting on the bumper. There is no rubbing of the control arms at full lock.

You get 31s or 32s? Regardless, they look great.

Maybe we'll find our way down to Kentucky for some wheeling someday.

Those are the equivalent to 32's, the stockers were 31's.

i have 6" with 31's, haha. I definately need to go bigger, but my jeep is my dd and anything bigger is much less practical.

@jeffro, dirty turtle offroad just opened this year. havent been there yet either tho, but everyone seems to like it.
