Running 37" tires look nice and work well offroad, but they are also a lot more expensive to buy and maintain. The added wear to the axles, brakes, added unsprung weight that could bend a stock axle, etc... all add up to more expenses in addition to the cost of tires and suspension adjustments to clear those larger tires. Your Jeep will not be nearly as expensive to keep maintained with 33" tires. All Jeeps look good. Build what you like.

sorry man, didn't mean to ruin your game.

hehe... just kidding, I have 33's as well. I was pissed I did not have my camera, I stopped at a fair last summer. Well, you know how all jeeps park together right? I came out to my white YJ that I backed in next to another white YJ and while I was in there 2 more white YJs showed up! Now I live in a small town, to see 4 white YJs together was quite odd!

there's some guy around my small town that runs (when it works) an older japanese pick up that's got about an 18" lift with tires nearly arm pit high. The bottom of his rig was at shoulder level....pretty stoopid IMHO..... I've seen him parked at the A&W stand. He had figured a way to scramble up using his front tire while his passenger actually used a short step ladder to climb in.

The juvenile crowd around here seem to go for the "tall tires means something" theory.

The rest of us somehow manage to creak by without needing the flash.

Frankly it's pretty much flare-and-display of the reptilian neck ruffles IMHO.

Ride what you want, don't expect sympathy or adoration though.

going a lot bigger you probably might want to get that speedo device to have your speedo read right.

Imagine how guys in TJs and YJs feel, some of who are running on the equivalent of 27s and 28s, when a stock JK pulls up. Not imagine a JK on 37s. no wonder we TJers have little man syndrome

But here's the truth. No matter how big you get, there is always some one out there with a bigger better rig. Makes yours unique, special, and how you like it. Whatever gets you where you need to go, and makes you happy is all you need.

x2 what Golden said!

Make the jeep what you want it to be. Not something you won't be happy with just to beat someone else. It's not a competition. It's your toy after all! Need to be suited to your joy-gasim!!!!
