AT's or MT's

Okay I put 32 inch AT's on my 012 wrangler in May. I recently acquired springs and shocks from a four door rubi and put them on my 2 dr sport. I got about an inch and half lift out of it and I'm considering a set of 34 inch tires now. 35's are just too heavy and I have concerns about the Dana 30 strength. MT 's or AT's I can't decide. Your opinions would be appreciated

Your Dana 30 will be fine. I run 37's on mine. Also there's really not that much weight difference between 34's or 35's. Mist 35's mesure out smallere then 35. Now to your main question AT or MTs. That depends on how you use your Jeep. If you use it mostly on pavement and light trail use go ATs. If you do more trails and rocks go with an MT.

The JK's have a bit wider axle width and Jeep didn't increase the thickness of the housing to compensate. If you are staying under 35's you should be fine. Most guys recommend sleeves and C gussets for 35's or larger on the JK's though. Evo sells them pretty cheap, just need to find someone to weld them for you.

Thanks appreciate the offer. I have Falken AT's on there now and the 34's weigh 72 lbs a piece. I think I'm going with duratracs at about 60 pounds. Nonissue with that rate the stock goodyears weighed 54. I love the Falkens but the weights not worth it especially. With 3:21's in the rear
