I finally went off roading with my new tires. I went to La Selva which is located in the town of Luquillo, Puerto Rico. Really nice place, not too hard, not too easy. It'a a mix of beach, sand, mountains, dirt trails, rocky trails, a little river crossing (which was really low that day cause' it hasn't rained a lot there).
Got a little of mud on my JK and a LOT of dust and sand. The picture is after getting out of a small muddy place and going up a rocky hill. that was like halfway the fun, we later went up the mountain in rocky and dirt trails which finally let me test my Jeep. I have to tell you, I LOVE MY DICK CEPEK MUD COUNTRY TIRES!!!
I do have to tell you, 33s without a lift WILL RUB!!! By the time the wheels were articulating up/down and any other positions, I could hear the rubbing even on the rear, and it wasn't hitting the trail, it was the tires hitting the dam or the fender. Lucky I was going slow so no damage done.
Anyone that tells you they won't rub, either don't do off road or have a lift.
I'm getting my lift this Friday, 2.5" teraflex.
BTW, my tires are 33/12.5R17
