Second to final Jeep Mod

So I have done all the things I want to do to my Jeep with the exception of the tire carrier that I will make this winter. 31s to 33 KM2 tires. This is my daily driver so this is as high as it will go.

Thanks. The 33x10.5x15 tires will still allow me to pass inspection here in Utah. I will make the tire carrier some time this winter. Right now the tire is on the back of the Jeep like stock. I need to raise it up as it rubs on the sand and rocks in Moab. I do not want to bend up the Jeep.

I can't think of anything else I need. It has been tucked properly, locked in both the front and rear with ARBs. 33" tires, BL & TT & dana 44 with disc brakes. Aftermarket stereo, subs, two new bumpers along with a winch, speed bleeders, Savvy gas skid, adjustable rear uppers, SYE, Tom Wood shaft, new gears, soft and hard top, JKS disconnects, grab handles everywhere. I am not sure what more I need since it will always be my daily driver.

Very nice. Those are the tires I want, but my hubby says 32" are sufficient. *grumble* I like the "skinny" ones, too. They have the best look since they don't stick out past the flares. =)

You'd be surprised how much more you could do to your Jeep, even as a daily driver. You'll always be able to find something you want to add/modify/subtract... It's like working on your house. By the time you get to the end of your list, it's time to start over from the beginning again.

Did you have any rubbing with the 31s and the stock wheels?

I have those same BFGs but the PO used aftermarket wheels and I'd like to go back stock.

The tires will rub at full turning radius, but with my Spidertrax spacers there is no rubbing. My 31s were the same width as my new 33s although I think the KM2s run a little small in width. I can keep everything under the stock flares though and that is a requirement where I live. I do not want to lose my white fender flares.

When I saw the title of your thread, like the previous poster I thought "oh suuure it is", but it looks like you have a well thought out plan, executed nicely. Nice Jeep, now go and build another one, you know you want too! Lol

have you measured actual diameter of those tires? i'm looking to go with a very similar plan to what you've got and would like to know.
