Re: 33\'s or 35\'s?
33 super swamper is a big heavy tire. lots of unsprung wieght. they are bigger then 33 inch BFGs. My BFG MT 33s are actually only 32 inches tall. The SSRs are 33.2. my opinion is that those 33 SSRs will twist up those stock axles like tooth pics.
I can tell you how many stories I've read that start with " I just installed swampers " and ends with "broken axle"
Check it out, but I've heard that the procomp coil spring kit is only guaranteed upto 33" tires and only fits with the stock axles. ( I still think that thease new coil kits are cool)
I run the Rubicon express 4.5 extreme lift for my YJ. Very nice lift. It's huge. And fits 33" at full flex with stock bump stops. It could easily fit 35s but I would need to limit the articulation with taller bump stops.
If I was going with 35" swampers, there is only one option. SOA with some beefy axles.In the long run it would be the least expensive.
