Nice rig man.I am trying to decide between 285/70r17's and 305/65r17's.

2.5" Skyjacker, 32" KM's, Smittybilt 8000lbs winch, painted Moabs.

Thanks... The one thing to think about is tire weight. In the BFG KM2 the 285 is 60lbs and the 305 is 67lbs. Not a big difference, but it all adds up and robs power. 285\70 also has a little more sidewall...

I know that you want to see 33 inch tires though the MTR/K's in 35x12.5x17 are closer to a 34 and have a load range (C). This makes them lighter and better suited to our JK's
Here is mine with OME heavy springs and the above mentioned tires.

I've thought about that, I may just go with 285/70r17s andput spacers on so that they stick out further. I think I am going to go with BFG KOs.

Good point... I do like the MTR's... Might be my next tire in a 35 once I regear to 5:13.

Looks good man, I just don't want to have to regear.

I still have the 3.21 gears and a six speed.
It's not as bad as one would think though I will be re-gearing to 4.88 as soon as I get my ARB locker!

Will the 285/75/17 mount up to the stock carrier with no mod or spacer? It seems that my stock 255/75 is close. I cant see that another inch will fit to well. or am i wrong?

OK, then...the hood is not supposed to flop up and down??

Dang, all this time and I thought it was the famous Jeep Wave!! ~bluegrassguitar

Bajafanatic,

Read your profile and it looks like your sahara is similar to mine. I have a 4-speed 3.73 ratio and I've been reading that upgrading to a 33" tire like the MT ATZ AT results in loss of MPG speedo higher rpms power etc. How does yours run with the tires and 3.5" lift? I'd prefer not to lift it but it seems there's no way around it if I want the larger tire size of a 33".

I think my non lift option is a 2" BB ... but the idea of it sounds cheap and non quality.

Looks good!

How do the OME HD springs ride on the blacktop without a heavy load in the vehicle?
