37" Daily Drivers

I have been a member of this club since the beginning or march this year and i love it! I just wanted to know of some set ups... maybe some tips from people who have been doing it for a while... just looking to get info and have people show off their larger daily drivers...

i am running a 3.5" rubicon express lift, 5.13 superior gears, dana 30 and 44 (stock), 37x1250r17 goodyear MTR's with Pro Comp 7069's and axle seals in the front.

The only problem i have had in the 3 months is two plugs... one from a screw and one from a puncture.

I love it but at 75 it shakes.... other than that i drive 30 miles round trip to and from work!!!! Vanna and i have a great drive! haha

37s really do work well on JKUs. Match the wheelbase and break over better than 35s IMHO. Be sure & get that 30 sleeved and gusseted.

I dd mine with 37" military goodyear MTR's and a 4" superlift.
No problems at all.

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

I have my GMC Sierra as a primary vehicle....but I also consider my Jeep my DD. Probably about 50/50 between the two. 37" MTR's & 4 1/2" lift.

Never a single issue on-road. Recently went on a a 400 mile trip to the coast and back.....no vibrations or anything.....

until I hit the Home Depot........different story.

Yes you will regret not getting them. I run a 4" Superlift and figured it'd be great with 35s and i'd love it so much i'd never want 37s. I've been running them for a while now and overall, my setup has worked quite well. Nonetheless, every time i look at my jeep, all i can think about is whether the tread depth is low enough on my 35s to justify putting them up for sale to save on my cost for the jump to 37s. I know I'll want 40s next, but I think I can run 37s for a number of years before I ever get bit by the 40s bug for real.

I was going to go with 33's and no lift... My fianc้ kept telling me that I would change my mind and want to go bigger and then she would be pissed... So I shopped around and got my set up and I love it!!!!! I had an excursion on 40's before and loved it... But the 5.5 mpg was awful!!!

My 2dr on 37's sees about 70 miles a day around the Beltway outside of DC. No problems, other then the stares from people, which gets annoying.

Has anyone tried to get better gas mileage and succeeded? If so what'd you do?
