if you do a good built with solid parts Say a good 4 inch lift. and run 33's there is nothing other then a body lift or fender mod, a brake upgrade later down the road to put you into 35's

Because I can't justify huge costs to the girlfriend whereas if I do a little at a time I can explain that I need these things for other reasons.

It's not too much that I have to do really, 29 spline swap into the rear, heim joints for the steering. (mine are going bad anyway as Jerry pointed out last weekend) And losing my drop track bar mount and drop pitman arm.

If that's really true, you need to find a partner in life that supports you and your hobbies, or find hobbies that she supports.

When I bought my jeep it had 32" MTR's. Traded those for 33 TSL's. Traded those for 33" Boggers. Sold Those and bought some 35" Cooper STT's Bigger is better imo but with that being said. Id rather drive a locked jeep on 31's then a jeep with open carriers on 35's. It really is true It matters where you wheel what kind of trails yo see. Here in Washington state I can be going down a dry trail then suddenly come across a mud hole the size of a lake so people will be running some huge tires. When my jeep is "Done" ill be on 37's

33's will go 99 percent of the places 35's will and it costs a bit less to run them.

Never really understood how someone can say this as such a matter of fact statement. In some places sure. Where I live there are mud holes were every cm of clearance under the axle will help. I know of a specific hole I could not get through after 3 attempts on 33 BOGGERS. I then got through it first try on 35" Coopers The boggers were throwing way more mud but my axles kept dragging. The 35's lifted me just enough higher so the axles wouldnt drag.

Maybe you are just math challenged.

See, now your math is getting better. You found the 1% that proves his point.

Fact is The OP is fairly close to me and will see the same wheeling conditions. In our neck of the woods 35's will definetly be a difference over 33's.

I Personally think that Such a blatant statement should not be made since the answer does not accurately apply to the OP who asked the question

Don't drive in mudholes deeper than you have tires for.

best yet, look for the narrowest 35 you can find. Less weight/rolling resistance, and you can probably use your stock rims. win win

there isn't much option, but there are 35x10.50 ssr's and boggers, as well as 34x9.50 (or 10.50, not positive) LTBs. I'm yet to find something in more of a hybrid/mt tire.
