Joe - I have an auto with 3.73 and yes, I am getting less MPGs. I don't have any figures yet as it is too soon. However, you can feel the extra power needed to get it underway but once up to speed, it has dropped my RPM about 300 at 65MPH. Have you recalibrated yet? I am waiting for the pro cal so I can accurately see what I am doing to my MPG. I will let you know! Ken

Rides great but I have no base line to compare to. Had the dealer install them before I picked it up. Size is so close to the stock Rubicon tire that I don't anticipate any problems however I've ordered a procal to correct the spedo.
Let us know if you have any issues. This is exactly what I'd like to do, since I have the steel wheels as well.

Upsized from the stock but still kinda stock. 255/70r18 where as stock was 225/on16r

This is where the 2dr would be nice. 4dr is a little to long.

They look awesome...did you have to adjust backspacing or not?

I am soooo glad this thread is proving to be of worth! Amazing looking Jeeps with no lift!!

I want to update you folks that my ProCal arrived today. It took 10 minutes from opening the package to having my recalibration compete. What an amazing difference! I was really surprised at how much more sluggish my rig felt before the recalibration reclaimed my shift points! It now feels like the day I picked up my Sport with the original tires. I went out on the highway and I feel like the speed is accurate judging from the traffic around me. I set the cruise control for 65 MPH. After about 26 miles I had a reading of 21.1 MPG. So I think the additional drag of the beefier rubber is clearly offset by the reduction of 300-400 RPM at 65 MPH. Essentially no milage lost...at all for highway speeds!

I plan to have my brother-in-law co-pilot with me with his GPS to check the accuracy of the recal. Once I am sure that I am accurately recalibrated, I will get back and report my city milage results. The ProCal is GOLD!!

You look like you have lots of clearance, even with the 285's! What spring rates do you have...19/60's?

I got it from the Quadratrac place that advertises on this site. Just ordered it off the website and free shipping to Alaska! I will use them again!

33" nitto grapplers on 1.5" spidertrax spacers. No lift or coil spacers. I do think i'll be adding terraflex coil spacers and/or cutting the fenders soon though. Was getting some rubbing this weekend on the trail.

If you look at your springs, they should have a tag. The last two numbers represent the stiffness. 19 front and 60 rear represent the highest stiffness and add about an inch or two to a stock sport.
