Itís not that I feel limited by my 38s whatsoever. Wjt partially nailed it


    Youíre 75% correct. By no means do I need them, but if I can roll over small obstacles easier and in turn keep my wife less shitty and gain myself an extra hour of playing when we go out west then itís worth it. Lol
    To each there own...

    If youíre worried about the ride and want things to be more smooth for your wife invest in a better suspension system.

    The truth is no matter how much you spend on your jeep, your wife is still not going to like it. Thatís just the way it is with some things. Just build it the way you want it and leave it at that.

    Itís not even that it rides like shit, a lot of it is the rocking back and forth when on differentiating terrain. Aired down and front sway disconnected helps, but that rear sway still rocks the jeep violently on the right terrain. If thereís some secret you know to help with that Iím all for hearing it brother

    There is a lot you can do to improve the ride and handling of your Jeep and adding 40ís would not be at the top of my list for how I would solve the problem.

    Other than disconnecting the rear sway completely or swapping it for a less stiff anti rock idk of any way to lessen the jarring of coming off of a ledge etc. Iv looked at PRPs and a few other bandaid fixes, but nothings going to solve the problem completely sheís just going to have to get used to it 😂

    I was looking again at the first thread you had a few months back and remembered you had said something about the ride. A lot of guys on this forum more competent than I am, but I think you would get more adverse affects from disconnecting the rear sway bar than just leaving it in place. If you look at how thick it is, I am sure the amount of force needed to twist that bar is significantly less than the front. I do have a couple of questions for you though.
    How low are you going with psi in the tires? The place we get to a lot has a pretty big parking lot, but we usually head up the service roads a bit to get a little away from the sidexsides and bikes. My wife always laughs at how smooth it is down at about 6-8 psi rather than driving in at 28-30 psi. "Fist size boulders" that you mention feel like nothing going over them and I run puny 37"

    When was the last time you looked at your control arms closely? The last time you had them off? When you installed them last, did you set length on just one of the uppers and then get the other to length to where the bolt slides in without much effort? Just wondering if you have the arms in a bind.

    I know it was just the "25%" part, but just trying to lend an idea to try before buying band aids.

    My 2015 with 4.10ís and 35ís (really, they are 315ís that are big 34ís) is livable for the most part.

    yeah theres no way in hell id run with no rear sway. not even considering the anti rock. i air down to around 8 psi on trails which takes most of the impact, its mainly just coming off of ledges or crossing rock garden type terrain that it gets to the point of jarring side to side, not uncommon in moab and colorado where we usually go every year. not sure if youve ever ran top of the world, but that trail is the perfect representation of the trails we like to do. not difficult by any means but being on it for hours gets tiring in the neck and back (atleast in my experience). who knows, maybe im just going too slow. could be a reason i get jarred around more than others.

    the issue with reading my older threads is i tend to make changes very frequently and things i have questions about a few months prior have already been changed and remedied lol. my 38s have like 5k miles on them and im already looking at changing things around.




    on a side note to everyone, i do appreciate everyones feedback, even if youre just giving me shit for wanting 40s.

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.
