they look pretty much the same...actually you can't tell a difference just from looking at them...the only difference is the edges are more rectangular

check this out...you'll see what i'm talkin about...theres a pic and label/description on the right when you scroll down a little

http://www.rockcrawler.com/

edit-i posted a direct link to the bfg muds but it wouldnt do it so you'll have to click the "tech" tab/circle on the left and then scroll down and you'll see a wheel and tire section on the left and bfg muds will be there and you'll see what i'm talkin about

I think what they are talking about is the switch from the Goodyear MTR's to the BFG M/T's for 2007 Rubicons.

No, they actually DID change the BFG Mud terrains for the JK. They look different than my New ones. I have a JP magazine and they showed a JK with the BFG Muds and they have a special tread design for the JK. There was a caption that said so and it was easy to see.

That's ok, Kat. I expect in just a bit, after J Rations becomes better known, no one will read JP anymore. Not if they don't change their attitude.

Personally, I have trouble believing that a special tread was created just for a specific vehicle, but who knows....

heck yes...i run my 32's with no lift...i don't rub on the road...but i did hit a few dithces this weekend where it gets your suspension really twisty and flexy and i did rub but 2 inches should solve that. as long as you don't disconnect your sway bar you will be fine with no rubbing even at full flex...if you disconnect your sway bar you'll probably rub a little though

i will agree with bigjeep here i also notice a traction increase on blacktop during rain over my craptastic goodyear GS-A's

i had a set on a previous 2500 and they also wore great the guy still has them on it and i see it driving around almost 2 years later. they look about half worn.

hope that helps

I don't know if it is just me, but I have to laugh every time someone mentions that they like to listen to their tires.
