Will be on 35s tomorrow after I get off work . Then Christine and I load up to go on a camping trail run. Should be fun loaded down heavy on a brand new tire thats bigger. Probably run into all kinds of issues

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Tires mounted moved alittle metal in the fender area. Jeeps is getting loaded. Aired up to 15psi.

Doing a 30mile loop and staying on the mtn. Jeep won't move till we head for the trail. 15miles asphalt then 20 or so gravel then 30 on the trail.

35" maxxis razr.

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Back though not many pics.
Tires have amazing traction and feel good at 15psi.

Theres a creek crossing i normally have to do in 4wd. It exits over a small vertical ledge with a couple tree roots. Easily walked out in 2wd
Another spot where a beaver damn sends water down the trail I could do in 2wd but with speed this time I stayed slow threw no mud at all just went right through.

4.88 gears still feel good speedo reading 65 actual is 55. Tires make a nice Humm sound but not to loud and much smoother with balance beads compared to my old tires with most the weights knocked off.

Front shocks feel alittle soft. I may see about firming up the valving. Theyre suposebly valved for 35s and I got used to them with 33s

Last pic is after 70 miles.
Was slightly worried about front fender clearance but only rubbed ounce on the passenger rear but not enough to mark tire or damage any tread.

Denverd get some pics of your 35s up. Or did you.

Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Haha thanks

Wish I could afford a atlas. Im gear up for a jb conversion super short sye. I cut yokes out of a driveline to see if I could fab my own with original parts. Looks like its doable so ill be returning a front driveline to go along with the sye. It will gain like 4" of driveline length with the sye, but also loose tge speedometer but who needs a speedo.

I know you have the 8.25 rear, but I've often wondered if the Ford 8.8 with a speed sensor could run an xj speedo... That would be a super cool retrofit
