That's not his rig Bill. He's just giving us an example of the mod bug. Lol. Seems like I remember seeing those pics at JKO, but I could be wrong.

I will admit, I had a little chuckle at the JK-F breakup line.

Also notice how as the tire gets bigger, it gets dirtier.

Wow, nice comparisons. Go any bigger and you won't be able to fit in/out of that parking garage!

I think it looked the best at 35s and 4" and then again at 38s and flat flares. He could have run those 35s with flatties and just the 2.5 and saved a bunch but hey its a Jeep!

IMO the 38-40s are pure over kill.

I would agree that they are for 99% of Jeepers out there. But there are those few folks that like to ride some INSANE trails where the largest ground clearance possible is desired. Was watching a video recently and it showed a sign at the entry to a trail that suggested a minimum of 39" tires!
