Xpress No kidding, I swear my YJ and its leaf springs gave a smoother ride than his 98 Tacoma 4x4 does..

banks316 WOW 50psi that must have been a stiff ride

Xpress Go Silent Armors. They're Kevlar re-enforced and I've seen them take massive abuse. A buddy only got 25,000 miles out of them, but he had it in his thick head that they needed to be ran at 50psi at all times because it said on the sidewalls to seat the bead at 50psi. He also drove exactly how you would expect the typical 18 year old cocky teenager to drive, HOWEVER I have seen them last over 60,000 easily, mostly road use.

banks316 WranglerJR83 very nice, really like the trim job you did

WranglerJR83 I'm running 32s on my YJ with stock suspension. I had to trim my flares a little, but they fit.

banks316 I hate my Goodyears, can't wait till I can get a set of swampers.

AKohler883 i see that now, I was looking at regular Goodyear Wrangler tires (not sure why they list both), and yeas they are $148 ... but NOT AVAILABLE.
I would still spend $9 extra dollars and go with the BFG's.
In my opinion, all Goodyears (car and truck tires) wear WAY too fast.
Best I have found are Coopers.

AddictedtoWranglers11 They are 148 here

AKohler883 Wait, you think $212 is a good price for tires at Walmart ?
I would rather go with the BFG's for $157

banks316 Wouldn't need new shocks with with a 1.25 shackle lift.

I have 30 9.50 right now on 15x7 rims. I just want to "fill" the space a little more. Thats why I dont want to do the 2.50 lift. Then I would want to go bigger. I have looked at a 1.25 shackle but Dont know if I would need new shocks?

wwch99tj I've got the tires on my Tj. I don't have any complaints about them. They are noisier than the other AT's I had, but I like that about them.

I've got about 5k miles on mine now with no noticeable wear

Edit the tires actually measure 30.4" tall

Beachcruiser Yes, you can run 31's on those rims w/ no problems on the street. You'll get some rub offroad, tho.

1" body lift + TJ flares & some trimming w/ give you most of the room you'll need.

Can this be done?

Hey guys I just bought a 95 yj to "mess around" in. I love jeeps but am really new to doing mods to them. My question is...... I just ordered 5 Dick Cepek dc-2s 15x8 with 3 and 5/8 bs, Can I run 31 10.50 on stock suspension? I am willing to buy a shackle lift but would like to stay away from a 2.50 lift. So could it be done? Also does anyone know anything about the Goodyear Authority tires from Walmart? Lame I know but the PRICE is just too good. HAHA thanks for the advice ahead of time.
