37s? New Jeeper and I want new tires

Ok SO i hope the attachment is there. This Jeep i got it a couple of days ago, 07 Unlimited Sahara, not sure what size tires it's got now, but I've been hearing and looking at 37s all over the internet. i Really want to make it look more like a Jeep and, for me, tires do the trick.

I hear the negative side is that my mpg's drop, and some other things about the inside of the car...which I'm not too familiar with.

Please help, I hope this is not a repeat question. I am new to Jeeps and to forums.

Cheers and thank you for the info, will be looking at more of your posts, there are some awesome wranglers out there

Depending on your wallet and the quality of those items--the TOTAL END COST, could be a lot higher--in other words, you can't just throw a set of 37" tires on (I love the idea too) and expect everything to work-cause it won't !!

can this be accomplished with any other smaller set of tires? meaning skipping some of the steps like the lift, new axles, regear?

You can fit 35 inch tires with a 2.5 inch lift and new rims, and you dont have to reagear or get new axles unless you want to. It's a very poular combo.

My plan in October is to get a jku on 35s with rims and regeared with a 2.5" tera flex lift... Bumpers can wait and are very easy to do yourself, you can do them 1 at a time too you don't have to purchase everything at once. Do you have the towing package?

Yes I have the towing package, that's how it came. I bought the wrangler used or "certified pre-owned" like the dealer likes to call it.

Ok so the 35 inch tires, 2.5 inch lift and new rims would cost me about how much? Any websites where these things are sold? Does your everyday tire and rim shop do this things if i bring them the products?

I'm looking at all the options, doesn't have to be the most expensive/best looking, but if you're saying the 35s are a go, then I love that idea.

With the towing package you should be geared really close to where you want to be with 35s you need to pick what tires and rims you want to go with but yes any tire and rim shop can do that but the lift needs to be done by a 4x4 shop if you can't do it yourself. Check quadratec.com

The most important info for tire size/axle ratio and suspension changes is ___

Do you have an auto or manual tranny ???

Right but the towing package with either tranny will leave you closer to the ratio for 35s then not, right?

If you have a manual tranny and you tow a trailer of ANYTHING over 1000lbs-you can get by with 4.88, anything (ratio) higher --4.56/4.10, will just keep you in 4th/5th gear and lousy mileage--you'll never be able to use 6th (O/D) gear--

If you have an Auto-and tow ANYTHING/or not--you've gotta have 5.13 or better yet 5.38-that brings more alpplicable HP to the wheels and you can use O/D successfully, without the tranny always "downshifting" and get good mileage-

If you probably have a Dana 30 front diff-you'll almost hafta stay with 5.13 and YUKON is your best bet !!

5.38s and good mileage and power/w O/D--(NOT O/D OFF-ROAD) !!

In October I'm going to pick up a 4dr sport with tow package and 35s... I'll literally never tow with it... I want an auto cause of the amount of city driving I do now a days for work do you think i shouldn't get the tow package and just regear? I have an aftermarket jeep shop building the jeep before purchase for me and this is going to be my dd so I can take my yj and really finish it up right!

Don't know, if it's a 2011/w tow pkg, then it probably was issued with 3.73 and the same with 2012--

If you're gonna regear--it won't matter whether it has a tow pkg or not-if you're running 35" tires, then even 4.10 gears are almost worthless, especially with an auto !!

Good kuck, I have an auto and the 4.10 gears were TOTALLY WORTHLESS, wheather towing ornot !

For NOW, your only choice is 5.13, cause almost nobody makes a 5.38 (good) for the Dana 30--

I don't think you'll reget having a set of (YUKON) 5.13s put in--USA Gears makes gooduns to, I'm not recommending any other gear mfg !

My regear was done by a Reno, Nv race shop and they've been using Yukon for years and also backup the Yukon warranty/installation and DIRECT you to use Valvoline 75w-90, or 75w-140 for towing, if you don't use that--NO WARRANTY !!

It never hurts to get the cheaper stuff first and save up for the lift and tires. Look at bumpers and little mods first thats what I did.

If you want 35" tires, you'll need

New wheels 4.5" backspace
If no lift-cut flares, cut bumpers, cut pinch seams in back wheel wells
Regear to 5.13 YUKON gears (haveit done)
Get AEVPM or Superchip for speedo correction and tranny shift point change
New swing away rear bumper/tirecarrier-
Add aux tranny cooler, for heat control-

tOTAL COST--around $3800 bucks

Why would he need 37s--

He doesn "NEED" anything-he asked a question and that was my answer, if you don't like it, then you can certanly run your 37s the way you want to-
