    Tire size

    I am looking at trading in my JKUR for a JTR. Was curious if anyone knew if I would be able to run my 37s as a daily driver for a short time until I can get the gears and lift? I have a new set of Coopers that only have about 1500 miles on them. Thinking of just having them swap wheels so I don't have to buy them again and put that money into gears and lift.

    Thanks - Erik

    Eddie says in one of his videos that he actually lost mpg when he regeared and that with the 8 speed it’s not really that big of a deal. This is assuming you’re buying one with 4.10s of course

    Thanks, that's good to know. I will be getting the Rubicon with 4.10s. I was more concerned with any clearance issues that I may run into before getting some lift to it.

    Even if you did, you could just remove the lower portion of the rubicon fenders and be fine I imagine

    That may work. Anyone know if the washer on the steering stop bolt is the same for the JT's?

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.
