Unmounted, the 37's measure ~36.75" tall. I'm not sure what they measured new, but there's plenty of tread left. The 35's are pretty worn & have ~6psi in them.

I placed a level on top of the Krawlers to measure the difference & the difference was ~4".

I found the tires over on Pirate. The reason the guy needed to get rid of them is because he's going to compete next year in the stock modified class @ KOH. Rules have it that no competition compounds are allowed. He bought some 37" MT/R kevlars to replace the krawlers.

Sawzall time.

What are you planning on doing with your mtr's when you mount the krawlers?

If you're selling how much are you trying to get for them?

I need to come by and check out the progress.... maybe tomorrow if you'll be around

Hello all,
Been absent from the forums for a bit but getting back into the swing of things. So I'll be throwing some stuff on the Jeep here soon and would love to NOT turn it in to a shop. Things I'd like some assistance on would be mounting some kewl armor and a little suspension. There's others but I think I can handle those. Might need some guidance on a CB as well....Never installed one of those before. If anyone has the space and eloquent cursing abilities to guide me through the installs I'd really appreciate it. Oh, experience installing wouldn't hurt either. I'll be out of town during the 4th but after that there's going to be a slew of toys coming in to play with. Take care and see you all on the trail.

Who wants to help me mount some 35s tomorrow.

By "mount" I don't mean just bolt up. I have to break down my 33s and mount some 35s then put em on.

I did ALMOST one today. I got the 33 off then one bead on but I can't get the other side of the tire to stretch over the rim.

I know everyone is just gonna say to go to discount BUT

1. Its expensive (about $100 to break down then mount/balance 4 tires).
2. 2 of the tires have patches that I don't know if the tire shop will mount them.
3. I have 1 pretty beat up rim that again I don't know if a shop will mount.


So who wants to give me a hand?

If I were closer I would and I have the tire tools to do it. If you want a cheap set go to the depot and buy two 3 foot metal concrete form stakes and use them to pry the tire off. They work like a charm.

Miramar auto hobby shop...

I did mine there... iirc, under $40 for everything, mounted and balanced, both machines will handle 35"s easily

I'd volunteer to sit around and make helpful comments but I have to work this weekend, and next

But the good news is that I just bought a new Luk clutch kit and flywheel uber cheap, bad news is I have to install it...

Thanks steve. I never thought about the hobby shops on base. I think I'll check it out.

If you don't mine me asking how much was the clutch and flywheel?

Im thinking about doing one myself soon

Picked up a Luk clutch kit (05-065) and a new (not a reman) Luk flywheel for $160 delivered, eBay. My clutch is toast and the flywheel is history, the clutch slips going up hills on the freeway...

While searching around I found partsboulevard on eBay, sells the Luk kit by itself for @ $120ish delivered. Dialaclutch has it for $160. Carolina Clutch used to have a good deal but since they apparently no longer offer free shipping on Luks, not such a good deal anymore.

The Luk clutch gets better than good reviews, supposed to be the OEM Jeep clutch. I pondered a stiffer clutch like the Centerforce, but I don't want to deal with a heavy pedal, plus, a lot of the JV crowd runs Luks with no problems so if Luk can handle the Hammers.....
