I love the way 35's look on a JKU,that's the size I'm going for. And Nittos are my choice too. Just not sure yet if I want Mud grapplers or Trail grapplers. My concern is how will they handle the snow and ice? I think trail grapplers are a little better for that.

How is the gas mileage now? Did it suffer? Are you going to leave stock 4:10's on? Did you have to replace the tire carrier to fit the 35 spare?

Thanks!

I had trail grapplers on my last jeep and they saw a fair share of snow and wet roads. They caused me no problems.
I have a LoD rear bumper and tire carrier. I don't think I would want to put these on a stock carrier.
The 4:10s with the new engine and tranny is a great combination. I don't think I will be changing.
I need to put some miles on other than to and from work to really check the MPG but without a doubt with the after market bumpers and the new tires that it will take a hit. But it is what it is for me.

I have a hand held Garmin GPS,, I will check rpm at 70 tomorrow.
As far as spacers,, I had the same set up on my 08 and it didn't really cause any issues after 20000 miles. When I put the new rock rails on this weekend it will be better also.
It drives great so far but the front track bar will make it even better.

Speaking of new shoes, can you remove the sensor valve stems from the OEM wheels and put on aftermarket rims instead of buying a whole new set? I've never had a tire psi monitoring system and am clueless as to how they work. Whats the procedure?

Yes, you can. I drove my Jeep to the local tire store and had them remove the TPMS sensors out of the stock tires and put them into the new wheels and mount 35" tires on the new wheels.
