I made a thread like this awhile back but i finally got some all terrain Kenda tires. About 29" or 30". I was thinking about a 2.5" suspension lift, maybe a superchip, wench and a light kc bar. Ill mostly be mudding but i do some trail riding
Yeah, 30" would be too small on a jk with a 2.5" lift...smallest i'd run would be 33's
that being said, i dont think your gf/wife will appreciate being called a wench. Going with a winch, however, you should look into spacers up front or other springs to compensate for the weight. You should also look into a new battery such as a Diehard P4 in order to maintain starting power after winching.
What kind of muddin are we talking about? I wouldnt run that new of a rig in the mud Im picturing. If you have room to park it, find another 4wd to make a mudder out of. You could pick up a lifted XJ for what a nice set of tires will cost you. Weld the rear end, put a lunchbox locker in the front end and find some boggers on craigslist...
This is the shallow end of this field.. The white yota is on 38s and the yota trying to pull him out is on 35" race cut boggers with 400hp and couldnt budge him with like a 60-80' run on the strap. Is this the kind of muddin your talking about? Cause your resale is gonna drop quick if it is.lol
