    I've driven in rain and was surprised they handled well. They are sipped. I've read some negative comments about handlng in rain but have not experienced it. My only bitch is they do hold small rocks.

    They sure do look good, they stick out a lot less than I’d imagined. I’m sold on the size, now to choose a tire. Thanks for the recommendation.

    I’m running 3.73 gears. Didn’t seem too much different than stock. Although I did use a ProCal since I’ve got the auto, I’m sure that hides the difference in diameter a bit.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
