Back when I had 285x75 16s. I was running RE 3.5'' springs and a 1'' BL.

You should, in no way, take any of this personally. It's just business. So to recap, I come in peace, I mean you no harm, and you all will die. Gallaxhar out.

depends on the wheel offset, I had 33x12.50's on D window's on my silver 2006 that just had 2'' spacers and they fit but I didn't have much room for flexing. Its gonna be close to your sway bar at full flex if you don't have adjustable end links. My moab's on 285/75/16's rubbed on my white 2006 with a 2.5'' OME lift until I put adjustable enlinks on it to raise the sway bar out of the way. I also have currie front control arms, I've head some people have had problems with them on the stock ones. The pic I posted above this one is before the endlinks.

sorry, just realized I never answered this ... YES Duratracs are much smoother ride than old MTRs, only have about 5k on them now but so far wear is much more even ... biggest plus about the Duratracs is the wet pavement performance, mine is my daily driver and those MTRs were just too slippery on wet pavement, Duratracs have much better grip

DEFINITELY!!! I switched about 4 months ago and my DD has never been smoother. I haven't noticed any degradation in off-road performance either.

Thanks for the info on the Duratracs. I'm glad to hear they are better than the old MTRs. I'm tired of my stiff ride. I'm now torn between Durtracs or STTs in a 285/75/16 or possibly something in a 255/85R16.

Any rubbing with this setup? I have the OME 2" lift with heavy springs, trying to avoid a body lift and looking at this tire size.

Was going to go with 32x11.5 MTRs but I drive quite a bit in the snow, so looking at the duratracs.
