First Jeep first post

2000 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4.0. My son wanted to go offroading so I took him back on my motocross track. I found out what I cant do with stock height and only 30" tires! Kinda got stuck ...

What model tires, in the picture they look like street tires and did you air down?

I didn't think about dropping the pressure.... The tires are Wrangler T/A 30x9.50x15. They are really bald and need replaced. I just bought this used about 2 weeks ago. I have a brand new BF Goodrich 30" on the back that I thought about going with all the way around. When I get new tires I want to go as big with stock height as I can. The wife won't let me lift it yet.....

Airing down won't help if you're high-centered.

Wranglers never get stuck, they just get " slowed down temporarily"! At least that's what I tell myself!
