I ran Blizzaks in 265/70/17 on my Mopar steelies. They got me through a nice, icy upstate NY winter last year with no problems- just drive smart, and you'll be fine- Mark W.

The dude was 100% right- those are TJ fenders. Cheap toy alert! Mark W.

Edit- not to mention the proportions are way off. The rear doors are too small. Looks more like an H2!

Have fun with that- you'll have all kinds of problems in a few thousand with that thick of an oil, especially in the cold.

Suspension, and you can run 35's on the stock axles, but you'll want to beef up your front axle if you're wheeling it- Mark W.

Snow is not a big deal for M/T's. Drive smart, and keep it slow- you're still in a 2-ton, top-heavy vehicle! I'll be in the same boat with my JK, not far from you in Northern Dutchess County (maybe...

Here are my two concerns- if it moves, it won't be much use as a rocker guard. Also, if it moves only when you're stepping on it, there's a solid risk of slippage. I'll stick to my no-frills...

Still putting the weight and strain of the spare on the stock hinges. That's where about 2/3 of them break. Some crumple right in the middle, which a carrier like that MIGHT help, but I doubt it....
