32's or 34's will be perfectly fine with your front driveline. The front end see's less than half of the forces the rear see's.

However I would assume you are probably talking about a 34" swamper? They are actually as close to a full tire as you will find. My 35" Mickey's actually measure out to like 34.4 when brand new.

Thats good to hear. So I should go with the 34's then? They are only 9.5" wide (8" tread) so that will be a little easier on the drive line as well Id imagine. You are correct, Im refering to the TSL Super Swamper they make. Its actual size comes out to be 33.8" if I remeber right. Im sure the rear alloy shafts will hold, and if you say the front isnt as bad Im sure it can handle the Aussie and those tires. So I will run a 1.25" JKS bl, and the 2.5" Rancho RC lift. That could clear those 34's with plenty of room to flex.

Sorry guys, that means Im keepin my old gears too since I'll actually be going UP 1" in tire size.

I know. Damn all this talking about it! Its makin me sway from my original plans. The only reason I want the 34's now is because it would look cool, like a military style tire on there. Ok, official poll. Should I stick to my guns and run the 31's or should I go up onto 34's instead? I need the advice. Im easily swayed at this point...

Sheesh, you two were quick to jump on that question. It would be pretty cool too. Alright, I will start looking for a place to try and get them cheap now.
