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.

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!

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!
