    Whether or not you do coilovers or springs with shocks of whatever brand, I'd look at EVO for the long arms if you go that way. I was wondering about tire size in general on the Gladiator. For trails where you need ground clearance for breakover angles, how big do you need to go? I remember it being talked about on a JK Experience video once that on a 2 door, a 35 inch tire is good enough as a 37 on a 4 door. That is because of the wheel base. So does that mean on a JT you need 40's to be equal to those set ups? I'm sure it'll do great no matter the tire size on most normal trails, but this is a question that will need attention for anyone building one of these. Mel Wade's Moab trip should give us a clue as he'll be one of the first to do it. That EVO build is going to be sweet!
    Probably 40ís. Thatís what Brute went to.

    So youíre saying 40s are better than 37s? Like Ds are better than Cs.

    You also have to realize, that in the video of the EVO Gladiator, it was on 245/75R17 tires, so essentially it was on 32ís.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
