    you're applying too much logic here my friend.

    With that said, I was specific to say that it'd be a real problem with 5.38's... I might be willing to give it another try with 5.13
    Realistically, could you turn 40s with 5.13s with the 8 speed transmission? Maybe on the trails in 4 low, but on the pavement?

    Well, I suppose I could show my ass off a bit more but I have a feeling it'd scare people away

    On a JL? Oh yeah. The all new 8-speed automatic transmission can push 37's on 4.10 gears without any problems. I'm totally tempted to give it a try but have a feeling I'll break something

    So, girth is more important than length...

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.
