    In a self quandary at the moment

    So I'm going to be pulling a camper to Palm Springs on Monday. Not s huge deal, but here is where I've gotten myself stuck. The camper is right at max weight for my jeep, now should I put my stock tiers back on, or leave the 35s on it? I was thinking of switching back to stock for this trip, but then I looked at a map and realized, Joshua tree is right outside of Palm Springs. With that. I would want my 35s I'd imagine. So should I sacrifice some power, or go with my gut and run the smaller tiers.

    6 speed manual 4.10 gears
    I guess I should also add it's a one way trip for the camper.

    I would roll the 35’s and take it easy.... no rush attitude, a little more gas money, so what.... then have fun wheeling at Joshua.

    I like that !!

    I don't need to worry about fuel. the lady I'm taking the camper down there for, is paying all my expenses and my time.

    I guess I was more worried about the power loss on the long up hill grades, heading that way. Maybe I'm just over thinking it.

    I haven't been to Joshua tree, so I wasn't sure what I could get away with for tiers.

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.
