Mine has 2” JKU springs and shocks from repco. 33x12.5 tyres on 17x9 -15 rims
Car is pretty heavy with bar, winch, auxiliary fuel tank etc however the ride is fairly good. When loaded and towing my teardrop it is perfect.
2013 3.6 6 speed

Bugger Boris, I would say Teraflex are keeping all their valving a secret. If you do go down the route of Superior shock, call them up and ask for Angus, he's the man to talk to. Otherwise I'll be selling mine in the new year.

Do you mind me asking why selling them?

Boris selling because I am racing the Jeep next year, stepping up to a full Coilover setup. Been very happy with them, but they won’t keep up with the demands of off-road racing. They haven’t given me any issues the whole time I’ve owned them (around 2 years). I’ll be rebuilding them before I sell them (sometime early next year).

Got over 4 years and 70,000 from mine in 285/70r17. Proper worn out by then. Maybe $250 at the time. Have just put on 305/70r17 in the same $305 plus fitting. One took a bit to balance (they are 34”) but they’re a good budget tyre from my experience and measure up pretty true to diameter. Actual tread width is about 290. Fairly quiet for how aggressive they are for an AT.

So it's that time again.

My 285/70/17 XMT buckshot (on stock rims) tyres are due for replacement and I'm wondering whether I should just buy four new tyres or suck it up like a man and spend some dollars on a package and run 35s.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

I'm running a 2.5" teraflex lift kit on a 2dr 08 sport.
