Tires are a big difference I love my 37s and wouldn't change then for anything but bigger, specially with my 4" long arm lift, yes my gas mileage dropped but nothing 500 wont fix by just regearing it, I also just sold my cummins made 650hp and over 1400 ft lbs of torque on 35s dynode 1 hour later with my friends 33s and did 710 a over 1450 tq.

What year is your JK? and did you have sirius prior to swap? I did nothing to mine to get it to work, but I have a 2013 sahara with sirius stock so it uses the same antenna for NAV. I am told prior to 2010 sirius and NAV were two different antennas...

I guess the guy is right. He said they will beat up the JK after a while. 35's are a safe bet.

Yeah I saw yours and I was set on 37's until I went to the store yesterday to make a deal on some wheels. I told him my plans and he effectively talked me out of it lol.

This weekend I installed my Spiderwebshade ultramesh cover (got over 100 degrees this weekend - this was a lifesaver!), a pair of Mopar oval side steps (bought off the forum and he even helped me toss em on - rubi rails will be up for sale soon) and used my JAMpegs foot pegs for the first time. I LOVE DRIVING MY JEEP!

I would say 33s are more of the "safe" bet, from what I understand 35s will still create issues with your driveshaft. I think you will be safe with teh stock axels on 35s, but you will obviously need a lift, and probably a drive shaft and regear.

If you're worried about fuel economy, I went from the stock 32s to a 33x10.5, and I lost 1.5-2mpg after procal. The larger you go the worse it will get.

I could be wrong on the 35s though. I would do a search for a thread where someone else has done the same as you are looking at, and if you cant find one, start a new topic and ask for advice. I would trust the advice of this forum over a local guy. no offense to him, there is just a ton of good info on here and a lot of experienced Jeepers who have gone through the trial and error process already.

I run 315 70 17 Duratracs that measure 33.75 with a RK 2.5 & 5100 Bilsteins. No shaft issues, ride is good and love the stance. I average 16.5mpg mixed driving on 3.21 gears.

Rear sway bar end links

I had my Jeep all ready to install a new set of extended Skyjacker sway bar end links, when I realized that the package I was shipped is missing nuts.... Unfortunately, the stock nuts do not fit on the supplied bolts. Looks like I'll be calling Skyjacker tomorrow morning. I share the blame for my frustration as I did not open the package until I had the current ones off!

I was at work when my jeep to a bath from Mother Nature. She didn't do a very good job cleaning the inside. At least the seat was dry by the time I got off work. Now to find where to cut the carpet to pull it out.

luckily you don't have to cut much (or at all if you're willing to remove a handful of bolts). Pretty much pulls right out

That's what it is. I have a 13 jku but don't have sat radio. Maybe I'll get it installed.
