I love them they are great for highway and snowy roads (wont help you in AZ lol) I've had them for 3 years and only rotated them twice I got them at Costco and when I went in to get them rotated after 8k they said they where the same tread depth front to rear but rotated them anyways. After almost 20k they show hardly any wear.

That's tight. I've had a couple set on my pick up and liked them but wasn't sure how they really wheel also

I had them on a 99 Dakota with the gutless 3.9 Magnum and I shredded them. I only had the truck for a little over a year and about 10k miles

This is the only reason I bought 35's, the original plan was 33's until I felt the new gears on this 3 speed lol

I hope its what you need it all depends on the year transmission you have mine is out of a 95 wrangler external slave. The internal slaves have a smaller one I do believe.

Well nothing to report on my jeep its kinda been on the sidelines its been running great and getting good mileage so can't complain. this is what has been taking up all my time. Sold my house and bought a new one. The only thing I'm sad about is going from my 4 car garage down to a two car with the new place, but the pros of the new house far out weigh the pros of the old house. Plus I can always build a shop down the road since I now own two acres of prime Montana country living. If all goes well we will be moved in by Aug 1st
Old house:


New house:

The funny thing about moving is you find things You forgot you had. I finally found the pics of the jeep my dad and I built together. This isnt the first jeep we owned but it was the one that made me realize I can't wait to do this with my kids. My dad and I had so much fun fixing and driving this rust bucket.
