Looks great. Sure they will perform better.

What is the height measurement weighted on the vehicle?

I only had the spare in the back for awhile, and then I got sick of not being able to see out. So I've had the 35 up on the roof for a long time, and a 37 will be 3 lbs more, although I don't have a spare yet as I'm looking for a used one

I've had a spare on the rack for years dating back to my old 7" lifted Cherokee, and I've really never felt any difference offroad. It eats up the roof rack space though....

I personally think on the roof is better in the case of an improved departure angle.

The "rock crawler" style tube bumpers that Nay and I have do lack the ability to carry a spare on the outside back, but since we trimmed 4" + frame material off, we have basically a departure angle of an 8"-10" lifted 80-series posessing an aftermarket-style rear bumper with a swing-away tire carrier.

That's right

Some more pics. I may need about an inch of trimming to the rear of the rear wheel (just a sheet metal lip) for rear stuff if I am going to keep only 2" bumpstop drops.

Need to stuff it.

These babies are riding nicer than the last set of 35" Trxus I had. Totally smooth. Interco states to inflate to 65 PSI to balance - I left them at the high PSI for one day and put it up on jackstands having heard others having success with similar tactics.

I notice no difference in braking or handling or acceleration having gone up to 37's. She is tracking perfectly with no extra driving effort, and the ride around town @ 33 PSI is awesome.

Should have done this a long time ago
