one 33 and one 35 on the rear (33 inch spare?)

With the Ruby's having the limited slip in the back.. if i have one 33 and on 35 on that axle, i think it would burn it up.... right?
I'm thinking of going with 35 MTs for the trails and 33 ATs for the road. (daily driver) Can i get away with keeping a 33 incher for a spare? Or would i have to swap a front tire to the rear and then put the 33 inch spare on the front? (since the front doesn't have the limited slip)

That is exactly what you would have to do, swap to the front.

Wouldn't you want equal diameter tires on the front...for steering and handling purposes?

Ideally you want equal diameter tires, but I know some guys that went up to 35s and didn't buy a spare and have done this to get to the nearest gas station or tire place. The handling is not too bad, you won't be doing 70 down the interstate like this but it will get you off the trail.

To get off the trail, that seems like a whole lot of work. The greater concern with the limited slip would be on the highway coming home, than getting off the trail. The limited slip shouldn't be a problem then either. A LSD allows the wheels to spin at different speeds...hence the limited slip part.

The priority is proper handling and you would want same diameter tires on the front...not the back.

well, ,if it was / is anything like the trash-loc in other wranglers. i'd think that two different size diameters would quickly wear out the clutch in the diff..
Not that I'm an expert by any means...

I agree with csmith on wearing out the limited slip.

Is it clutch-driven? I don't know.

Even if it is, you aren't going to wear out the clutches getting off the trail. No need to swap tires around for a short term fix to limp out.
