F.Y.I. 35" tires on a Sahara or Sport will dog it out without a re-gearing. Many YouTube videos on this make sure that's what your willing to spend. The Rubicon gearing at 4.10 is fine for 35s but not 37s re- gearing needed there also. Me I am sticking with my low rider with 275/65/18s since I have no plans with running rocks! go for it but make the right choice.

Yeah I couldn’t imagine 35’s on mine. People saying it runs fine with 35’s is pure non-sense. I guess the eye is of the beholder on that one.. I wouldn’t be able to stand it personally. 33/34’s (mine actually measure 34”) (NITTO Ridge Grapplers) is fine for now for me.

You really feel the difference on highway, 8th gear is just good for going downhill. Sticking with my 32.1 may go to 265/70/18 next that would give me 32.6 which is considered a 33. Putting it in manual shift will give you some more control with the larger tires, enjoy.

How much of a difference could 1 inch make? ;)

Most MT tires are rated 10 ply and so are very heavy, that effects overall performance to.

ive been eyeing the Barricade bumper. did you install it yourself? any issues?

are your fogs led? or halogen. such a pain trying to figure out which bumpers fit which fog lights.

Self-install, takes about 80-90 minutes, 2 hours tops and most of the time will be spent removing 80 million screws from the factory bumper to get the fog lights/wiring out. I have LED for lights and the Barricade bumper descriptions are good at letting you know if the work with the factory LEDs. No issues at all.

Everyone like the stop start feature? well I hate it so I noticed when driving in manual mode it does not shut down on a stop. I have been driving around for months usually in manual mode and turning the feature off, no need to anymore! great.

I probably would hate it too. However, with the 6 speed, I can control it with the clutch pedal. I like having that kind of control so I can have it activate at a red light and not necessarily at a stop sign. Lol
