The following information is based upon driving in and around Austin, TX.
Iíve got an 08 Unlimited with an auto, 3.73s, and 285/70R17s on the stock wheels. We put 35s on it and yanked them off a week later and went back to 33s because it was unbearable in my opinion. With the 285s it is bearable but it still sucks because it is CONSTANTLY shifting. When I get into the hills I turn OD off and its fine, actually almost enjoyable. 75 MPH on the highway Iím turning about 1800 RPMs and if someone farts in the next county it downshifts.
Just over a week ago I picked up an 08 2 door, 6 speed, with 3.73s. Itís got a hard top and 32Ē BFG MTs off of a Rubicon on it. In my opinion itís got PLENTY of gear to run 35s and I think it would be easier to drive around town with bigger tires as Iím CONSTANTLY rowing. At 75 on the highway, in sixth gear, Iím turning 2500 RPMs and I donít have to touch anything to pull out and pass an 18 wheeler at that speed or 60 for that matter. It is unreal how different this thing drives.
I have no doubts or concerns about putting 35s on my 2 door, but it is going to take 5.13s to put em back on the auto.
