Always gotta be rollin the 35's and looking awesome

But seriously, i've got no room in the garage to have 2 sets of tires. I've got to pick a size and stay with it. I was thinking 33's for now, but it all depends on when my dad moves to 37s

Any feedback on how it drives with the RC 2.5? Any driveline vibes/alignment issues? I'm considering this exact setup with 32's for my TJ. How well does the 4 banger turn the 32's?

It rides really good, definitely on the highway. Its got a hard time keeping at 70, but around town aint bad.

Yeah, keeping it up to highway speed was my only real concern. Do you just run yours in 4th or can you make it up to 5th? I'm at 31's right now and generally keep mine it 4th up to about 60MPH, I have a hard time pulling in 5th below that.

I run 5th a lot. It's just hills that kill it. I'm going to add the 4.0 tb and see if that helps at all

Hills are my biggest issue as well, it'll hold in 5th on the flats no problem. I've been thinking about the 4.0 tb too, I'll probably switch over when I get the TJ out again in the spring.

Put my Subaru up for sale. I'm not liking being so low to the ground when driving. Going with an XJ for a DD. so trade or sell for an XJ

HAHA I thought you wanted one car with decent gas mileage? Now you might as well just drive the jeep as a DD
