Welcome to JeepFourm. 5.13 gears, Auto. Not a daily driver, I had 35 inch toyos and the 5.13 gears. These 37s roll better, they say 12.5 wide, but are only 11.5 wide. The Toyos were 12.5 wide, not sure if that is why these roll better. Jeep is getting a little better mpg, maybe .5 to 1 mile better? They are not light, 135lb per tire. These are the only 37s I have had, not sure how they compare to other tires. I like them, I would buy them again

I just put 37 Goodyears with Kevlar on and i am getting 1.5 mpg better than Nitto 35s. Also with 5:13s and auto. Mine weigh in at 102lbs, the same as the 35s did. I think the tranny and 5:13 is just the right combo with 37s. Mine is a daily driver

Your Jeep looks awesome, btw
They extensively, totally, completely cover the whole entire tire all the way absolutely...



... sometimes.

Actually they suck for keeping things off the Jeep. If it's nice and clean and I roll through just some shallow water from someone's sprinkler getting in the road, it's all over the side. If we get a bunch of snow, when it's thick and slushy late in the morning, it'll shoot 20 foot rooster tails. It rolls down the road slinging snow up past the hood, kinda funny.

Yep, that was me. Just send me an IM or something when you're ready and I'll help ya figure out your lift if ya need it. I might be doing another trail in a week or two, possibly with cbloyer81 if you wanna tag along.
