Twas lots of fun--- also demonstrates that it is not always the diff clearance that gets us hung up; actually, for me, that is most of the time it isn't the diff, but the belly clearance.

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by its clean end!

X2. People are just hyper sensitive now a days for some reason. Grab a beer, hike up your skirts and chill. This is a jeep forum not a Prius forum.

Tire choice is based on the look you like and what type of wheeling you will be doing. I use BFG All Terrain T/A KO's 35" on my daily driver, light wheeling. 33" tires or the 285 if you will, do not look horrible but man do the 35" fill out the wheel wells better. For me its always about the stance of a vehicle and these JK's need 35" tires. Its like seeing all these guys and their F-350 pickups with factory tires that on that truck, look like they are from a golf cart. If you dont lift it 33" is fine but even a 2.5" lift needs 35" tires. I look at mine sometimes and think boy I wish I had 37" tires. Goodyear Duratracs are great tires on ice, snow and mud but are harsher riding and make a little more noise than BFG All Terrains.

Thanks; Procomp 1059. They were on sale at 4WP for $85 each when I got them.

Like others said, look, feel, clearance all factor in. So does overall cost.
I was a high-miler and overlander more than a rock crawler. I needed to consider wear items and mpg more than other things.
33s were the economical choice for me; and the Cooper STTs managed all the terrain that I came in contact with.
Gone camping,

not the same Hilldweller as the one on shtf website
