Pulled the trigger on some BFG km2's

I just pulled the trigger on 275/70/17 BF Goodrich KM2's. I was going to get the Goodyear Duratracs but they were on back order and we need tires in the worst way. Also ordered the V-tec raptors in a 17x9 with 4.5 backspacing.

They should be here by Thurs! Can't wait to get these on the JK! Next up is a Teraflex leveling kit!

Pics to come once I get the tires and wheels!

Got the tires and leveling kit on today. It took about 5 hours to do the teraflex leveling kit. I'm very pleased with how it turned out. Only weird thing is the ESP/BAS light came on after a few miles of driving. It seems to be fine, hopefully it goes away.

Looks great. About you ESP light. Make sure your steering wheel is perfectly centered. When I pulled my front axle of to sleeve & gusset it, I put it all back together & my light came on. My steering wheel was off center. I adjusted my tie rod & the light went out the next day. Don't know what I did to mess it up, but it fixed it.

I agree with Xman, mine also came on last time I smacked into a solid sand bank & moved my axle over about 2 inches, my steering was all out of wack but as soon as I aligned it all the light stopped coming on

We recentered the steering wheel and after about 10 miles of driving the light went out and has not been on since. As far as mpg goes..... Have only had these on for 2 days but I'm guessing a few mpg less is going to be case with this set up. Not worried about it at all. It's a Jeep not a Prius. Haha
