Hit the Keys for a few days of off shore fishing which was a good 6 hour drive for me. 2018 2 door JL Turbo. Dealer installed 2 inch Mopar lift, larger Mopar brakes,upgraded control arm and steering...again all dealer installed...Ran 30 psi in 37 inch toyos on 20 inch rims , not my choice(yes yes I know will, go to 17 inch when time for new rubber) maybe.....Ran with 93 oct and for the round trip Avg mpg was 15.2 mpg.....Avg speed on interstate and turnpike was 80 mph up to 90...cruise control was set at 82mph giving radar more than enough warning time..Turbo was quite fun to drive especially when you needed a lil extra ommph...Handled like a dream even on uneven pavement not a sway or wiggle....was very impressed to say the least...dealer did a great job with the install hands off the wheel at 80 runs straight as a arrow....this is just my JL and my impressions..love bugs were nasty.....covered the front grille layers deep and no cooling problems at all and ran as it should....mind you this was just a total of 700 miles round trip I am still quite amazed the ride was as smooth as it was...noisy ...you bet.....as it should be.....taller the better for me as this is my fishing platform and the higher out of the salt/brackish water the better....First Jeep out of 11 with a hard top and I most enjoyed it as well......will not be going back to a soft top in the near/distance future....love no bugs, can hear the tunes, and feel the AC...sorry to ramble....

Don’t be sorry. That was a great, very succinct ramble! Catch any fish?

I don't see anything wrong with those 20's, especially with tires that big.

37 with 20 actually gave you more sidewalls than 33 with 17, just saying..
Yeah and 30 psi sounds likely over-inflated to me on something that light.

I used to run 24 psi highway on a full-size at 6500# with 37s, but they were the old school MTR's on a 15" wheel
