Finally made the leap and got my 37s! 37 x 13.5 x 22 to be exact! The drive-ability isn't bad as most people will make you believe, as long as your not expecting the Jk to preform like a Mercedes 6x6 I don't think most people would mind the slower acceleration and heavier turning in trade for a much more badass looking jk. Im running stock gears, stock axels, and stock cv joints, the only thing really beefed up is the front end where i'm running:

Synergy Tie Rod, Ball Joints, and Drag Link
Rubicon Express Track Bar
Rough Country duel steering stabilizer


Also anyone in the colorado springs area with a tire carrie for sale? I got the spare as well but ain't no way I'm trusting that plastic thing on the back.

I mean.... Yeah but come on. Some of you guys play it out like you can't go over 40. I was cruising at 65 no problem and my RPMs are staying a little lower which is a plus for the motor as it isn't jumping to switch gears

I picked 5 of these , with rim, up for $1900 off craigslist. 4 of them have more than 3/4s worth of tread and the spare is brand new. Sure a 20' is always preferable and when it comes to replace the tire its cheaper but I have 22s and love them.

You could have paid less than that for a brand new pair of M/T tires and kept your stock wheels. By why do that? You got 22's now!

Sorry man, but you're not going to find many people here that like the idea of 20" wheels, much less 22s. Most of the people here whee their Jeep, and do so on rocks, so 20s and 22s have little purpose to us. As long as you like it, that's all that matters.

My only question is why does he even need/want the Hard Rock cage if "rock crawling is lame"?

I will not enter in something like that knowing my wife's Jeep won't be crawling anytime soon. I'd rather see someone better protected that actually needs it. We use her jeep just for getting to and from camping places that other people may not be able to get to.

Whatever the intention is, have fun with YOUR JEEP the way it is!!

He didn't even enter the contest. He was just being a smartass.
