Mine was a Sport so it had the stock SRA tires. They were the first to go and be replaced with some much heavy duty tires with stronger sidewalls.

In your 40's? Man, I wish I were. I'm 69 have a 2011 Sport and contemplating getting a new Rubicon. I'll be off-roading for as long as I can still walk and breathe.

2011 JK Sport owner here. No animosity towards Rubicon, in fact I'm going through a big internal debate on whether to buy one or not. Problem is, I'm retired, and that might be a lot of cash to...

What is 'BLD'?

I see the term BLD used a lot. Not to sound like a stupid question, but what is it?
Is it the same as traction control. I have a 2011 JK. I know it has traction control, but does it have BLD?

Staying with the 2011

I have no doubt that a 2015 Rubicon or Willys is a definite improvement both on and off road compared to my 2011. However, there is one place the 2011 will go without getting stuck that a new...

Looks good. Do they fit without a lift as they are a taller tire? Any effect on transmission shift points. I prefer the tall and narrow with a strong sidewall. About 6 mo. ago put 255/75x17 GY...

To buy or not to buy the JK 6 spd

Had new Goodyear Silent Armor tires installed

Had the stock SRA's on my 2011 JK replaced with 255/75x17 Wrangler Silent Armors. A world of difference. Next will replace the stock shocks with Monroe monotube gas ones.

Smile Silent Armors installed; about a 10x stronger sidewall than stock STE's

Finally had the Goodyear SilentArmors mounted today. Size was stock - 255/75x17. With both the original SRA's and Silent Armors unmounted I was able to compare the sidewalls - I'm not exaggerating...

Went with Silent Armors

Just ordered a set of Silent Armor 255/75x17 at the local Discount Tire. Did not want to go down in size to 265/70x17 or do spaces/lifts for a larger size. Like the high/narrow profile of the stock...
