I agree w/Matt. You go HD on all your parts for 35s and get robbed. I did the AGR box/bracket, shimmed it all correctly, hd steering stabilzer, D44 rear w/hd gears etc. I should be strong enough for 38s! But try to find a shop that will order 2 or 3 sets of tires to see which look/fit the best. It's a crap shoot, for the easiest thing to mount on a Jeep....that will also have the most effect on handling and off road performance.


I've also learned that sometimes... when people don't agree with you .... its best to hold them down and kidney punch them till they agree with you

This is mine with a 4.5 RE and 33's. Drivability does suffer but I guess we all know that. I would stay at 33s.

35's, DD weather permitting as I only have a bikini top and half doors, and wouldn't have it any other way.
I probably put close to 300 miles a week on it, and the only part that bothers me is on the highway with high winds blowing. That's when I simply take to the back roads.

Well, after checking out Skizrizs' 35"BFG T/As...I did the same. My rough country lift and .375 shackles still make my tires look small. I'm doing a YJ roll bar, but I'll still need a rope ladder to get in it!

Some people are like slinkeys, good for nothing but bring a smile to your face when pushed down a flight of stairs

bugazon, see that looks proportional. I have those on Mrs Hutchs' Sequoia, and they pull like crazy through mud. The deep gooey, cow flop kind that will drag you down to the axles w/a bad tire in a hurry. You'll love 'em!
