Oh yeah..Goodyear silent armor a/t's,stock size since i'm not going to lift my jeep.I only go out on logging trails and old mining roads prospecting.Don't need a lift kit or big tires to do the job I need to do.Besides,it's hard enough for me to get into my jk at stock height,LOL.I'm really looking forward to the superchips tuner.

I plan on just doing the 87 tune,plus the tpms etc.I have a good benchmark on how it runs/drives stock.I will keep a log on how the superchips improves everything including mpg.I really wanted to run a slightly larger tire size,but the better half has an even harder time getting in and out of the JK then I do.Keeping that in mind brings up my creedo,"don't piss em off iffin ya don't have to".

I know what your talking about there. My Wife had back problems so I took off the 35's and the Jeep came down about an inch. Still high enough but not a strain on her for now. Looking at buying 16's wheels and 285X75X16 in a MTR or a Fierce Attitude if I can get them locally. Sometime in August I'm doing this figure the SRA's tires will be worn by then to do it.

Weekend update:

I got my tires and the superchips flashpak all at once on Thursday.Fast service I would say.I will have the tires mounted Mon,or Tuesday,then up to the dealership for an oil change and several minor recall things......Then I will install the tune on the way home.That's almost 40 miles so I should be able to see and feel the difference.I just finished updating the flashpak.that took about 20 or so minutes.For anyones reference:I bought the superchips at www.4wheelonline.com $294.95 free shipping. www.tirecrawler.com 5 stock size Goodyear silent armor at's,[email protected] plus s/h.
