    Iím already dreading the thought of driving around on 35ís with the 3.73 gears my 2017 JKUR came with. I will likely regear to 4.88ís.

    Yeah I wouldnít upgrade the tcase same time, that would be an after thought depending on how trash 4low felt. I do want to keep it useable so it would just depend whether I moved to 5.13s or not. At 5.13 I think my sport case would be fine but donít really know on the 4.88s. I know when I swapped to 37s, the week I drove it before it got regeared on the 3.21s I damn near couldíve drove in 4 low on the highway lol. Wanting to avoid that

    Ground clearance and extra sidewall mainly, the extra tire would be nice as well to fill in the rest of my wheel gap. I donít need them by any means, just a want

    Just stick with 37ís, it doesnít sound like you need 40ís... there is nothing you will do with 40ís that you canít do with 37ís if you donít wheel hard. I wouldnít even think about 40ís if you canít do it properly, gearing and steering will suck with what you have planned

    Couldnít agree with you more. But I think heís doing it for as much as the way it looks on 40s verses being able to run them as you do and I will. Different mindset I guess

    I literally just said I don’t need them lol my 38s are plenty. It’s just something I want to try. I know it’s not ideal, but I’m fairly certain if I can make 37s last on a dana 30 for 2 years all across the country, I’ll probably be fine with 44s and 40s. It’s not that I feel limited by my 38s whatsoever. Wjt partially nailed it

    You’re 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 it’s worth it. Lol

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.
