Starting to see them on the road almost every day now. Lot of them rolling on 37s. They look real good on 37s.

I miss the days when 33s were the standard size tire and 35s were considered big. Now it seems 35s/37s are standard size tires and 40s are considered big.

Grats on the new Jeep. I am interested in how much cabin noise there is with the removable top.

There's many here in Vegas
I was told 35" are fine no upgrades no lift

Agree.. saw one with 37"
it's a beast ...
I'll probably run 35" soon

I'm going to be researching a larger fuel tank or add on tank
For me it's distance priorities first :wink2:

i know someone who did order... Granite color
problem is that color is on hold until second week of July - then they have to build - it may be Aug or Sept before they see it

i copied the website of Launch Options...said Rubicon Truck use this list to build
supposedly i will get mine in 4 weeks

Got my VON# this morning .. "Vehicle Order Number" it`s a confirmed sale
next is the VIN# then build n delivery
I was told they are pushing Black - Red - White to the front of the line
:wink2:

I'm sure that will be fine. We're running 35's on my Wife's JLUR bone stock, no problem.

Guy on our local board is reporting that a 37 fits the factory spare location under the bed on the JT :grin2:.

I expect to end up with a JT too, eventually, but not for at least a few more years yet.

Sorta does seem that way. But making 39s or 40s actually functional, is big time e$pen$ive. Factory axles just have to go, period. Just for starters.

Even 37s, and I say "even" kind of tongue in cheek, because I consider 37s too much for my TJ Rubi axles, but making them actually functional on a Jeep, goes way beyond just bolting on a lift and the tires. But I see lots and lots and lots of JKUs on 37s around here that are in no way setup to actually wheel those big tires reliably. The proverbial mall crawlers. But, I also see a lot of JKU's on 39s and 40s sporting custom tons that are bad to the bone. But man, did they cost a pretty penny to build.

One of the things I'm most interested to see play out with the JL and JT, is how the "new" D44's hold up in real use with 37s. Likewise the 8 speed and 4.10s. If it turns out, that you really can just do a mild 2.5" lift and make them live on 37s, then most definitely, 37s will have become the new 33. I'm not so sure about that just yet though :smile2:.
