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.

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.
