Teraflex, JKS, Metalcloak. I wouldn't touch a Rough Country setup with a 50' pole.

3.5" left
2" right
Both a Rubicon, both on 37" tires.
I like sharing this picture so folks can have a good idea.
I prefer the 3.5" personally.
Good luck!!

Rock Krawler is a good one to check out too. I went with the 2.5Ē adventure series kit and Iím pretty happy with it. I installed it a few days before I got my wheels and could not tell a difference in the way it rode vs factory. Once I got my wheels and tires it became stiffer Iím guessing because the tires have much stiffer sidewalls.

I put on Nitto Ridge Grappler 35x12.50R18LT 128q 12p.r.

I know thatís a 12 ply tire. It changed the ride significantly but Iím not sure you can get that tire in a softer load can you? Honestly I never payed attention to that when I ordered them.

Yeah, thatís basically a load range E tire. Iím planning on a load range C tire for my JLU. The ones I wanted are on back order, so Iím stuck running the stock tires for now. I like tire size.com for tire shopping, it has a lot of good info if you spend a little time looking at different sizes & brands.

That site does have a ton of info. It says my tires are F load rating on there and appears to be the only option in that size/model. I picked that tire based on the tread pattern and never considered the load rating. Just curious, what tire did you pick that was a C rating?

I like Toyo tires, so I figured a set of Toyo all terrain tires would work for the first couple years of daily driving my new JLU. I am not planning on a lift for a couple years so I donít void the warranty. I want the largest tires that will work OK without a lift. 285/75-17ís will fit the OEM wheels, and spare tire carrier. At 33.9Ē tall they will provide the appearance I am looking for, over the stock 32Ē street tread Michelinís. The local shop where I buy my tires from couldnít get them last month, but Iím going to call them this week and have them check again. I know I could get them online, but I try to spend money locally as much as I can for some stuff.

One good thing about running 12 ply tires is, I doubt you will get many flat tires.

Yeah I like Toyo tires as well. Iím pretty sure Nitto and Toyo are technically the same company. I run Toyo Proxes II on my Chevy Avalanche and love them. I probably would have got Open Country ATs this time if the Ridge Grapplers hadnít caught my eye. My old JK had Nitto Terra Grappler AT2 on it and they were bad to pick up rocks and sling them out at 60mph and I figured Open Countryís ATs would be the same.
