Re: Q78-16 Super Swamper TSL (36x11) Tall and skinny

I haven't measured in a while. I pulled them off in September and put a set of Cooper STT Pro on for winter. They are wearing OK running them about 50 miles round trip. They need rotated regularly to keep even wear. They are around 1/2 tread right now. I'm considering selling them since I'm running ...

They are definitely quiet... atleast when they are new. I do expect them to be more noticeable with some wear.

Re: Powertrax Grip Pro versus Detroit Tru Trac?

The Truetracs are very comfortable on the street. I wouldn't expect any issues with them on an auto.

I ran them front and rear on my 13 (manual though) without issue summer or winter. The one for the front 30 will go in my wife's 14 auto when it gets the 4.56 gears.

Re: Powertrax Grip Pro versus Detroit Tru Trac?

I've been happy with the Truetracs. No experience with the other.

Re: 2013 JK NOT a Rubicon, NOT going to build this one....

Yea, It's a D rated tire. The 37x12.50r17 is D, the 37x13.50r17 is E. So far Im happy with them. Run smooth and quiet, only a little time in the woods but they have impressed(maybe surprised) me twice. They suit my needs and the price is good on them, so I can't complain YET. Wait till I get a winte...

Good, I'm anxious for you to get on 35's. If you sell it by Friday, you may be able to get in on Metalcloak's Labor Day sale (hopefully they have one).

Re: 2012 Jeep JKU Sport from MOAB Industries

Lose some of the lift, get back into the 3.5"-4.5" suspension lift range. If you need more tire clearance get into flat flares and/or a 1"-1.25" body lift. You want high steer for anything at 4" or higher. Make sure you have axle side track bar brackets. Do not use a drop pitman arm. Do not use fram...

Re: 2013 JK NOT a Rubicon, NOT going to build this one....

He daily drives his a decent bit, like I do. Going to 37s robs even more power, I personally would want to beef up the steering, and get it more solid, use a really nice stabilizer. Just more stress on everything like wheel bearings, knuckles, etc. I plan on wheeling mine on 35s until I simply cant...

Re: 2013 JK NOT a Rubicon, NOT going to build this one....

Nice, didnt know you got RCVs also. Are you worried at all about the R&P being the weak link now? Always wondered about that with RCVs. I wouldn't go 37s, you should have a pretty bullet proof setup right now! Why would you not go 37" The ring n pinion in a JK is pretty impressive. Even though Slad...

Dynatrac Prorock 44 is installed and getting broke in and fine tuned. The Rear Axle shafts showed up today to compliment the RCV shafts in the front. Went with Made in the USA Revolution 4340 axle shafts. Got them in a package deal with the 4.56 gears for the 4dr. http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d...

Re: 2013 JK NOT a Rubicon, NOT going to build this one....

The Q78s have been great. All 4 balanced out well (took some weight but balanced). They run good down the road and are pretty comfortable for a Bias TSL. They were surprisingly quiet when I first got them but are getting a little louder with wear. I'm cautious on wet roads with them and pulled them ...
