I don't know why, but new tires and wheels create a whole new dynamic for Jeeps. Congrats !

I agree.... New tires feel a bit different. Anybody recommend a place where i get my lift installed? I rather do it myself but my apartment is a bit anal about that kind of thing.

Give Jeep West a call, Dave Kishpaugh is doing all their work now. The shop is up in Sandy. He goes by Mudb8 on Jeep forum. IslandTJ and many others can attest to Dave's work.

CRAP!! I've now a check engine light on... The day after I installed the 33s. Code 0740 TCC ( torque converter clutch) solenoid. Do I need to flash my computer for new tire size?

Reset either through flash or battery disconnect and see if the issue reoccurs.

Thanks mate! While doing some research some people have found that if the transmission is overfilled it will set off the check engine light code P0740. Took it to oil can Henry's to get some fluid and disconnected the battery. Check engine light gone ( drove around for about 5 miles- still gone) thanks everyone !

If it's the solenoid, I believe you'll have to drop the pan. Messy but easy job... Good thing is the solenoid is not too expensive @ roughly $35.

Thanks man! But I need to hurry and get the Diy highline fenders mod on my jeep to make more room for the 33s and re-gear before too long.

For the 32RH auto transmission it is, but for stick, 4.56 puts you within the stock power band spectrum.

I don't run 35's, but many will opt for 4.88 gearing. I run 33's and my diff's are geared at 4.10.

So running 33" up here plenty enough? In Washington and Oregon?

I run 33's as my Jeep is my daily driver, if I go bigger - I'll have to upgrade at a minimum, my brakes and steering. I am able to wheel about roughly 90% of the trails at TSF/Browns Camp and head home with Jeep in 100% running order. I could do more on 35's but considering the cost of upgrades to make it work, it really isn't in my interest.

With 33's you can run 2 of the funnest trails at TSF IMO, Firebreak 5 and Rocky Uphill.

Firebreak 5

This is the 2nd section of Firebreak 5, after the Rock of Doom.

The 1st Jeep in the Rocky Uphill is a Rubicon and has factory front and rear lockers. The white XJ Cherokee is locked in the front with an ARB locker. I am NOT locked but I am running front and rear limited slips - Detroit TrueTracs.

Nice videos IslandTJ!! i agree with the daily driver thing you said, way too many upgrades needed if i go any higher than 33s. my braking abilities are less than desirable with 33s. I was told by Nik at Jeep West that the upgrade from 4.11 to 4.88 was necessary for the 42lre transmission to keep it from overheating under heavy loads. I dont know if his right but i rather be safe than sorry, besides that my budget only allows necessary expenditures to maintain full mission capable status - and things that i can do for free when i have the time away from my "study,fly, eat, shit, sleep, repeat" routine
