Either is a good tire, Duratrac's have been the more popular from what I have seen on here. I wanted a good tire for a little offroad but still good for highway as I travel statewide for work. Best way to choose, what are your intentions/budget/expectations and find the best; P tire unless you are going big time use LT. I use TireBuyer.com which has good prices with free shipping. The Nitto is a 65k 500AB 113S tire for $150 each @ 265/70/17

just found a pretty good deal on a 2008 wk 4.7 4wd, decent miles and was wondering if there are ant downfalls the the engine? i have read that there have been issues with the engine block overheating and having to replace after about 40k miles. does anyone have any suggestions or info on this?
thanks guys for the info!
thanks guys for the info!
I would buy a 4.7 with no worries whatsoever. I have an 06' with only 55K on it which is not big deal but I have two friends with 2001 GC's that have the 4.7L. They both have had them for years. One has 140,000 miles with absolutely no problems. The other has 178,000 miles and has never had an issue with the engine. He says that within the last 20,000 miles or so he does burn a little oil between changes. I actually drove it for a few days last week and the motor runs smooth and strong. The friend with the higher mileage has beaten that Jeep for years. He bought it when he was 21 and did plenty of mud/snow and trails with it. He did go through a transmission at 80,000 miles which was his fault. He did not put enough tranny fluid in it when he changed it. He has broken axles a few times due to pushing the limits. Not one ounce of engine problems.
Hey guys just wondering if there is any brand of lights that is recommended? I mostly see KC and Hella's, and I am planning on doing the lights behind the grille mod. Just wondering if there are any size restraints so that the lights can fit behind there?

The 6" hella's work great behind the grill because the housing is relatively shallow compared to other lights. You could probably get away with using the 7" Hella's but I have no idea what it would look like. I think it might cover up too much of the grill for my taste, but to each their own! Other concern would be blocking airflow to the radiator. The Hella's are only 55w which is a bummer, but with upgraded wiring they can handle 100w bulbs.

Whats the largest r17 tire I can fit with no lift and with spacers and with the Pinch Weld Mod, too?
I think my answer may be the 255/70r17. Thoughts? has anyone gone larger?
