if they are any good it is a bargain but your zuk axles will never take it. and you would need a grsII and a set of 5.+ gears in the pumpkins to get them to move.

For bigger rigs, 38's and up are the size for the extreme trails. But for a Samurai, 33's are all you need. I went with Dave from Asian Auto Parts and Fred from Canyon State Components with a big group of guys from Driven Auto Parts up Firebird and the White Tanks Waterfall outside of Phoenix, AZ. The Jeeps and Broncos were all on 38's and made our Samurai's look tiny....but the 33-inch-tired Samurais went everywhere the "big boys" went, oftentimes with much less effort. The Samurais had a better breakover angle from the shorter wheelbase, and the smaller size and lighter weight made crawling the rocks much easier.

Each vehicle has its unique "behavior" off-road, which is part of the reason why I love 4-wheeling with a diverse group of vehicles. It makes for plenty of good-natured jabs at each other, and shows the strengths and weaknesses of each truck in different obstacles. I find it fun to be "the little guy" out there on the trail with rigs that weigh 3 times as much as my Samurai.
