While we are on topic regarding 35s with 3.21s, how do you think the BFG ATs in 35x12.5R15 (54lbs each) would feel with a manual 2010 and 3.21s compared to 33x12.5R15 (49lbs each)?

This just shows your a novice. Any good sales manager will allow you to take the vehicle overnight as they know it's easier to sell something that's already been accepted into the family.

Also, how do you think so many new vehicles end up with a couple hundred miles on them? Do you really think they're driven 5 miles at a time?

I guess I'm just considering the weight difference more than the diameter. I know both are going to affect everything but I wouldn't think it be much different starting with it and the bigger tires. Before the combo, I used to run 60 lbs MTS.

1st gear is very short/low in our 6 speed. I always wondered if there is "room to play"
so to speak. Or if that even makes a difference or not.
I might be doable depending on your driving style.
I do mostly city stop and go. Would not work for me.

before i bought my jeep i knew nothing about gears, I am coming from my FJ cruiser, and they only came one way from the factory, if i would have know better i would have got 3.73s in my jeep. I might go over to the dealer ship and see if they will let me drive one with all the goodies and see how it drives. Because know i thinking about buying a teraflex 2.5 inch shocks and springs to put in my jeep. I just didn't now if the weigth of ducatrac would make this possible because they only weight 60 lbs, Most tires in that 35 range in the 70-85 lbs range a piece. That is alot of weight to get moving.

If you plan on offroading the extra 1"? of clearance from the 35s might be helpful, plus it will probably look better too. However, if this is a daily driver I would recommend the 33s as the will have a much smaller affect on the rpm. From what I've heard the 2012 with 3.21s is similar to the 2007-2011 with 3.73s, and lots of people seem to run 33s on is setup with no problems

I now the 33s probably wont affect the power and handling that bad. This thing is like driving a go cart. But i think the 35s will take the light and great handling away, because it has awhole lot more tire to move. I just wish the duractracs came in a size between. There is just not much difference from stock to a 32.8 inch duractrac
