I have the 3.73 gears in my 2010 JKU, 2.5 lift and I am running 285 70 17.... I have the superchips flashpaq so as of right now i am getting about 15 on streets and 17.5-18.3 on highway. I want a little bigger tire i know i shouldnt put 35s since that will totally kill my gas mileage, i live in Anaheim and drive to LA for work...so now i have decided between 285 75 17 bfg km2 or 305 70 17, opinions on what would look better? and how bad of mileage i would get? the 285 70 17 just looks slightly too small to me i have at ko's right now, appreciate the help!
I have an 07' JKUS on 35's with 18" wheels and 4.10 gears. Without any tuning adjustments (other than tire size for the Spedo) I average 16.8 combined highway/city on very hilly terain. If you really want the look 35's get you, step up your gears. You'll really appreciate the extra quickness you get as well.
I dont remember gas ever being 2 bucks a gallon....
It was just under $2.00 in January 2009.
Back in 2000 I remember it being 88 cents in Sugar Land, TX. Two stations would have a price war, one was always a cent higher than the other. Everywhere else it was around a buck. I had a Ram 2500 4x4 with a 360 and 4.10's. Good times they were.

Power was "okay", the 3.6l pentastar on 35's is still stronger.
I was definitely thinking about regearing, but it was livable.
I wouldn't try to tow that way though.
You DO have a JK though..that 500 pounds less really makes a difference.
