Armor!....... If you smash your rear bumper or tub you can still get home, if you smash a diff, oil pan or gas tanks your screwed. It isn't as glamourous as a lift or rear bumper but it will get you back home.

Suhwheet! Go with armor next (where are the bigger tires!?) which is actually useful 99% of the time where heavier bumpers are useful maybe 1% of the time.

When you have a choice, buy American.

Yeah, armor will be next. I need to get something with rock rails so the midget wife (5'2") can get in the darn thing. Tires will be in there somewhere but I've only got 2700 miles on these. The plan is 33's. Just gotta figure which ones. To be honest I'm doing the axles/gears/lockers some time around March next year so the diff protection will wait until then. No rocks crawling until then.

33s are gonna look mighty small with a 4.5" RE LA suspension lift. That size lift is meant more for 35" tires.

OK since the tires are almost new, you can sell them and get most of your czash back out of them. Becouse that poor poor lonley Jeep needs tires worse than your wife needs side steps. I know, I had a customer that had a big van that was too tall for her so she made a small step out of wood with a string on it. So when she got in she pulled the step in the van, probably $5. Now that $ canalso go twards tires, see where i'm going here.

Lets start working smarter not harder

it needed emissions and the dyno thing doesnt allow tires bigger then 33's and we had just sold the 30's. So I borrowed the tires from a buddy (205/75/15's or something like that) and thought it would be funny to put all 4 on instead of just the backs
