Tires.
 
I am getting new bigger tires! Here is what I narrowed it down to....
Nitto mud grappler
General grabber red label(they are heavy though)
Mickey Thompson claw
Tell me what you think!

I would stay away from the Mickey Thompson claw, They have a 23 angle just like a farm tractor tire ...which gives them great traction. The problem that comes with that angle is when you're backing up it becomes a rolling tire no traction.
I'm running the Mickey Thompson MTZ's and I'm really impressed with them! I've aired down to 9 pounds without bead locks with no problem at all.

I know they are totally a forward tire forshure because of the tread design, but is it That significant? I wheel hard but not the off camber stuff. To make backing up scary.

Why are you going more mud tire than trail tire?

I've been incredibly happy and impressed with my general red letters. Great in snow mud and rocks.

In my opinion yes it is! If you wheel by yourself like I do occasionally... Your tires should be able to move You forward as well as backwards...
It's the ONE time you absolutely have to be able to back up and you can't...
I just think there's a lot of tires out there that give you Better performance regardless of the direction you're traveling. LIKE I SAID I REALLY LIKE MY MTZ'S...

How do you like them? I've been considering for my tj.

I've got nitto mud grapplers on mine. And I love them, haven't had any issues I couldn't get out of. They are a little noisy on the highway but I kinda like it. The gaps between the tread clear out on their own, in doing so it throws whatevers in there all over the place. But again, I dont mind. So no complaints here... Just wish they were a little cheaper.

I love em, my cj7 doesnt get driven much so I got these maxis 35/12.50/15
on dana44, and amc20.
1. DEEP lugs and great for every terrain but ice, clean in mud OMG I can crawl in mud its awesome!
2. Amazing sidwall, however I have to air them down to 6 but dont go there without beadlocks and throttle. The side wall is still so lots of airing down, I now do 10 in front 8 in back. I knew I cant afford beadlocks soon.
3. Amaxing sidewall, oh I said that? but they are really expensive when you hit size of 37.
-They make em sticky and non.

About the grapplers noise is just dandy, I dont care they look like a very good around tire.
