I'm new to this forum and was hoping someone could help me out. I have a 12 Rubicon and am about to outfit it for off road. I don't do alot of rock crawling but am in alot of mud with the occasional crevice or 2 but I also do alot of road driving. I was wondering if anyone knows how much of a difference on mpg there will b between a 2 in lift with 33 and a 3 in lift with 35 and wich would b better

Trail grapplers are horrid choice for a DD in my choice, tread runs out so fast. KM2s last around 30-40 thousand miles even with hard wheeling. And what do you have? TJ, YJ, or JK? Any lift? And the dick cepek are also a good choice.

I think the KM2 sucks. No siping, terrible in rain and snow, and they run small. Lastly, they are overpriced.

For your needs I would look for a MT tire that has siping. That way you're good for the mud but you also will have a safe tire for the highway. Cooper STT is a great choice but there are many that are similar.
