OK so I've been dieing to climb someone's tire but I've never done it before...I want to climb my buddies jeep tire this weekend but I didn't ask cuz I don't know if his jeep is climbable and then of course I'd let him climb mine too but I need advice first..... I know the obvious that I need to deflate my tires some and the other jeep has to have a wide tire.... But what else do I need to know? Can his jeep climb mine? Can I climb his?

His is a 2012 2door Sahara with 2.5" Skyjacker sport lift and 3/4" Daystar coil spacers, 1 1/2" wheel spacers pretty sure he's running a 285 tire, I got a 2010 JKU Rubicon with a 4" Skyjacker lift and 315/70R17 Goodyear Duratrac tires..... Thanks in advance for any help.

It'll be hard with full width fenders like you guys have. If you do this, have the tire to be ramped turned a bit. Make sure to disconnect and lock up. Have someone spot you.

Yep, like Eddie said, it'll be harder but it can be done.

So turn the wheel of the jeep to be mounted, deflate tires (about how much?), disconnect, and lock the diffs? And have a spotter. He don't have lockers.... Does that mean he cant do it?

It can be done without a locker, but its veeery difficult. But with the rest of the suggestions your good to go.

O one other thing.... Do I climb up from the rear of the tire or the front of the tire?

Ex: jeep being mounted has wheels turned hard to the right (passenger side) Which side do i mount on? Driver or passenger? Front or rear of the tire?

When I had my old ranger a buddy climbed my tires. I have a pic I just have to dig deep into the files for it.

Found them. Nobody aired down either.

I think that all depends on whether you like missionary or doggy better.

back when i was stock with larger tires and cut fenders,
climbed my buddies 35" tire with no lockers, no sway bars, and it was not difficult at all, rubber+rubber=awesome traction. just drove right up.(with a spotter to make sure i didn't drive into fender...) :idontknow:

Bump...

I am assuming you should be in 4L for tire climbing? Are there any ill effects to the drive train doing this on a paved surface? Won't mess up the 4wd?

Is 4H better? :idontknow:

4 Low, dry pavement is ok as long as you aren't spinning tires and take it slow.

We used to tire hump during the parades, here's 4 of us from a crappy video recorded from the local news broadcast.
That's my Tj -one of the second set of jeeps. We did the tire humping at every intersection during the parade, was a big crowd pleasurer :thumb:

Nice pics everyone!

We had an interesting time with the Blue YJ. The Other YJ has a diesel conversion and front locker, it worked out.

When I tried to climb the YJ on the end it was a bit shaky so we decided it wouldn't be prudent. So I just climbed the other JK.

He was a little worried about his fender so I didn't roll all the way up.

I think they are 16.5" boggers. We don't rag on him for having boggers on though. ;)

It's his first Jeep and he was going for the look he wanted. I would never have put that type of tire on my Jeep. :D
